Hi,
I?m looking for a small, light and quiet motor for my Éclair NPR my final choice would be for the Aaton ?Alcan 54? , the Haflexx (2nd generation) or the Tobin TXM-14.
Has anyone shot with one of these motors ?
Thanks

I have 3x Alcan motors. Two of which are 24/25 swtichable, and the other is variable speed 5-32fps.

The motor lowers the height of the camera, and lessens the weight by 1-2 lbs. These are not easy to
find...you might consider purchasing a camera package with the motor, then switch the motor and re-sell the package.

Remember not all Alcan motors go up to 54fps. There were many different models made which will frustrate
your search for an Alcan 54.

I thought I spotted a Haflexx on eBay recently, no?

Merci Alain !

would you sell one of your 24-25fps Aaton motor by any chance ???
I would keep my BEALA for other speed...
I'm often checking eBay for NPR motors or package.

A bientôt

Sorry, I'm not looking to sell any of the motors I own. Good luck in your search.
