FX radar chronograph arrived today !!
« on: March 13, 2020, 09:36:16 PM »
from PA.

strapped it on my streamline's barrel and went to testing.....
so far its very nice and accurate and the bluetooth com to my cell is awesome !!
it records and has file storage for many guns.
i gotta get my grandson to set these functions up for me.
i really like it and i think its going to be a major help for me and my
airgun gotta-have's....... ;)

so far, so good !!
grandson got it all setup to store gun info, projectile make, style, and weight.
gone thru about 5 guns and compared to my other chrony's and without a doubt, its about the same as the others without all the PITA of shades, lights, and error codes !!
i've strapped it on barrels and airtubes and even set it on a table and placed a barrel on it and it still worked perfect !!

only complaint i have is it shutsdown above 1100fps, which it tells you that
1055fps is max.....so im good with it.

not only does it work great, its fun to use it too..... 8)

I purchased one when the first came out and it didn't have the direct fit barrel adapter so I 3D printed a V-Block and used double sided tape to attach it to the top of the FX.
It's been working great without and problems and it is very accurate and super convenient to use.

I pulled the trigger on one as well.  In the past I have used Chrony with the rods and light shields and while accurate and worked most often, was a pain to set up and the FX seems to solve the bulkiness for sure.

You will NOT regret it and you will not have any more shot up screens. Years ago when I got my first chronograph, I just set it and my shooting partner who wanted to try it and the first shot with a 45 ACP destroyed it.

Are you having any problems with how close or far the end of the gun barrel is to the chrony?
I was reading it can be finicky with placement.

Except for the price it sounds worth while considering.

Many thanks for the feedback.

For me it has not been too critical at all
My placement is 2-3" from the end of the LDC and there are no missed shots.
This is the positioning for each PCP
(I've not tried the FX on  a springer, gas ram, or guns without moderators)

Where I've had an issue was making sure the cell phone has a clear line of sight to the FX
In my experience the phone needs to be forward of the FX
Even 90 degrees to the side is not good
This may be cell phone not an FX issue.


Hope this helps

Ed

Thanks for creating this thread OP!


I am interested in one of these for the convenience aspect, and to use for finding the BCs of my projectiles with then having two chronographs.

You are the first to speak of comparing the FX to another chrono that I have seen.  Glad it reads about the same as the old trusties.

I am curious about how it stores data, and if it will store a full string or more than one string.  Anything you could share on that part of it would be of interest to me.

The only trouble that sticks out that I have read about is having to keep it very still to get a reading.  Also, poor battery life.
