Finally, after two years of wait I got the very first Axis 1 remote. I can only compliment Pete Hoare for creating this amazing product. Top notch build quality, really quiet motor. THe most important part is smart lens calibration, which when carrying lens calibration, detects torque needed to rotate the lens and sets after calibration, so for tough lenses motor can be very hard, on broadcast lenses it becomes gentle.
I guess anyone who needs one channel system, i vote not to look elsewhere!
p.s. can't go wrong with personally carried out support from Pete!
