I searched and searched but could find anything regarding this. I just received my 703HB monitor. I am mounting it to a cam-jam Quattro arm and yoke. Now the diagram for mounting shows TWO ways to do it. One for onboard battery. And one for no battery. I have always run cables and powered my monitor of the sled. Can someone please give me any insight as to why I should run a battery on my monitor? I know a lot of guys do it. Any advice on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Totally depends on your rig and your preference in weight distribution. Most big rigs were originally designed for a green screen monitor that weight 5 lbs. Two batts in the rear are about 4 lbs. A somewhat equal force.

Thank you for the reply. I am currently flying a master series, although I've had it heavily modified. It is my first Sled, and plan to keep it for a bit. I've had Alexa minis as well as XTs on it so far. I'll give the onboard a try, as my sled was most certainly designed for a big CRT monitor. Thanks again.
