I just got my replacement LabRadar after the first one arrived damaged, not from shipping but from lack of quality control at the factory. I've not had must time on it but first impressions is that it has a big learning curve. 'Read the manual' and watch videos before you try it out. This is not intuitive and it takes many rounds of trial and error to get it right. -I've found that a USB battery pack is sufficient to power it in case you don't have 2A batteries. -You need to have the gun barrel about 4 inches away from either side and it must be mid device, not higher than center or lower, almost exactly in the middle. -Adding new strings require you to turn off the device and back on. Not sure if this is by design or a defective unit. I've heard that they are coming out with firmware updates for connection to a mobile app. Does anyone have the inside track on whether it will have Bluetooth connectivity or USB. Release date? Is anyone using this for IDPA or USPSA matches? I'd like to hear more about how it compares to other Chronos.
Seeing if any of guys running a lab radar have had weird issues with it indoors. I've used mine a bunch out doors and it's fine. Indoors it can get a little weird. I tried to chrono a buddy's open gun today and it did not seem to want to pick up shots at all or at least with great error. I tried all sorts of settings, lowering the sensitivity, changing the offset, I even tried turning it on it's side and shooting over it. It just did not like it at all with errors and sometimes it would just shut off. After trying non comp'd guns (glock & 1911) and getting results we thought it was the concussion. So I tried my 50ae and it worked fine as well. So we chalked it up to errors from disturbances caused by the comp, but don't really know for sure. Outdoors with comp'd AR's, M1's, bolt guns, etc it's perfect. I guess indoors the challenge for any chrono. It's a great chrono but not infallable. Anyone have any sucess trying to chrono an open gun shooting 9 major in a 7 lane indoor range? If so please let me know your settings. Thanks!
