Re: steadicam arm dimensions Width and Height

Hi Serggio

Go and have a look on the Home Built Stabilzers forum for some help ..You arm depends a huge amount on your sled and camera weight and once you have established that then you need to calculate not only arm dimensions but also spring sizes that will suit the loaded sled...Every piece interacts with the other and depends on it and you cannot expect an arm designed for a 15lb sled load to work either with a 2lb camera or a 22lb camera.

What I did after spending lots of money and wasting lots of time is buy a cheap system and then modify it to your requirements and sled load ..it will save you a lot of time and frustration. I have a highly modified (actually rebuilt!) Flycam 5500 and it flies like a dream now!!
