Selling my Ultimate 1 sled for $22,500

Note: I am NOT selling my XCS gimbal and monitor arm at this time.

XCS Ultimate1 Lower Electronics [s/n 038] with:
XCS PDL installed into LEH
UNO Frameliner installed in LEH

XCS Upper Camera Platform
XCS 2.0” Carbon fiber telescoping center post [19-31”]

This sled is in excellent shape. Very, very clean!
I have kept great care of it and never had a crash with it.

When I first bought the sled, I had Greg put an extra coax on both the top stage and bottom LEH so I could use a second monitor for return video. It could also be used for an HD monitor.

I had mailed the LEH out to XCS about a year ago for a once over and rewiring. It is currently set for wiring option #3.

I am including a handful of XCS manufactured camera power cables. These are coiled cables.
Aux 12 volt; Old Arri; Moviecam; New Arri; Pana/Arri; Panavision; Red One.

I am also including one original XCS dovetail, an XCS transmitter bracket that mounts onto the LEH, as well as custom gore-tex rain covers for the LEH and batteries.

I do not want to deal with an international sale so USA buyers only at this point.
We can discuss shipping depending where you are at, but I will include a pelican 1650 case that has foam cut for this sled to keep it safe and dry.

let the questions begin...

I am willing to sell just the Lower Electronics if that is what someone would like.

New, the LEH with the internal PDL would cost $18,500.

I would like to get $14,800 for the LEH if i sell it alone...

or if you are looking to upgrade from your Ultimate 2 to an Ultimate 1, maybe we could work out a barter.

my LEH was last out to XCS for a check up on 8/31/2011. It is in A+ condition.

Currently it is set for wiring option #3 which is now standard for the Ultimate 1 sled.

This provides direct battery connections on the 0B 302 12 volt connector. Greg Bubb recommends you run all your video cameras off this connector. This will allow you to hot swap batteries without shutting the camera down. This, however, means that when you turn your sled off you will have to power the camera down as well.

from the Ultimate Manual, Wiring Option #3 is this:
"All battery plates are direct wired to the upper camera platform’s auxiliary camera power connector, Lemo 2B 302. This will deliver direct power from the battery; it will be connected to the battery management system and monitored normally. This will not allow you to run the ARRI 3 cameras at high- speed only (past 60 fps) because of the common ground. Pan/ Arri’s are not affected because they are 24VDC power inputs and can be run up to 120 fps without issue. All batteries will be monitored normally by the battery management system. All other cameras can be run at all times on the sled like option 1."


It is very easy for XCS to change this sled to Wiring Option #1 or #2, and there is no problem changing this wiring as often as you need to.
