Worked perfectly the first time! Review by Matt
The MR receivers are built with a plastic case which seems fairly durable. There is a telescoping and articulating antenna on the side of the case that would allow you to mount the receiver with Velcro to your mortar rack and allow you to orient the antenna in the desired direction. On the back edge of the case are the spring clips to attach your ignition devices and the main power switch, the system works with Talon/Talon II igniter's or quickmatch. I used the Talon II igniter's for this review. The spring clips have good tension and I don't see the igniter leads falling out of the clips, especially if you use the recommendation of doubling the lead over when using just one igniter per receiver, the receivers are capable of running (3) Talon series or (5) quickmatch. I used (2) Talon II igniter's without a problem. The power toggle switch has a nice positive click and markings for open and closed positions. On the face of the receiver are two LED's, the red LED is the indication of a fault with the connected igniter(s). It's a little different than other firing systems that give you visual indication when everything is OK, this one gives you visual when it's not OK. I prefer this method, it's easier to see a glowing red LED in a group rather than searching for the one receiver that isn't glowing. The yellow LED Is more of a power indicator, but does does extinguish (along with the red LED) when the receiver has received it's cue command. On the back of the receiver is the battery door where the (4) required and not included AA batteries are placed, it's the normal spring action battery compartment. Also on the back is the pairing function button, this button allows you to change the factory default cue channel of the transmitter, the transmitters come from the factory with a sticker on the back indicating the 'intended' channel for the specific receiver, but by using a paper-clip, turn on the receiver, hold in the button until both LED's flash, and while continuing to hold the button, press the desired button the transmitter remote and release the button. Now that receiver will fire with the assigned cue button. I have done (4) receivers on one cue without issue, while the specs don't say a number you can have on a certain channel, I would assume that there is no limit. The transmitter is your basic handheld remote control that takes a 9v battery for operation, the we buttons have a nice positive click when pressed and there is also a red LED that lights when a command is being sent/button being held. The antenna on the transmitter is telescoping but not articulating,

The case I received in this bundle works just fine. The picture in the image isn't quite accurate, the receivers fit by laying them on their side, I prefer antennas up, and fit (6) per side. There is a sectioned off area behind the receivers where the transmitter remote snuggly fits. It's an inexpensive case, so I'm pleased with the construction and functionality, the lock/hinge is a little cheap, but I didn't expect I would use the lock all that much anyway. Although, if I were to pay any more than what I did, I might have a few complaints on the quality of the product, it's priced just right. It's a good way to carry around all the 'stuff'.

All-in-all I've very pleased with the purchase and the product worked as advertised on the very first test, my only complaint would be the pairing button, it does not line up correctly with the hole in the back and you have to go in at an angle to press it..not a deal breaker, but can be annoying if you plan on doing this a lot. I would easily recommend the product to anyone that needs an easy to use and setup solution for their home shows, or, for even a more advanced enthusiast that wants to do some cool stuff with mortar racks that are far apart but on the same cue without having to run bundles of wire across the show area. Keeps you at a safe distance and allows you to enjoy the show from where everyone else is too, what's better than that! Great product. (Posted on 7/6/2012)
