Hi,

just got my Flyer and i have my Sled (so also the camera) slightly twisted (tilted) horizontaly from the monitor Arm so they are not aligned.
Do everthing have to be aligned ? Shall i just twist it the other side with two hands to achieve perfect alignement or do i have to unscrew something ?

I dont know the flyer but sombody who does will get to your post soon........ I'm pretty sure it should be aligned but I'm pretty sure you shouldn't "twist" it.

Wait for sombody that knows the rig.

Hi Eric

Sounds like you may need to slightly loosen the Allen key that clamp the lower sled in position and twist it straight. You should be able to do it with the same Allen key that adjusts the gimbal position.

If in doubt e-mail me a picture to robin.thwaites@tiffen.com.
