Threw this overhead lighting rig together with some C-Stands, please view the image and read the statistics and tell me if I'm pushing a major risk of this collapsing.
The numbers are as follows:
2 standard Matthews C-Stands
2 5.5' x 3/4" electrical pipes coupled together in the middle
2 mafer or cardellini clamps at the most placed exactly where I have 2 clamps in the picture
Extended about 7.5' in the air.
The heaviest I could hang is a MR 1K but more than likely only hanging Arri 300s or 650s
The play in the middle has me concerned.
Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
