Making way for my next rig...so offering my Flyer rig with hardcase for $4100 (V-mount, with no batteries/charger) or $4600 (with two V-lock to Anton-Bauer adapter plates, two newly-recelled Hytron 50's and a one-position Titan (Tandem) charger/power supply.)

This rig has served me extremely well. It's in excellent functional condition and has only minor scuffs from use. I've added some small, but very useful upgrades. Details below.

15lb payload capacity allows you to fly everything from a DSLR to Panny HVX200, HPX170, HPX300, AF100, Sony EX1, EX3, etc. etc. At just under 15 lbs, I've flown Panasonic's HPX500. It flies like a dream.

I'm 5'7", 165 lbs so this rig has the compact vest ($500 additional value). If needed, you can easily convert it back to a fullsize vest yourself by replacing the vertical spar and/or the Y-spar. I can also do this for you for the cost of parts. If you are roughly my size or smaller, the compact vest is probably your best bet. I'm right on the edge between the two vest sizes.

Included:
-Original aluminum-post Flyer, all black sled and arm, excellent condition
-Compact Flyer vest, all black, excellent condition
-hardshell Thermodyne Steadicam case, foam is in excellent condition
-standard def Flyer monitor, 500 nits
-V-mount battery mount (optional Anton Bauer adapters, batteries x2 and charger)
-original-style Steadistand
-docking bracket
-hex wrench
-original cables: video (bnc), power (2 pin lemo to 4 pin xlr)
-remote control for monitor
-camera screws and locating pin, etc.
-original manuals for rig and monitor

Extras and upgrades:
-EFP training DVD
-bottom stage upgrade: Kipp handles on both monitor bracket pivot points, for instant setup and adjustment
-battery paddle upgrade: pivot has been upgraded with lock washer and Kipp handle for much easier dynamic balancing, and to eliminate slippage
-camera stage upgrade: kipp handle for dovetail lock

Pictures coming...but hey, it looks like a Flyer! :-)

Local pickup in Nashville, TN preferred. Shipping/insurance costs extra, at actual cost (estimated $200 for continental US). PM me with any questions. I'm leaving town for a two-week job on January 11 so if you're interested, let's talk asap.

By the way, please feel free to contact me by phone....615 294-5671. I'm traveling for a couple of weeks on shoots starting on the 12th and out of phone contact for much of the time, so call before I leave if you can.

I've had a serious offer for my Flyer from a local rental house. They want it bad.

I have very mixed feelings, because I hate to see the rig take the beating a rental unit might, especially after the care I've taken. Also because their offer is part cash, part trade...and I'd rather do an all-cash deal. But I also am chomping to put the order in for my new rig, so I may take it if other interest doesn't materialize soon.

So, if you're interested, now is the time to contact me. I'll do my best to make you a smokin' deal. Email mark (at) sunporchmedia (dot) com this weekend.

Just a note...I'm back from my two-week out of town series of shoots, and able to respond to calls and messages again. I will be shooting with my rig next Saturday the 29th but able to part with it after that.

Still available...

Also I forgot, I replaced the arm connection pieces with official Tiffen hitch-pins, so that the arm can be broken down into two sections for very compact transport, or...more importantly, you can switch to goofy in a flash.

I've got a job with it next week but then it's available.
