Hi there,


Quick question. I have a job coming up that I'm a little unsure whether I should pass on or not. Has anyone ever flown a Dragon with Kowa Anamorphics (Prominar i think), LMB-15 clipon mattebox with one filter in, single motor LCS, Teradek plus an onboard v-lock battery on a Zephyr before?


Unfortunately there is no time to test or measure the kit at the rental house, as its not available before the actual shoot, so I was wondering if anyone has used this setup before, or if you think it would be pushing the Zephyr too far. 


Sorry if this is the wrong category. Didn't really know where else to put it.

This is probably well past your shoot date at this point, but yes you could fly this setup, as long as you strip the epic down cage wise, I've been doing an epic with a summilux, lmb-25, 2 motor fiz setup, with teradek and it's been working out fine with one to two filters in. I believe the kowa's are no heavier than summilux's if not a little lighter but I could be mistaken.
