We have just received two of the Paralinx Arrows. We will be using one with our Steadicam Pilot rig. Anyone know of a 2.1mm (power output on the stage) to 5v adapter to power the transmitter.

The IDX plate on our pilot doesn't have a P-Tap on it. I could replace the plate, but then the P-Tap cable will need to be wrangled through the sled to the stage. I am trying to use the existing wiring.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

You should be able to wire up a p-tap to 2.1mm adapter for less than 20 bucks in parts. Use the 5v converter that comes with the Paralinx. Am I missing something about what you are trying to accomplish?
