Has anybody got any experience with this new fiz unit? http://www.rtmotion.com/
I've got a 3D show coming up and they want to use this in a dual receiver configuration. 
Im used to the Preston 3 and Im uncertain of its reliability. But I noticed the receiver is only 90 grams! and the price tag for a 3 motor setup is only 10k! that seems insane to me. 
Anyway, if it works out I would seriously consider purchasing one. 
thanks

I only trust the Preston system.

Interesting. I've heard that there's a big resistance to scorpio in the US. Here, they're very popular. 
Why do you think that is?

I've used the scorpio and didn't like it much.  Not ergonomic and too complicated.  In general, it didn't work as well as the Preston.  The Preston is tailored to ACs and quick to set up.  It also integrates the Cinetape so one can see the display numbers on the handset allowing much more freedom from the camera.
