If these two can work side by side, imagine the possibilities.

- Bad location for the wireless Tx.  It should be on top of camera.

- Bad orientation of the Tx.  Should be mounted upright.

Alan, I think you totally missed the point. Of course they actually work together fine, but they dont "work" well side by side, because

that is a terrible place to mount it.

I wasn't going through any doorways or anything. It was solid, and I made it through the day just fine.

 

What I meant about the products working well side by side was in reference to some ideological differences on this forum, and that's all.

 

It is funny how many people are ready to jump on a thread like this to bitch about things.

I have a paralinx and would not place it here no matter what the build is. This is the reason why I did not buy the crossbow. The me the nebtek solution looks better even if more expensive. I bought the paralinx because my main market is Red epic and I can tap into the HDMI. If I need to plug something else I can always place the paralinx on my Hyperdeck shuttle which does two way converter. At least. Place the crossbow on the back of the monitor with some Velcro or dual lock and place the antenna pointing up.
People are not saying that they can't work together because they can. Just that the placement you choose is not ideal.

Things are getting too serious in this Off Topic thread. 

 

Alan, that build sucks. Put the Crossbow on the back of the monitor with some velcro. Nobody assumed the Crossbow would refuse to power on if connected to a Gen 2 Cinepreordertron. However, the monitor is needlessly wide and looks sloppy. The next best thing to a well balanced, tight rig is a rig that LOOKS tight and clean. 

 

Eric: new day/gig, new camera, new build. Sometimes, I fly 1 battery. Sometimes, I fly 2. Sometimes, even 3. Someday, I'll get my rig marked off for how to set up everywhere for each battery configuration. However, dayplaying new gigs all the time means we can't pre-set for everything. If there's time, I'll use your 90 degree test to find db and then set the camera. If not, you build and get to work. 

 

Everyone else:

Will, 

 

No matter what I'm doing, series, day play, commercial the SLED is ALWAYS built the same, that way it flys the same and feels the same.  Train like you fight, Fight like you train
