For Sale

Flightscope X2 Elite for sale. $5,000

Martin Granda personally purchased this unit in 2016 for $12k. It's been very well taken care of and runs great. It has been used 3 times so far this spring for fittings and lessons and it started right away after sitting in the office all winter. He is trying to replace this one unit with sth smaller like 2 Flightscope Mevo plus, with less data points. Flightscope is offering a $6,500 credit for the X2 elite if you upgrade to their new X3, the new X3 costs $15,000 and he does not want to spend the $8,500k for another unit with too many data points for his students and his limited flight driving range.  Contact Martin if you are interested or have any questions:
