Pelican 1550 Case (must be re-foamed)

Everything is in used, but very nice condition. No surface rust or any damage. There is slight edge scuffing on the MDR and typical wear on the motors.
Everything works and performs as it should.
The Microforce is a different serial number than what was listed originally, this one is in better condition.
I’m throwing in a fairly new Pelican case that I was using for a monitor, so it will need to be custom fitted for this package.
Also added in, is another battery, and motor cable from what was originally listed.

The MDR-2 is fully upgradable to G4 Blue Dot if need be, a $500 circuit board from preston.

MDR-1’s are listed as “limited service” on the Preston website.

From Preston:

"We attempt to provide service for our products for as long as possible. However, in cases where a significant number of parts are no longer available, the service will be “Limited”, meaning that we will make our best effort to make a repair, but we cannot guarantee that the repair can be completed. In any event, the customer will be given an evaluation, and work will not proceed without approval.
