    Anyone with an OMOD Command and a Sidekick Latitude ?

    It works with a regular motor, but the CTRL port doesn't seems to transfer the data from the hand controller.
    From Rec start/Stop to Focus and Iris. Basically the latitude part.

    I have updated the hand controller, not the receiver as its the last version already. Now I have EPIC 1 2 3 4 im my camera menu and tried the four options.

    I'm starting to thing it's a problem with the OMOD or my Brain RCP, as my Foolcontrol Rlink doesn't show either.

    Also, I don't see any Latitude network.

    EDIT :

    It's working.

    The OMOD Command Protocol mode is actually not RTmotion, but external.

    It's working and it's awesome.

    I just took delivery of the RT motion Latitude (sidekick) and thumbwheel (after consulting with Mr. Gundu.) To begin with i'll just be using it with EF lenses and maybe add motors and a hand unit for bigger jobs down the line. I'll tell you what, the system works. Finally you can focus smoothly using the internal motors. It really is the fifth element when it comes to Foolcontrol. Foolcontrol is plenty useful on its own, but it didn't really allow for easy solo operation or really smooth tracking focus (it has been a little 'steppy' with most of the lenses I tried it with.) I haven't tested the system out thoroughly, but so far I'm very impressed. I tried it out with a Sigma 18-35 and a Canon 50 1.2 L, worked great with both. I miss having easy access to the iris control (as I did with the side handle), but the smooth action of the thumbwheel makes it all worthwhile. I'll try and post a picture of my setup tomorrow, but I thought I'd share my first impressions. There does seem to be a small glitch on occasion, where the thumbwheel fails to control the lens, toggling the from MF to AF on the lens seems to fix everything, hopefully future firmware updates will fix that bug. Thanks Bob.

    Can anyone please elaborate their experience using two Latitude (or Latitude and Sidekick) in conjunction with foolcontrol? How stable is the connection and does it work well for long range? No signal drop or whatsoever?

    I am thinking of getting a second Latitude to use in roaming mode. The thing is that every time my drone gets out of range, wifi signal is lost (foolcontrol is connected to wifi of Latitude - not wifi of camera) and it takes quite a while for foolcontrol to re-establish connection once drone is back in range. This is important because a lot of time when I land the drone, director/producer want to review the shot. Then the issue arises with re-establishing connectivity or foolcontrol not reacting to my touch inputs. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it just doesn't. So I end up running to my drone and operate the camera via sidekick for playback, which is annoying.

    Any inputs would be appreciated.

    What is this Teradek RT?
    Just saw that on Teradek Facebook page. It seems to be a rebranded RT Motion. I know RTM has been bought by Vitek but it's a weird move.
