After a long struggle, the levels are shipping.  We will be adding pictures of the level installs as they come.  First off is the level on the XCS sled.  For owners of other sleds, with the PDL, the Cinetronic CDL level will mount in the same spot as the former PDL.  Also attached is a PDF of the level dimensions, and mounting holes for those who are interested.

Yup, I have mine, it's not on my rig though since my rig traveled ahead of me. I'll put it up on the rig in prep tomorrow

Great News Chris,

 

Will there be restrictions to how the level is sitting or will you be able to zero the level in a few different orientations?

The level will need to be mounted with the Cinetronic logo facing up, and within 2 degrees of level.

Does this level have the same inertia compensation that other modern levels have?

So what's happening with this? Eric has gone quiet. Thoughts? Something not working properly?

 

Still don't have mine yet.

 

Rick.

So far so good. Needed a little time to get used to it. Have settings for both dampening and gyro on low. 3 and 1. Like it better. More responsive, like the PDL. Span is set to 2 degrees.

Overall it works fine, more testing needed.

I also zoomed the image smaller, similar to the Tb-6 in size and have the level overlayed on black, outside if the image area.
