FYI, I stumbled across this site while looking for something else. I make no claims for the quality or performance of this gear, but it sure looks affordable. Maybe worth a shot if you can get a money back guarantee. Since they are in Toronto maybe one of our northern brothers could visit and give a report?

I have had one of these as a back-up for a couple of years. Luckily I have never HAD to use it. During my limited testing of the unit it performed okay, not nearly as good as the Modulus, but good enough until I would be able to get a replacement to set . Since I have not tested it in a while, I will be sure to give it another once over on my next production and let you know how it performs in different situations.
In order to change chanels it is neccesary to unscrew the unit and use a jewelers driver. Not a major pain but something to think about.

Hi Jim and Ari,

From that link (thanks to Jim) RF-Link are mentioning a transmitter unit model #M806 suggesting it is ideal for steadicam operators, hmmm lets check the specs first. I tried opening/downloading the PDF for the M806 although it appears the page from their server is unavailable. Ari is this the one that you have?

Let us know how further tests of your backup unit goes, can't pass up a semi-reliable backup system those interim moments.

cheers :D
