VAXIS Storm3000/ Bolt 3000XT transmission kits comparison demo test at #KeslowCamera and results are surprisingly great.
Test done by 1st AC James Rydings, 2nd AC Q, DP @joshausley_dp ⚠️ Long comparison test results. Between #Teradek top of the line package & #VAXIS comparable package
Teradek $23,000 package (Bolt 3000XT, Bolt 10K, Bolt 703)
VAXIS $12,000 package ( Storm3000DG, Storm5000, Storm058) ❗Full-size RxTransmission Distance: Storm 3000 Rx got as far as Teradek 3000XT Rx in line-of-sight
❗Handheld Monitor Rx Distance: VAXIS 058 5" handheld monitor Rx got about twice the range of Bolt 703 ❗Antenna Array Rx Distance: Storm5000 Rx built-in Array got same range as Bolt 10K but both limits were not met before we lost line-of-sight ❗Non Line-of-sight Transmission: VAXIS performed better with obstacles. All bolt systems cut out once we turned into an alley with VAXIS kept going down the alley for at least a couple hundred feet ❗Initial Pairing Time: VAXIS from boot up to connection speed is 7-8 seconds consistently regardless of range/ Bolt 3000 XT takes 12 - 20 seconds to pair. ❗Reconnection: VAXIS reconnecting speed is significantly faster than Teradek ❗Moving Obstacles: VAXIS handled obstacles such as traffic and plantation/ buildings better
But to be fair, Teradek Bolt 10K worked surprisingly well even when we pointed the panel away from the Tx.
