You might have noticed the very good stabilizer clips, also. The ones shot with his own homemade stabilizer.

Cody is a very inventive guy.
He also wrote a book to help many DIY enthusiasts!

Yes. I'm aware of his innovations and they are really neato. But, the noise that is made when that thing hits the wall sounds like something from the Bugs Bunny / Road Runner show. Uh, I have tapped a few items myself such as walls, a chandelier and almost a few heads with my jib. It's easy to get distracted and sort of forget that there's 20 feet of length still swinging out there when you look away just for a second.

I know what you mean. It's a funny clip.
Ther's another one, I don't remember the name, but of you seen them all, you know. "Buba" or something. He's wearing the rig and shoting itself! At the end of the clip, it seems that he's knocking himself with the rig! That's the funniest clip! :)
