    Dean, Thanks for the video. Well what can i say, they move super smooothly. I hope they soon understand the right way to do it for the homing. Cause i dont see whats the f***g problem, that means they shortsightedly want to push their more expensive product by not allowing us this feature.

    Yes very smooth and thats with drives straight from the box meaning I hadn't even tuned the motors to the drives which makes a big difference to motor smoothness.!!

    I understand what your saying because I thought similair at first but when you look at it logicly I don't think thats the case because the IP-M and IP-S & A are very different animals. To me the IP-M is clearly aimed at the stepper world because it's frequency just isn't high enough for the Servo world. Where as the IP-S & A are designed for just that purpose and thrive at running servo's and high count encoders.

    Thou the IP-S runs steppers very very nicely Very few will buy the IP-S for steppers due to it's high cost and Cslabs know this.!

    Now where I feel the problem lies is that Cslabs are clearly Servo biased guys, the manual clearly shows this by the fact they put steppers down. Also if you look on there web site they don't sell or make a single thing that's stepper related and that's because they are secret "STEPPER HATERS". .
    They also want to sell there servo own drives and servo motors.!!

    Now I think they are realising that there may be some value to us pauper stepper muppets and probably due to others and the likes of me pestering them for slaving etc they have started to sit up an take notice a little.? . . . Probably not the case but I hope so.!!

    Also believe me they certainly know how to make homing work because the IP-S is the best dual axis homing I've ever used bar none, works like the ESS could only dream to do.!! Infact the single axis homing is probably the best I've used, it's so smooth and reliable it never misses a beat and without any false triggers yet very sensitive to switch/input under normal working conditions. (Say this because Charlie did have an issue but was special case and not Controller related.! . . .infact the issue would probably have fried lesser controllers I/O.!!)

    So what I'm saying is don't be so quick to pull them down just yet and give them a chance as they are good guys to deal with and certainly know how to make excellent product.! . . . They just need encouraging to look more towards the Stepper world as well and not be so biased towards servo's.!!

    Nice review. Now I need to raise some money for an IP-S.
