Also, I just took a job as a yacht broker in addition to steadicam, so if any of you guys want some help selling a boat/yacht let me know. Or if some of you big timers out there are looking for a place to invest your millions I would love to offer a few suggestions!

There is a thread on the cinematography forum about flying that camera on steadicam. It may be the same person who called you about the job. You should take a look at the thread for yourself, but I think I remember reading that that camera is very heavy....in the range of a BL4 I believe. The person who made that post commented that he had contacted a steadicam operator who said the weight would be "no problem".
Here is a link to the thread.

That is the same DP but it was not me that said it would be "no problem." An ARRI 235 is the only film camera that might be "no problem" but I would never tell a DP that because that makes the day rate seem more negotiable!
I don't think I can handle that camera with an EFP unless someone can tell me different.
