    You're right - not the best  choice.

    They have good points and not so good  ones.

any better now and can you get them fixed in the  US

        Which one? The 2800 seems  to be a pretty robust rotator with very 
good reliability. I've seen some big  stuff turned with one.
        The best rotator on the  market today? The Orion 2800 with a Green 
Heron controller and my Orion  mast-clamp. The combination totally eliminates 
the 1 fatal problem and 1  semi-fatal problem if you were to use the factory 
        The mast-clamp is $150  and is very strong, using 6 U-bolts.
