Hey guys
Just have a question you might be able to help me on. I did read the archives but I couldn`t find exactly what I searched for. I will be using the flyer and 12.5lbs camera. Will the bartech and a heden put me over?
Thanks

I tried a genio FF with a sony HDW 750 (about same weight) and it put me well over the arms sweetspot, it would fly but only just, not very usable at all.
The big problem was adding weight to the bottom of the sled. If i hadn't needed to add any weight to the bottom it would have flown no problem.
It all depends on what weight of lens your using of course. Can you find out a total weight of the complete package, lens, FF and camera.
Cheers
