    I don't know if you saw the 20' Manfrotto on ebay (320741713789). No connection nor knowledge, just saw it.

    i have the Gitzo 504 (predecessor to the 1504) and it's great. I bought a collapsible ladder to go with it.

    320741713789 is a cine stand for heavy movie lights with a stud mounting system.... not very airline friendly. Ignorant seller probably stole it from a production company haha.

    I use construction grade aluminum and fiberglass ladders. They are rigid. It was a real surprise to me how much better they are to work from the usual all aluminum ladders. (I use them for painting and the like, not photography.)

    Since you are going to have to buy a ladder at the end of the flight to use the tall tripod, maybe the answer is get a tripod and adapter to attach it to a ladder. Then all you need to take with you is the head and the adapter, and a long cable release.

    Go out to a Bass Pro Shop, Gander Mountain or Cabella's. They might have a portable deer stand that will work for you.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
