I've been messing around with several possibilities, but this one seems like the easiest:

That's pretty good. Only thing is you have to have your shot totally locked and have your actors hit their marks perfectly.

No more so then any other FF system.   Only real dif is that it's not geared, putting more onus on the 1st AC.

Built one - works remarkably well and will likely be the final FF unit EGE has for a while.

I'll try to get pics up of the finished DIY setup, which is looking pretty good right now if I don't say so myself.
