  1. PRO Gimbal for sale. Freshly serviced and cleaned. Smooth as butter. Please feel free to contact Tommy Stork for a description of service performed. Clamp-style wrap and old-school short handle included. Cosmetic blemishes from use, but in good cosmetic shape overall. $4500
  2. What we have here is a nearly mint condition Tyler Mount Systems Mini-Gyro. It was designed and intended to be used as an air-to-air or air-to-ground camera platform for helicopters and airplanes. It is unique among Nelson Tyler’s creations in that it doesn’t require any FAA meddling/paperwork prior to use due to the simplicity of design. I’ve used it a few times doing aerial stuff, but where I’ve found it most useful is as the world’s easiest vehicle mount. No rigging required, and can be immediately moved to another position. It’s basically 2 Kenyon KS-8 gyros in a proprietary housing with an amazingly functional “pogo stick” dampener that pops right into the base. Technical info from the Tyler Systems website: http://www.tylermount.com/minigyro.html Ships in a Tyler-branded Pelican. Additional handles and washer pads included. 2x Block HC400 batteries (very few cycles) and quick charger included. ($2500 replacement value) Batteries/charger ship in old Panavision magazine cases. $400/day rental seems to be the going rate for this thing. I’ll swing by Tyler Mount and bother Mr. Tyler to give it a once-over prior to shipping. Extremely useful camera platform. I hate to see it go but my wife said it was either some camera gear or the Datsun when I came home with that fat Sub-Zero refrigerator in the back of my truck... Local pickup in Los Angeles welcome. Ships for free in the contiguous 48. $9950. Reasonable offers welcome. Thanks! Dave
  3. Bartech Rx in good cosmetic and very good to excellent functional condition. Purchased new from Jim Bartell in 2009 and used exclusively as my daily FF unit until 2015 when I got a Preston. Bulletproof. Never rented. M-One motor in nearly excellent condition. Potentiometer replaced and motor serviced in September 2015 by Peter Hoare. Unused since. Functions as new. Includes several gears with the various pitches, XLR to 2-pin lemo power cable, motor cable (straight), 3 inserts/collets, Dovetail mounting bracket, Jimmyjib 19mm dogbone (very handy) with 15mm insert collett. Both "skinny" 32 pitch gears have damaged teeth, the 2 "fat" ones are pristine. All other gears are as new. No hand unit included. $1500
  4. Looking for an omnishot for HU2. Thanks everyone.
  5. That which screws into the gyro and mates with the spud. Thanks.
  6. Rig Engineering Silver Spring Arm for sale. Extremely well-maintained 3a style arm with 13-63 lbs (5.89-28.97 kg) payload capacity. There are minor cosmetic dings here and there on the spring covers. Excellent condition overall. Completely overhauled by Hugo Langer in November 2013. Feel free to contact Hugo for details of work/service performed. Prior to shipping, I'll swing the arm by Robert Luna for a thorough once-over. Can't beat that. B) Spare male socket-block adaptor, nylon arm bag, proprietary spring-tensioning tool, arm-post (6"), and arm-post clamp included. Buyer to pay shipping. Ships worldwide. $7500 USD. Open to reasonable offers. Arm is located in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. Thanks! Dave
