    Please forgive me if this has already been posted, but is there a PDF on how to connect the Pro to the controller?

    I just read the manual, but is there an adapter to connect the MC-RX on the Movi PRO GCU? (Picture above)
    Or how should this work?

    Graham, I connected the RX to Pro and controller works the pro just fine. When I remove the RX I have no control of the Pro with the controller. Do I have to leave the RX on the pro fulltime now or did it not properly bind? Thanks

    Hi Jim, the Movi Controller requires the receiver to work. It can't bind with the built-in wireless, that's just for the Mimic. Pages 71 and 72 of the Movi Pro Manual talk about this.

    I made a velcro 'cuff' that goes around the pan tube to hold my Receiver. The cuff doesn't stick to it, just velcro's to itself, so it can slide up and down or be removed easily.

    Ok thanks Graham. Figured they would have that built into the Pro. I was just going to velcro it to top of pan tube flat but would love to see what you came up with. Freefly should hire you. You are always Johny on the spot for replies.
