    I just submitted a ticket to rtmotion asking if their motors are integratable with the movi pro's internal fiz. I'd also like to know if it's possible to somehow connect the rt motion remote with the movi/mimic so I can pull focus on the RT motion remote when the motor is connected with the movi.

    They are supposed to release a specific cable to make the motors compatible with the Movi Pro but it isn't out yet.
    As for the hand unit you technically can connect it to the Movi controller. They describe it in the Rt Motion Manual.

    Reply from RT motion:

    You have highlighted one of the features we are currently working on! I imagine a cable will be released that will allow this to happen.

    At the moment timescale we are working towards is July.
    I also asked about the remote integration and they replied with:

    We are planning on incorporating the Mimic in our development!

    Whether this is a future release and exactly how it will work I am not currently sure. ​

    I would think that the RTMotion radio is stronger than the mimic's, so that might be a reason to avoid hooking in directly. but if range isn't an issue, then that would be great utility of the two companies.

    I believe both controllers use the exact same radio module
