Eight (8) ESCs

I bought this just as I'm selling it. Last owner said it hasn't been involved in any crashes and I have never came across any indicators to make me suspect otherwise (I have never put it in the air).
I've decided to sale this one to fund a new camera lens asap.

Lowered to $950 but I'm open to offers as well.

Looks interesting, nice setup... how old is kit?
Octal w 15“ props... makes it about same size & spec as a stock S1000 ?

Few questions: has it been flown or never completed kit? If flown, are ESC‘s and Octal PDU all electronically solid? To your understanding, any components, carbon plates, hardware & fasteners missing from the kit missing? If setting up as a X8, do the motor plates remove & mount to bottom side of arms, or additional mounts, plates or fasteners needed? Is the 12mm rail mount sized to mount DJI gimbal mounts... Exp: the M600Pro Z30 or X5 mount kits, or would require different rail set?

Your list indicates 8 arms, 8 motors... you photos show 5 straight, 2 angled arms, totaling 7... all 8 present and good condition?

I’ll read up on the Vulcan Mantis.

I honestly couldn't tell you how old it is.

They are about the same size, the Vulcan is a little larger I believe.

has it been flown or never completed kit?
It has been flown in the past, not by me though. I have never put it in the air. It was one of those that I picked up and have never gotten around to getting it all together.

are ESC‘s and Octal PDU all electronically solid?
I believe it is all good and ready to go.

To your understanding, any components, carbon plates, hardware & fasteners missing from the kit missing?
I have roughly assembled it in the past and have not found anything missing.

If setting up as a X8, do the motor plates remove & mount to bottom side of arms, or additional mounts, plates or fasteners needed?
I updated photos to show all 8 arms and motors and also a couple to better show the motor mounts and how they are assembled. For X8, you will need to replace the bottom plate with one of the motor mounts from another arm. That would then give you mounts on both the top and bottom of the arms.

Is the 12mm rail mount sized to mount DJI gimbal mounts... Exp: the M600Pro Z30 or X5 mount kits, or would require different rail set?
I'm not too sure what the specs would need to be for the DJI gimbal. I am more than willing to measure or take more photos of anything that you would like. I was planning to mount freefly on it with a canon cinema camera.

Let me know if you have anymore questions or would like any more photos.
