With the number of K band falses that exist these days, I think Theia will offer the only truly viable protection against Redflex.
Why don't we wait and see? You know, after independent testing.

Eek, I don’t really know much about Redflex and how different detectors fare against it so I generally don’t make recommendations like that one way or another. If I ever have (and I don’t remember doing so), it’s based solely on what you guys have found. Ultimately this stuff is best left to people who actually do have the guns around and can test directly. :)
You're so lucky not to have these cameras ha!

Come to Australia Vortex!
We'll smash some beers and go cop hunting.

I'm sure there's enough people on here to score free accommodation in each state. They'd love it, cruising around cop hunting with you while you shoot some videos and get a tour at the same time haha! Pay your air fare and food and Rd forum members take care of the rest.

I'll find the video where you mention it. Don't worry, I'm not calling you out. I respect the effort and lengths you've gone to in testing. All good.

Thank you! That's very helpful. Yeah that's based on testing and experience from other RDF members, just like what you guys are doing here. I have zero experience with the Redflex. Really it's people like you who are the ones doing the work to learn what works best and share the info with us. :)

With stuff like Redflex, as well as MRCD and MRCT, since I don't have those guns where I live, I'm simply sharing information that others here have shared with me and it's hard for me to say definitively and with certainty what's best based on personal experience. At the end of the day, it's you guys who are the experts here and I'm enjoying watching the testing you all are doing.

Interested to see the dfr7nz vertical. Vortex does not recommend R3 for redflex either. From memory it doesn't sweep low enough right?
Yes. The R1/3 only go to 24.050. The R7 is documented as going to 23.950, but I have pictures of it sweeping as low as 23.915 against Gatso RT-3 speed and red light cameras here. Haven't tested my R7 (or my V1) mounted vertically against the Gasto RT-3 or RT-2 mobile speed camera trucks here. They are all mounted forward facing and that narrow beam is tough to detect from behind. Fortunately the red light and speed cameras are all fixed, and the local P.D. announce on Facebook where the mobile speed camera trucks will be each week.

Same here on the police website for mobile. A simple gps takes fixed ones out of the equation. Victoria is not so lucky. They tell you the 2000 roads they could be on, but never the time they are there from what I've seen online. Very tricky state to deal with. Unsure about other states. I hate driving in Victoria. Some people there are crazy drivers. Lots of tailgating, driving up the ass of other cars with less than 2mtrs of space. Easy place to end up in a 3+ car pile up. I much prefer public transport or cabs/uber in Sydney and Melbourne. Have driven in the Gold Coast and Brisbane. Hired a bike in the Gold Coast and that was easy. Brisbane is good as well. I like Brisbane alot. Had some good fun up there in the pubs. Went out one night alone and the people I met were friendly. Hung out for hours as a stranger and got quite drunk with them. Good people. I'd do that again anytime. Fortitude Valley is alright. I liked it. Didn't notice any cameras up there though. Was too busy doing the tourist thing.

Anyways, continue on. Sorry, my social chatty self often wanders off topics.
