Doesn't the RX33 require a higher rev. of the RQDX3 than is normally
available? ISTR, that I've got a whole pile of RQDX3's, but only one of
which is capable of driving a RX33.

OTOH, Tim's comment about the 3rd Party controller I suspect just did me a
big favor with the MV3 that I'm currently working on.
