Before I detail what these two systems are, a quick word. I've been a working Steadicam Operator for 20 years, and have taught workshops for 15 of those years. I've owned 5 sleds, 5 arms and 3 vests in that time. I will still own gear, and am not turning away from our world at all. This is just the right time for me to sell these two rigs.

I have two complete Steadicam Flyer rigs that I have only used to teach Workshops. This means they have not been out in rain, dust, extreme conditions. They've been used 95% inside, with the odd hour outside for running shots.

All of the batteries for sale are less than 8 months old and have only been used for Workshops. They have extremely few cycles on them and are near-new.

Both function perfectly. There are slight differences, so I will name them and be distinct and clear as to what each one is. Both rigs come with the following accessories:

1 each- 1/4-20 screw with custom washer for mount plate, 3/8-16 screw.
Mount plate.
BNC cable.
RCA to BNC, both "genders".
Wrench for gimbal gimbal adjustment.
Docking bracket.
Bubble level.

#1: Black Vest, Gray Cover Arm, Black Sled, IDX Battery mount sled, normal monitor. This system is roughly 10 months old. Gray cover arm HAS HAD all upgrades, including larger upper dogbone bearings, brass bushing inserts and so on. This Flyer comes in a Pelican 1650 case. Each part is wrapped in Foam Rubber and it all nests together nicely.

It does come with a lightweight docking stand but it is NOT a "Steadicam Flyer Stand" as comes with the factory Flyer system, and will ship in a separate cardboard box.

This rig comes with Two IDX E-10S batteries, and a Single Pocket Sony V Lock Charger that charges these batteries to normal spec.

This Flyer #1 system costs $ 7,300.00. A brand new system with batteries and a two-pocket charger goes for just $ 8,000.00. For an additional IDX E 10S battery, add $ 275.00. That would make the system cost 4 7, 525.00

#2: Factory case, Black Vest, Black Arm, Black Sled, IDX Battery Mount. Normal monitor.This system is less than 4 months old. Comes in standard Flyer case with Flyer stand, all normal accessories. With two IDX E10S batteries and the blue standard two-pocket IDX fast charger, this system costs $ 7,600.00. With an additional battery, this system costs $ 7,875.00

The buyer of each rig also gets a Steadidicam embroidered tool bag ( please regard my website for what it looks like ) and one new Steadicam T Shirt. ( Buyer needs to indicate size when purchasing rig from me. )

Payment is only through bank to bank wire transfer of funds or certified check. Nothing in either of these systems is for sale as a stand-alone item. These rigs cannot be purchased through the website linked below. Please regard the links as informative, so you can see what the Steadicam Flyer looks like, and there is a photo of the Steadicam Tool Bag as well.

I have a total of six IDX E10S batteries, all of the same new-ish age. Each rig comes with two and a charger. Extras may be purchased at a cost of $ 275.00 per battery.

Serious Inquiries Only, Please. Shipping and Insurance is borne by the buyer for both rigs.

Best to all,
