Hi

should a practise rig be similar to the type you eventually want to use, or are the principles the same with a lightweight rig and a heavy rig ? I have the possibility to buy a Steadicam Flyer (the original one) and I would really like to have my own rig to practise on but don't want to outlay a fortune until I am sure its for me.

the basic principles are the same ... I would say if you have a good deal on the Flyer- try it... just be careful as the resale on Flyers and most under "5g steadicams" is currently not that good. I've had mine for sale over a year with barely any serious interest.
With that said - I was glad to learn on the Flyer as it was easier to jump to a big sled after.

Hope that helps

I thought resale is a good buy. Any other tips on what to look for when it comes to 5g steadicams?
