Yup, used the wrong words. Thanks.

I can't imagine the Merlin tipping over - you have to imagine nothing ! :) Simply ask someone who owns a Merlin.

I use a standard drop time (the recommended 1 to 1.5 seconds).

If I get the time I might post a video, like I say it is not a real issue for me as I never zoom whilst using the steadicam.
