to be completely honest, i would rather build rusty's frame (aglhobbies) and use his floating plate to mount a gimbal on.

This frame just "looks" like a cinestar..... which i dont need a kockoff to feel cool about myself
So a couple of dampeners at $75 a piece makes the Cinstar8 worth the extra $1300? I am pretty sure I can order some and make some holes myself, if I want to use that dampening system.

The CineStar is a rigid, simple and proven design that works, but the prices for what essentially is a couple of carbon fiber sheets and tubes is insane. And the design is so simple (part of the attraction) that pretty much anyone can make something equivalent.
