    Don't let the hype mis-steer you. ALP is constantly improving their non-lookup table system, while the new guys aren't even on the market yet and even advanced hasn't seen complete testing results.

    I'm not knocking TMG or anyone else involved, but they still have to prove themselves against the competition (and I know RDF eventually will).

    I would if -

    1. The heads are really that small
    2. They actually plan on support this time
    3. The price for absolutely everything including Radar detection is under 5k
    4. Most importantly it actually works against ALL lidar.

    These points are not optional. I already get these from ALP.

    x100. SUPPORT and contact contact with the manufacturer is the only way to go. Like how Tom is always in contact with ALP/Croatia, thats how it should be. If not, I'm steering away from it all

    Is that a brainstorming diagram you made of how you would try and wire up additional sets of receivers on an ALP for example? Interesting concept. I just wonder if it could actually work even if formally unsupported.

    I don't think that would be ALPs?

    There's no way you'd ever need 6 heads in front.

    Honestly, a $200-300 IR RCV 'whip' and a TX sensor might even be sufficent. Don't know really, it's entirely brainstorming.

    Yeah the only way to do that is to buy it when its actually finished and your not buying a beta product.

    Agreed. I just couldn’t figure out what the wiring diagram was for. Wasn’t sure if he made that or pulled it from a vendors site.

    I'm well aware of the hype of a new product. My issue is I don't have $1,800 burning a hole in my pocket to get a Tx setup (2rx/1tx front, 2rx rear) from ALP for Dragoneye. So $800 for 4 heads and one less diode up front if it stands well against new guns is not bad imho.

    What really perked my interest was the about screen in the website. Also, if you pop open the app, the update button has 3 algorithm options. Don't know if that means periodic testing will need to be carried out to see which algorithm is most effective (or maybe it's only for beta testing and I'm looking to deep into it :sigh:).

    There isnt any "hype" that I know of. I Hope not as the TMG Project is just that. An ongoing community project. Yes things are shared as we go but do not construe that as hype...just keeping folks updated as they request....best we can within the rules of the forum.

    Exactly, unless there is a sustained period of progress from Stinger.

    What no one ever talks about is the full size dragon eye in eccm mode and obstacle mode. You can shoot it through bushes at an angle, limiting a jammer's return strength and resulting in punch through as one guy on youtube showed a video titled "alp busted". Also in obstacle mode, the full size dragon eye sensitivity and filtering is increased dramatically. That speed trap was NASTY. The tx head alp makes is like no other and that poor guy didnt have one. The TMG HEAD DESIGN IS AWESOME AND UNIT MAKEUP IS AWESOME!
