If its doing only sometimes, i have only one suspect. The internal resonator of the sLED. the sLED is sensitive to power drops in some conditions. Can you check it with receiver and 4 cell NiMH only setup?

That is possible. The sLED is powered from my DragonLink Receiver, and that is powered from my DJI NAZA Flight controller, and that is powered right off the main 4S LiPO battery pack.

I suppose I can try to put power wires to a separate battery (for testing) and leave the signal wire connected to my RX or maybe just purchase a power regulator? What is the best voltage for the sLED to run off? The problem is the continual triggering of the camera only happens sometimes. Sometimes it takes 5 or 6 pictures per "click", other times it constantly shoots images the entire flight, and other times it works exactly as desired so it's tough to test.

What do you think of a power regulator and again - what's the best voltage to regulate to for the sLED?

Thanks!

MelihK - Do you have a remote that works with the power zoom lens on the Sony Nex5r? I'm only seeing photo and start / stop record etc... Just wondering if this is possible. Thank You!

Hi Geoff,
Sorry i'm in a one week trip and just reading the RCG.
the sLED works between 3-6v without any problem. Just test it with 4 cell NiMh or 1 cell Lipo. If the problem persist, please contact with us over our contact mail (you can see it into the contact page) , We will send another sLED to you to being sure.

I didnt test it but i think it is impossible because of Sony Alpha series remote protocol.

hmmm.. can't figure out the transmitter. I did put it on a 3 way switch. as soon as i power up the canon 5D II in live mode with the ir-unit installed, the camera just keeps on firing. Can anyone help me with the programming of the futaba T 14SG transmitter?

Hello Firemanmc,

Sorry I'm not Spectrum user, I dont know how can you set it up. :/

Please connect on elevator channel for first setup. Enable your camera's IR remote mode. Your camera will shot photo when elevator down, start/stop video when elevator up.

If you want to use 2 position switch like trainer switch, please set the released position signal as center(1500us).

Regards
Melih

The packs lefts our country in maximum 48 hours, but most of time they are waiting on the custom of the destination country for clearance. The custom clearance is highest time cost of the shipping for US and it depends the security level/color of the custom. To resolving this long shipping problems we are planing to move our company to UK in this spring. Then you will receive them in 48 hours by royal mail with a small extra shipping cost

Please check the current location of your camera with the tracking number that we provided.

Thanks
Melih

Hmmmm....not working here Have sony nex5 on "P" with "IR command" using DX8 transmitter and tried two different receivers using the elevator plug. Bound ok, but nothing when you move elevator. I wish there was a way to see if the little sucker was even working.
