I had a shot with a brevis on an FX1 with the 8Ft crane. I am using it with the Manfrotto 516 fluid head. Not too bad but I would advise to keep it to 8Ft and below. 12 Ft would be kinda stressful I think!

That's a clever idea. One less weight to have to carry around all the time.

I suspect it might be problematic if the water sloshes around when you move the crane, but that would probably only be an issue if the crane wasn't sufficiently rigid.

nice idea with the water bottles! I think if they are filled to the max n well secured it should be fine.

Thanks for the reply Sean.

I will limit myself to the 8 ft :) That's all the amount of air I want anyway...a few establishing shots and some rising and lowering shots elsewhere.

What sticks were you using? I have the 515mvb manfrotto legs...do you think they'd be ok? When all three stages are locked together it's pretty damn sturdy, and with the 8 foot crane I wouldnt really need to open any of them up.

Kesslers

They're a lot cheaper than the competition. Why?

I think "less expensive" is a much more accurate descriptor than "cheaper."
