    Remin Kartmaster

    I called the manufacturer to look info custom half shelf but the lady I talked to said they cannot offer that only full size shelves. Perhaps I spoke to the wrong person. Maybe I should share pics above jwill with them if you'd be ok and talk them into it? If not I am looking at building a version of my own but in the meantime here are my custom shelves useful in 2x work modes full vertical and 4 wheel drive. Work in progress, need to make a few more tweaks but looking forward to working with it next week.

    Record Run Wireless Timecode

    Unless they require the specified ambient kit - In a situation like this I have had great success with sennheiser g2 tx and multiple rx's or comteks same config Tx at camera Rx1 at slate Rx2 at recorder I had a client that used Panasonic HDX 900's up until a few months ago and this was the exact workflow we used as they too required record run time code for their post workflow -Ken

    Remin Kartmaster

    I was gonna try and fabricate my own with the help of my dad who has a full blown machine shop, along with some other mods. But is the quality of the custom one they made you on par with the cart itself ie is it sturdy locking into place etc?

    great info. it makes sense the shelf is for fully extended. i have some of my own custom shelving in mind with the compressed form of this cart but shelving not a necesity. i also like the idea of the fork flat, handle up and half flat bed which i had not thought of. about to purchase one soon and just want to make absolutely sure i understand correctly - this image below, the handle can swing around and the cart lays on all 4 wheels, locked in half position (i.e. you have to push button to unlock and extend for full flat bed), and the fork can be unlocked and flipped up or left flat as well? i am trying to make absolutely shure the kart wont try to extend while pushing with gear or pulling up small inclines etc. wish i knew someone local to inspect in person. i really appreciate the input also, wheels are solid non-pneumatic polyurethane? if anyone owning one may have time to snap a down n dirty photo in this half flat position at their convenience i would be forever in debt

    if anyone here owns one - can you confirm for me if the kart has to be fully extended to long bed position in order to get the handle up for flatbed 4x wheel pushing or can it be unfolded and compressed to a 4x wheeled short bed as an option with handle up? forgive me i can only seem to find images and video demonstrating it in fully extended flat bed position with the handle up. but it looks like it could be half sized as well, similar to rock n roller carts? hope this makes sense. i know camera guys who own these bit they always have them fully extended so i never got a chance to put this query to the test. ...dangit i just came across an owner review that there is no "stop" at half position which is a bummer if true. maybe someone here can indeed confirm and/or has a solution since we all seem to like to work compact? i love the accessories in this link wow is this crafty. leads me to belive if there is so short bed "stop" i might be able to figure out how to modify -Ken

    Np50 chargers

    I think we went off the rails on multibank chargers yes this is for np1 lithiums not our np50's BUT this got m3 thinking i want to explore what makes these older 4 bank 4 at a time np1 lith chargers tick

    Slots are a little loose on these chargers

    Np50 chargers

    i think multiple brands of chargers is the first order. just today the right side of one of my newer amazon chargers was blinking red to green depending on pressure of the battery in the slot. this is different than the left side complete failures in recent months. the lectro single charger confirmed the battery needed full charge and did the job. i might have to take this thread to "do it yourself" to explore building my own reliable multibank charger that i feel i can rely on

    Np50 chargers

    i am interested to know if these are just cheapies with their name stamped on them or if the insides are quality electronics. i dont see any technical specs online listed at least where i had looked. the SGS version's price is a little too close to the cheap ones i already have that have failed left and right.

    Np50 chargers

    Great input - do these have different color charge status indicators? The ones i use currently power off of usb from my titanium aa chargers. Out of 4 of them 2x had the left side fail. The amazon ones are crap unfortunately

    Np50 chargers

    Martin you bring up a good point do you use those because you choose to over cheaper dual bay options? For instance i feel the single wall wart model that comes with lectro ssm looks more reobust and reliable. Qiality product, Less likely to damage batts etc

    Now that zmt's and ssm's are a plenty what are people using for multibay chargers these days? Mine are Amazon purchases that are less and less reliable

    Zaxcom TRXLT3 discontinued :-(

    I have been all zmt since they were born knock on wood the trx's as backups have never been touched. Am i crazy though thinking ultimate lithiums used to get 6hrs in trx2 n trx3's? Just over 4 hrs on zmt's but it has never been an issue thus far. Adding the np's has not been an issue for me i have different brands i have found that i rotate through and keep multiples on hand
  15. Interesting update from keith, who by the way is indeed the man at comtek. The pr-216 confusion all comes down to the fcc. He said that with Comtek being a smaller company keeping the same labeling allowed them to maintain compliance to some degree. The proper way to signify these tv5/6 units when reselling is "pr-216/76-88" which Unfortunately in my case the seller did not do and I was misled. I am in the process of getting a refund. But I can't win - just bought a another used PR216 that visually checked out. but when I received it and ran tests, it failed with 3 different transmitters. According to keith at comtek it was indeed a 216 MHz receiver based on serial but had been serviced before and its symptoms were requiring a need of more service. High pitch whine no latch on tx etc. Now I need to try to return this one for a refund. Thats it. No more buying used comteks for me unless here on jw. Used Comtek buyers beware it is rough outside these jw walls -Ken
