Default New user, please advise if incorrect posting

Hi, New User here, sorry if im not posting in the right place, I'm looking to build my own vest mounted steadicam rig, dual arm, preferably not with PVC- this rig would be for a Canon XL2 (roughly 9 lbs) and be built to potentially handle an LCD field monitor as well. Again, sorry if im not posting in the right place, any help would be greatly appreciated, Im just looking for plans, materials, spring tension/weight ratios etc..

thanks,
ive looked everywhere, and theres too many mega cheap diy steadicam builds/plans to weed through, not to mention i cant find much on builds for cameras of a higher weight class... if there is a forum on diy rigs, how would i go about being moved into one that might suit my situation?
