It's not only the weakest link with the Firestorm, but is the weakest link in almost all, if not ALL of their remotes for any given model of E caller. This has happened on my Spitfire & 2 friend's FX3, 5 & believe also a Firestorm.I have talked to Foxpro by phone & sent a written note to Foxpro about this with no answer back. The same results other folks had on other websites. FoxPro did however replace several parts on my Spitfire for free and it does work much better... So Far! I would have to look at the paper work for those specific parts.Just go to the various websites that sell Foxpro's, such as Cabela's, Bass Pro, Gander Mtn, ALLPREDATORCALLSl etc & read the reviews on ALL their models, & you will see what I mean. There is just WAYYY too much "smoke" for this not to be a fire or in this case a problem, but doubt if FoxPro is listening, as it costs at least $10,000 for any change in any unit... or so I was told anyhow, about 2 months ago.The above is also just ONE of several reasons why the old 416 & 532 is impossible to beat IMO, as I've never had any problem with my 416 as it ALWAYS works. But the 416 & 532 remote and call is completely different than the newer ones. Oh, and I personally believe their remote troubles is at least one reason(along with marketing) they keep discontinuing & replacing their models & remotes one after the other... even when they've only been out for just a short time.FoxPro is still my favorite (so far), especially my 416 but the above IS a real gripe of mine
The remote is by far the weakest link with the Firestorm caller.

Well, mine seems to be a little finicky when sitting on the ground without line of site to the antenna. I have also read many reports of others having to send their remotes in due to malfunctions. The way mine acts, I'm thinking a blade of grass in front of the antenna can make it hit and miss. lol
I've heard the Fury is supposed to have some crazy reception? Supposed to be one of its strong points?I do know if I set my caller on the ground "any of them" they have troubles.

I'll post some pics tonight. There's a wedge piece the detached from the top of the tripod that screws into the bottom of your camera. I pulled out the set screw and drilled the wedge into a peice of wood. Backed out the screw 1/8 turn and filed the tip end with my dremel. Works perfect now. Carlos
Sorry for the confusion, would like info on what seebass used to make his tripod. and how he attached it.

I was surprised to see what the first choice in results were on Google when I searched "foxpro firestorm review" .... Yup, that's right, this here review on our forum by yours truly!
I was told once before but didn't believe it. A friend called me this afternoon and pointed it out again so I checked.
I just thought it was neat to see. With so much info out there it kinda filled me with a bit of pride to see my words on top of a search result.
That is all!
