RC Hot Air Balloon Camera Platform for sale...

I've decided that I dont have enough time to devote to this side project, and its time for a garage sale....up for sale is my rc hot air balloon kit.....

It was built for me in March 2006 by www.modelballoon.com
It is a very solid still/video camera platform. I've hauled up to 12-15 lbs with no problem. Was successfull in shooting photos and video from 50 ft, all the way to 500+ ft (I'm estimating, it can go wayyyy up) Average flight times of about 20-30 minutes. Cost per flight of about $5 each (just the cost of propane) It has only 10 flights on it, and the balloon is in perfect like new condition. Just attach your mount for another aerial option or solid backup...

Heres whats included:
Model Balloon Series 2 Ready to fly: ($2100)
12v inflation fan (rigged up new car fan with battery clips, $150)
900ft of heavy duty teather rope and spool ($100)
Propane refill adapter ($25)
(The propane tanks are not included since they can not be shipped, they are only $4/ea at a local hardware store)

Value of $2350.00. Make me an offer....

Heres a link to the manufacturer:

Also for sale, is a Askman custom promount with HS 85BB servo on the tilt.
Like new, works great...had Canon S70 & Canon 10d mounted.
Paid $250...make an offer?
