Hi,

I have a rex-1 and an mc-17 motor. can I just buy an old school 12v lead-acid battery from radio shack and touch the 2 connectors from the motor to the battery to run? is 12v too much for rex 1? Will this blow up? I don't want to blow up.

also anyone with experience with the mc-17 motor? It seems like after I adjust the settings on the be22 transformer 60hz, 110-130 volts, 24fps, set the camera from "mot" to "0", it seems closer to 24 fps when I put the camera on 64fps than when I keep it at 24 fps (when plugging into wall). I'm assuming with the peg in the 24fps hole of the transformer that any camera setting above 24 fps won't matter?

thank you please reply within 8 seconds.

Not exactly 8 seconds, but your motor shouldn't have blown up.
The voltage (DC) you need is written on the side of the motor in a little table : you need a particular voltage to run at given speeds (two rows : one for H8 cameras, the other for H16). It think you need at least 24 V. DC to run at 18 or 24 ips. Don't forget to put the motor lever from 'Run' to 'O' position, set your desired speed on the camera, and lock the side release (pushed all the way back, where it sticks).
