Also wonder if the adjustable vertical risers could be used for the tripod and lashed together. I like the idea of them being able to break down to 4' lengths and are pretty light weight.
Those specific adjustable pieces may or may not be strong enough, but somebody has definitely made a version which breaks down into 4' lengths - see post #203 of this very thread:
