I post with pic.s here is link not working.


I went to an Ultimate in 2000 but continued to use the vest and arm. Rob Luna serviced the arm in 2004 and I continued working it through 2013. The arm needed a modification which was accomplished by Tom Gleason/Cine-Widgets and is pictured.  This is not a STEAL for someone already steeped in gear but is opportunity for new comer. Let me know if you want more info/pics.


Great first rig, static and dynamic balance, flat spin. $4,000, David at dscmove@yahoo.com


IIIa modified 2 battery – 12/24 volt sled # 458; Operator Vest  s/n 496 IIIA Arm s/n 482; with Gold Springs (heavy) with post


The arm has repair at the post casting, as is (see pic)

The batteries need to be recelled. May want to only recell a couple and plan to swap to Anton Bauer plate for main battery.


Wonderful rig to learn with. Hard driven standard def green screen, digital level and frame lines, top stage donkey box and exceptional top to bottom weight ratio. My time with this rig ended on a tv show with it spinning flat, dropping straight, very good dynamic balance. There is a fact sheet if you’re interested.
