    Just saw this, how much are the different antennas and what is the range increased to? It looks a lot like the tomahawk system but much shorter range and obviously a less expensive option.

    Hey Tristan,

    Thanks for noticing!

    You are right, the Arrow-X is more descended from the Tomahawk Line, than from our Original Arrow Line - but we think it's very powerful and represents the Arrow Lineage very well - also Arrow-X sounds a lot more B.A. than Tomahawk Lite - right?

    I any case - with the standard antennas - we usually get 600 feet (200 meters) to around 750 feet max (~250 meters).

    Using an Array is not a guarantee of "MORE RANGE" per se, rather better link robustness - so that said, results truly vary in the wild, and we leave it open to your experimentation and feedback on what you can get beyond our stated normal max range.

    Wr are currently offering Free US Shipping until october 31st on any order over $100!

    If you need any further assistance or have any questions please feel free to ask, and we can be easily reached at info@paralinx.net

    Anyone with "in the wild," experience with these? Finding the Arrow Plus way too limiting and considering this as option.

    I have the Paralinx Tomahawk. It is more money, but it is amazing. The range is outstanding.

    We have been doing car commercials, hundreds of meters range back to the agency from the tracking vehicle.

    We achieved 1.2km just the other week with the Array Antenna! (the range was so extreme that I sent my grip off to measure it...)

    This week, we were using the MoVI on a snow commercial, with my MoVI Grip snowboarding into a jump with the athletes while I was hundreds of meters away operating the head with a perfect picture the entire time.

    No experience with their other products, but the Tomahawk has changed wireless video for me. It just works now.

    Sweet. I like the Arrow, just way too limited for any UAV work.

    For us, we are never more than 700' from the copter, both pilot and camera operator, so likely this will be the solution?

    Are you also flying your Movi with a copter? We'd never have the copter 1.2km away from the pilot, so thinking the 700' range is likely the solution here, assuming it is truly 700'?

    We only use the MoVI on the ground.

    You're using the Controller? Do you attach the Tomahawk receiver directly to the Controller, or did you go with the perch and some iteration? Looking at options for mounting. Curious what you found worked best. Ideally I think you'd want the receiver on the Controller directly so you can move it freely?

    Yes, the controller is the best way to operate the MoVI.

    I had my grip put a 15mm threaded rod about 4" long off the back of it. I can drop the Receiver on there if I am wanting to be mobile, with a small attached monitor.

    Or, if I am in one place, I like to operate from a 17" monitor, and just have the receiver mounted to the back of that or on a stand.
