have been thinking about the options I have here in the UK for a remote for LMCE.
The Fiire Chief looks like its the best bet but it just seems a bit expensive once you have added the shipping to the UK, especially when you add the fact you end up being drawn into deciding that if you are going to pay that much in shipping you might as well buy the total amount of remotes and IR dongles you will eventually need where as I really want to just be able to buy a basic one remote and one dongle set up to get me up and running and then buy extras as and when I want/can afford.
people being UK suppliers has been mentioned here on the forum now and again before but never seems to have come to anything.
what is the current status of this?
I mention this because I saw on the forum that www.microdirect.co.uk
do a mce gyration remote that is very similar to the Fiire Chief.
are these remotes made by the same company as the mce one?
I have been a micro direct customer for many years, with it being just up the road, and was in today and asked about the possibility of getting them to stock the Fiire chief remote.
now I don't know if this would even be possible as it maybe specific to polywell and they may have there own ideas about if and who they would have for a uk stockist. My thought being that Micro Direct may be a good candidate as a stockist if the demand was good enough.
Andrew, you may be able to offer info on this as I think I saw you mentioning something about stocking the Fiire Chief?
