    Have the S4 head version of the Aero. The S4 is ok, not nearly as nice as the S6. I like the 701HDV and MVH500AH a lot better than the S4. The head is removable, but specs are different for the S2 version with the legs... pay attention to that to make sure it's what you want.

    The legs of the Aero are decent. Flip locks are a total bonus over twist locks. Own the Benro ball head photo travel tripod as well and hate those twist locks.

    One key point to mention - there's no way to tighten the locks on the Aero legs. This is a HUGE oversight. I was expecting to see adjustable locks like the A2573F and A48F are. These will slip over time. The convenience of getting this on a plane when needed is a huge benefit though and why I did not return. Needed backup travel setup.

    Benro is doing some interesting things. Manfrotto doesn't have great lower cost fluid heads, or even passable mid-level, so I can see Benro taking this market.

    Also, as I have the Benro S2 head, it would be cool if Benro sold just the Aero 2 tripod without the head, just to save some money. Nice looking idea.

    Would be even lighter if offered in carbon composite, which sounds like a possibility.

    They say it's "501/504" plate compatible, but in my experience, the 501 and 504PLONG plates are different, and not compatible. The 504 is larger. Believe me: I have both 501 and 504HD heads and it's frustration on a stick that the two plates won't fit the other head.

    I think they perhaps mean that the larger Benro head uses the 504 plate and the smaller Benro head uses the 501 plate.

    Unless they have developed a gripping system that is large enough to fit a 504PLONG and can compress small enough to grasp the narrower and shorter 501 plate.
