Hello,

Curious if anyone has had a chance to use Chrosziel's "The Rig"? I did on the weekend for a short. My heavily modified EFP went down for the count and a local service-provider allowed me to use his sled for the duration of the shoot. I'm sold on the design and functionality of The Rig and am considering the purchase leap. Any insights are welcomed...

thanks, dc

Hi,

From what I've heard lately it is not going to be made anymore...

The Chrosziel company was purchased and "The Rig" is not in the new managers' perspective.

(and it's not even about the two patents infringements...)

If someone with more complete info can chime in...

I'm from munich and a friend of Christian Betz who did most of the design!Maybe it would be best if you'd write him a mail because for me it's hard to believe that he's giving up on his baby!Could be that Chrosziel is going to stop making it but Christian will make it himself and I'm sure he'll guarantee service for the next couple of hundred years...!Just write him an email and I'm sure you'll will get all the info you need!

hello guido and thanks for the reply. your name came up today during a conversation with walter klassen. he was the local service provider who both owns the rig and who let me use it this past weekend. i really enjoyed flying it. i'll write christian and ask what his plans are.
