Has anyone looked into building a telescoping post for the Flyer?

Optical Support here in the UK did it. There used to be a picture of it on their website too, flying a stripped down XL!

So in response, yes it has been done.

Just thought I?d mention it!

Thanks Rick, I am talking to them now.
Also, I am looking into making what Jerry Holway calls a 'peg-leg'; a telescoping post extension, mounted on the dovetail. Right now I'm looking into using parts form a Manfrotto monopod plus adjustable quick release plate.... We'll see how it goes,
best, soren
