They got a good deal for $7000. It looks like it came with a master vest as well as the original efp vest. The original efp vest had a pretty weak center spar so the upgraded vest is cool. Looks like the standard efp arm with gray spring covers. An original video cage, some arm post and the original j-bracket (A nice relic of the way things were before the f-bracket). The sled looks stock efp with the original LCD and a CRT. Cables and two cases.

It’s rare to see these rigs for sale anymore. The last complete efp set up I saw for sale was quite a bit more then that and did not come with any extras. I would say whoever won the bid got a pretty good deal. What’s nice about the efp rig is that it’s so volatile, easy to modify and upgrade. I picked up a carbon fiber post, pulled the Pro gimble off my pro 2 project and the thing flies awesome. With a good machinist, a bit of research and ingenuity, you could fix the pesky dynamic balance issue but, there are still guys out there doing amazing work with the stock “battery mount.”

Just my 2 cents. Good luck
