Updated original Eq5 pro hand control
27 October 2023  | 

Working as direct replacement for Eq5 pro as you said it would. Can now use with CdC without pop-up messages as per my NEQ6. I note the 12v power input socket to HC, I assume, is a different connector from the original but as only needed for software updates I have no expectations to need to use it. Delivery time excellent. FLO answered questions asked before order placed very promptly.

Brilliant service from FLO, kept me informed on the status of my order and dispatched when complete.
As for the product it what I expected from skywatcher.
A lot easier once I downloaded the operating manual,waiting for clear skies to test run it.

Excellent product and service from FLO
21 July 2022  | 

I needed to replace my old handset and the new one works perfectly. Even more impressive was the service I received from FLO. As usual FLO responded quickly to my query about a replacement handset and once I had paid for my order, the item was shipped the same day and arrived all the way in South Africa 3 days later. Superb service as always- thank you FLO!

Blew the board on my goto handset so ordered a replacement from FLO. As always the delivery was swift and without problems. The handset works a treat and was the best price, happy days!
