One of the biggest headaches of using a Glidecam system (besides dealing with the weight issue) is that it's a little tricky getting a "perfect" balance. This video will show you a few modifications you can make to the mounting plate so that you will always get a perfectly balanced Glidecam in less than 2 minutes.

Drop Time & dynamic balancing should have already been performed before working with these modifications. For those reading this post who want to start from scratch in balancing their Glidecam, I can highly recommend the following link on YouTube: youtube.com/watch?v=X0i7ViEwlyI (Or simply do a search in youtube on Glidecam)
