Hello,

This is the flyer arm that Charles Papert heavily upgraded for his running rig. I just got this back last week from Tiffen for a quick tune-up before the sale.

It's fantastic, super smooth, really light, and devilishly cool!

Modifications:
Heavier Springs (Supports up to 32lbs+-)
Bearing upgrades
Full size block (can be converted to stock in minutes)
5/8th post (can be converted to stock in under a minute)


I'll be including in the sale a soft transport bag, all of the parts to convert the post and block, 12inch post, regular post, and a low mode bracket.

$4,000

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions at: Craven@mcsteadi.com

To add to this: I was always pretty proud of how this arm came out. My machinist did a fantastic job on the mods. Many have asked about the design since.

To clarify Michael's description, either the socket or the armpost mount can be quickly reverted to original in the field. So, you can use the arm with a lightweight Tiffen vest with the mini-socket, or any standard vest. You can mount any sled with the smaller gimbal handle size, or any 5/8 gimbal. Mix and match as required. And all mods were non-destructive, the arm is still stock except for the improved bearings and springs.

It's a really great little arm and would be ideal as a backup for light cameras etc.
