There are some rumours in the community about a future upgrade by Tiffen on the Flyer LE Sled is in place soon.
I my humble opion some xtra evidence is presented on the Tiffen website, particular on the Flyer page.

Tiffen now sellls the Flyer LE Sled stand alone also.. !
This can be a upgrade path for first and second generation Flyer owners to get a 2 section post, 12/24V & a nice bigger gimbal as a upgrade for there rig.

Curious about the future upgrade... maybe at the NAB ?

Best, Erik

What are the rumors you speak of? I've heard no rumors, but now my interest is quite piqued!

just like i said.. rumors also on other boards.. and in my opion the fact they sell the LE Sled now apart besides the complete kit.
I would like to see them sell also the arm apart from the kit. Just like the vest. That way people can replace parts if needed.

You pay $4,895.00 for the Sled alone. That means $3,100,- is left for the arm and vest if you look at the startersrig price
of $7,995.00... The vest itself sells for $1595,- which makes about $1500,- is left for the arm.
In my opion $4,895.00 is a lot of money for just a Flyer Sled, even if it is for the LE Sled. For that money you can get alternative SledĀ“s with more options
and even useable on a Flyer arm and vest..

But the update, like i said.. curious just like all of you... and i can be totally WRONG :ph34r:
