This model has the same features as the TX model.  However, instead of a built-in transmitter, the 500RX has a built-in 500-foot range Teradeck receiver.   The FOCUS Bolt 500 RX is lightweight and comes equipped with a neck strap and monitor handles. 

The model gives the operator the opportunity to provide a client or Director into a real-time look at what is being created.   This product also gives a focus puller the tools to be nimbler and more precise.

The beauty of this model is that it can be easily incorporated into a wide variety of Teradek systems.  The only difference between Sidekick RX and the 500RX is simply its compatibility.
