    Thank You Gary. Actually, it is my real name. I do not know why it mashed it together. I am Steve Young.

    There is a ton of people that ordered Day 1 (November 2nd). I ordered day 1 at 11am and got an email last week saying it should be shipping by the 12th.

    I ordered Day 2, Nov. 3rd and haven't heard anything. I expect it'll be a couple weeks before I do hear anything. If you ordered on the 9th, I'd plan on a long wait!

    AHHH guess what I received today?!?! <3 <3 <3 my beautiful MoVI PRO!! Well when I say mine... Ours... CVP's demo unit :)

    We obviously ordered a massive batch before the MoVI PRO was announced officially but Freefly only sent us one as they wanna spread out the delivery fairly across various dealers and individuals who have ordered on the first day. A bit upsetting cause we want them ALL NOW!! But if all goes to plan, we should receive them all before the end of the year, so that's still ok :) We have 4 left on that order which are up for grab fyi.

    I will be organising an open day in our central London showroom next week or the week after. We'll send a newsletter out once I confirm the date.

    Mine just arrived today!
    The ring is ridiculously bigger than I'd imagined. It will be very difficult to find a case for it actually.

    I ordered mine on Day 3. I've reached out to customer service but they wouldn't give me anything specific. Hoping I'll hear something this week.

    Likely receive date. . .next Friday. In Georgia. But somehow managed to have 10 batteries on order for a total of 12. Graham, I don't know why, but I think I blame you lol so. . . How excessive is that?

    That's exciting, Sebastian!

    If you're powering the camera as well as accessories, I don't think 12 is excessive. If you're just powering accessories, probably overkill. I bongo-tied the chargers into a half-stack milk crate with a power strip, and I've seen other people cobbling things together to make it fast to connect all the batteries.

    Do you own another gimbal, or is this your first? What are you using for follow focus?

    I have a feeling we're all going to be discussing DTap outlets on here soon...

    Lol yea we are. . .

    Not my first gimbal, sold my m5, keeping the m10 I got free last month tho. And I still am frozen on what to replace my fried redrock micro remote with. It did a great job a a number of shoots, but very hesitant to rebuy, considering not only does bartech make a solo operator focus knob(didn't when I bought my redrock), but redrock is about to release the navigator that runs of com port, and works with the integrated FIZ driver. So I know I want a backup/secondary system (to the FIZ freefly, or someone else, releases to work with the integrated driver on pro), but dunno which to pull the trigger on. I decided to wait till my gimbal arrived in hopes that a FIZ for the integrated driver would be released by then and I could postpone the purchase of focus controller for a while. Does not look like that will be happening.

    I only own an fs7, however, I plan on using RCP quite a bit on my drone if I can find cheap access to a red camera around me. Either way, I definetely plan on running the camera off the batteries if it works. Good advice, I'll make sure it powers my fs7 (with a battery in for counterweight purposes) before making battery decisions.

    And I'm sure what ur saying will make sense once I see the batteries and chargers, but can u post a pic of the charger setup u speak of?

    Here's a pic of the battery crate I made. It's a 6" tall milk crate from Filmtools, with bongo ties holding the chargers with their AC cables tucked up, and I used velcro cable ties to neaten the 2nd cable going to the battery side. Also, I found some rubbery padded shelving liner at the hardware store that keeps the batteries from sliding around on the hard plastic.

    I'll probably re-work this eventually but I have three or four jobs for the Movi before Xmas and needed to get something quick and convenient on set.
