What does it do?
The Butterfly Lift is a complete manual counterweight flying system for payloads up to 350 lb in weight. With a Butterfly Lift you can:
Swiftly lower a payload line to a stage.
— Attach a load or performer on the payload line.
— Immediately unlock a pre-set counterweight and raise/lower the performer with minimal manual effort.
— Smoothly fly the performer at variable speeds perfect for live performance. Max speed varies with operator technique and strength but speeds of 6 fps (feet per second) to 8 fps are typical.
— Dismount the performer from the apparatus while retaining control of the counterweight via a foot-operated locking system.
— Immediately retract the payload line from view.
