how wide are your rig poles? I was looking into a 1inch one but it seemed way too heavy

From the info I could find, the average size people use is a 2" OD pole.

Cool shot.
But to me it looks like the person using that "vehicle" has a death wish :eek:

Good idea. I wonder if I could set something up on my ten speed. It probably would work best with a Multi-clamp setup probably.

Lol, I will use them one day! I have this HUGE setup that goes in the back of my truck with a motor and alumn boom and all that goes up 50' in the air with controls and all that move the camera around...It is to do those Arial shots...I have had it almost 2 years now and have not used it once lol. I am bad about buying stuff and then never using it...I have no idea why I do that!!

Wow that think is amazing, you can do some serious money with that, it's a really specialized type of photography not many ppl do. But I understand exactly what you mean, it's a very contagious syndrome.:)

I need some stability help. I have a 10ft rig in which I broke up into three sections for portability. By doing this, it reduced the stability. I added a middle support section and metal wire, but it did not help significantly. My question is, what can I do to connect the three sections to add more stability?

I'll try to help you with my bad english..

1. Put the right suction cup more up front the left head light.
2. Adjust the cable more to the end of the pole at both sides so the angle will be wider.

Good luck!

Put the vertical pole close to the first suction cup and fix the cables at the ends of the horizontal pole! everything will be fine
