PRO GPI is currently in the process of making the new, 3rd generation battery module. Expected release is in Feb of 2011.

it is downward compatible with the current lower e-housing. price is expected to be around $5k.
there will be more travel for the aft batteries as well as a t-bracket adapter, that lets you fly two batteries on one plate for more power.....the system will be highly modular...

Yes the further back travel was added specifically with 3D in mind.....BTW....since we always have to add alot of weight to counter the front heavy beamsplitter rigs...

Can't wait to check it out -- it will be sexy! I heard the batts can go pretty much anywhere you may want them (top/bottom/farther forward or back) and there will be a "foot" to set it down or mount shiite to.

I'd heard it was a secret and if you talked about it here you'd be sent to the bottom of the list.....

It occurs to me that I'm not prone to using those little smily faces after my jokes and not everyone shares my sense of humor. The above post is indeed a joke referring to PRO's worst kept secret. That said, no official announcement has been made and I respect the dickens out of the people at GPI so I'd prefer to let them say something.
