There was about four inches of clearance (Two on each side) in the stack hallway.
The machine could do both tracks full ahead, but wasn't much for correctional changes, as it wasn't an even distribution of power with out the sticks full forward.
Pretty much the worst RC ever......
Maybe the next time a building is built with that many windows, the architect might be able to work in an access point.
Do not connect these two devices with out using a short XLR cable as an extender.
We were able to get it separated, but it was not easy.
This appears to be strictly Sony issue, as no other XLR based device we had access to had such a poorly thought out locking system.
This brief and poorly produced video will cover about 90% of the possibilities.

Problem: Unit no longer charging after a fall to a carpeted floor.
Opening this thing is a bear, its mostly glued shut, so if you have a heat gun, get that out, and you will be a few steps ahead of me.
This unit is poorly designed, and the components seem to invite failure, and a one way trip to the trash.
There should be a recall on this piece of trash.
This is a $50.00 charger, so I kinda expect a little more at this price point. At the very least, make it so that if you do wish to try to service it, that you don't have to destroy it to get it open.
Others with the same issue:
A little bit of retro tech from the 1997 here.
The NewTek™ CALIBAR was an NTSC test signal generator designed for both studio and field operation. The unit had 24 test pattern signals that could be used to set-up, test and calibrate a variety of video devices back in the days of 4X3 Composite video.
Yea, I really did eat it, it tasted absolutely nothing like a pea that can be found on our planet. Why would they simulate a pea? It tasted like some kind of grain product shaped like a pea, not great.
Granted, I don't lick my own butt, so I may not be their target audience, but still......
Sometimes things look better when someone else is eating them.
Yea, he started young, this machine was purchased from Northern Tool and equipment. He enjoyed it for several years before moving on the bigger equipment made of metal.
Trying out a new camera this morning, and the gimble wasn't enjoying it much. So forgive me for losing control of it a few times there. My gloves were more difficult to use than I had expected. I think I need a new battery for the car, the last time it did its pretend door close, the dome light spend a cold night on, and killed the battery.....
Its amazing to me that a system as old as I am no longer works properly.
Its not like going digital has made it more difficult for them.
They test it monthly, it just looks like no one is actually monitoring it.
What good is a test if you don't actually monitor it, and see if it worked?
The last round, all we got was the sound, and no scroll bar. Weird.... Spot on by Bob Kovachick though, well done.
