    Hi Red Team, can anyone confirm that the read speed of the MX sensor is in fact the 5m/s Jim talked about with the current release build for the MX?

    thanks very much

    Jim has stated that they are currently using a slower read-reset time during this calibration period of the sensor. This hasn't been changed yet, to my knowledge. From midway through March:

Soon, that will go back to where it was when we showed M-X at RED Day. EPIC will be released with 5ms out of the box.

    I would have posted this before... but I forgot. Sorry about that.

    It will come once they have some of the other tweaking done with the sensor. As of right now, it sits at around 8.5 I believe.

    Skew is an exaggerated problem. In real life you almost never see it.
