Elinchrom Skyport Speed issue

For someone with the Skyport Speed transmittter, should the hotshoe on the transmitter be able to flex up and down or should it be rigid and unmoving where it attaches to the body of the transmitter? I picked up one off ebay to use with my D-Lites and I am suffering from limited range and irratic behavior. The test button triggers the strobes consistantly but the camera is only 50-75% reliable. The behavior is worse in the speed mode and range is very limited. I am thinking that the unit should not be feeling like it is spring loaded on a pivot where it attaches to the camera.
