    Just got my Movi Pro yesterday and it all works great! Have the new PS4 controller and it works with the latest firmware. I got the start stop cable for my Alexa Mini but it won't trigger the camera. Is start/stop not supported yet for Arri?

    HI Mike, I think this cable only works with the Movi Controller, not the Mimic.

    Good to know. Thanks as always Graham. BTW I got that bike rack and drilled a baby pin receiver on the back.

    Nice! That looks really clean.

    Regarding the Arri cable, you would think they could eventually offer that functionality with the Mimic. They seem to be able to control everything else with it. Maybe in a future firmware update?

    I would sure hope so. The option to start stop is on the PS4 controller and it seems like a really easy thing if it already works with the Movi Controller. That's the only thing that's bugging me. I have an Arri WCU-4 but use EF mount lenses most of the time so I can't start stop the camera with WCU-4 because it's going to the AMC-1. It's not a big deal but I would like to find a better option then just pushing the button on the camera.

    Hey Mike Moghaddam,

    What is the name of that baby pin receiver you mounted to the back of that bike rack to make it into a Movi Dock?

    You can trigger start stop from MIMIC as well, however only place to change camera type (which changes how record start/stop is handled) would be MōVI Controller. Its on our list of features to add to MIMIC as well.

    Mike, do you not have the RS cable for the AMC-1? We use our AMC with our Alta8 + 2x futaba controller and run/stop with the WCU-4. It would be great to utilize the Movi FIZ but we need to be able to utilize industry standards for controlling FIZ, aka the bush pilot might be an answer. We have also experienced radio interferance between our 2x futabas and the mimic at the same time.

    Hi Rob,

    I did get that cable after I started this original post and it works perfectly. It allows me to power the CForce motor and run/stop. Thanks for the post. I just wish I knew that before I bought the Movi cable but hopefully it will work in the future and give me another option if I want.

    I'm hoping someone develops an RS protocol for the Futaba so I can easily run stop accordingly utilizing the range of my futaba. As of now, my Bolt 3000+paddle and Futaba out power my WCU-4+AMC-1 so we loose camera control while still having VT and full gimbal control, which makes for annoying early rolls, or having to fly closer to controls, simply to roll the camera.

    Can you not change the camera type via the app or back of the Pro? I am hoping to just get the movi to arri/movi to red camera cables and have run stop via Freefly API?

    There is an upcoming v1.4 release (1-2 weeks). Mobile apps have added option to change camera type for record start stop
