You should have received the rotor, 16 bolts and washers, 125' cable with 
connectors attached, control box and manual. They originally did not come with 
the "pin" bolt.

The SDX was the first in the 2800 series (previous was the 2700). The current 
model is the 2800DXA. I do not use the absorber as I have a very heavy thrust 
bearing on top. IMHO, the shock absorber is useless but YMMV. Consider 
augmenting with Rotor-EZ only if you desire computer control. This rotor has a 
preset feature which will allow you to "point and shoot." Last but not least, 
do not over tighten the mast bolts (this is covered in the manual). I think 
that you will enjoy it especially with the "ramp down" feature. Have fun.

Semper Fi,
