Mini Rotor interest thread!

This may get long winded, and I'm not sorry!

Back a few years ago, some/all of you may have seen the post regarding the mini rotor, that "dapoofyhairdude" created (on PBN). I have been working with two (one PhD, and one master level) engineers to create the best possible file.

As with any engineer, the first run was way over built and the tolerances were extremely tight.

We are at the point now where we have a working prototype and are fairly close to getting it ready to offer for sale.

Things to note right now:
  • The top shell will be different
  • The screws will be flush and match
  • You will need to supply the rotor internals
  • Colors: black, white, red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange, teal, copper, glow in the dark, silver, pink, transparent orange.

I know it is early in the process to post this, but I want to get a feel for how many of you guys want to get in on it. (and some input will be great too).

Once complete, there will be a few options or packages to choose from.


Pricing
The hope is to keep the following prices, give or take a few $. All will include screws.

$20 for the standard shell. No speedfeed, one color.
$25 Speedfeed included, choice of 7 colors. Any color(s) shell you want
$27 Any colors you want, speedfeed, shell comes with integrated GoPro Mount

***we are very limited on speedfeeds*** so only the first 15 or so orders will have that available.


We have a lot of work left to do, but hope we will be ready to ship in about a month.

Here is what we have so far, yes it is ugly, no it doesn't fit properly, but we just hammered out a top shell, to keep the paint in while we work on the guts.

If you want to pre-order one that's fine, I'm happy to make a list, but there is no hard set completion date.

That way, if you get more in there then you can be pleasantly pleased

I'd definitely pick one up, whenever I get a decent pump.

I"m not in marketing; I'm one of those engineering types but it sounds like this would be great for those using 50 round pods...A move I have been considering for awhile.

I have a ton of those. After filling 10 of them, I averaged 53 balls in each.

Assume you reload on almost empty, that is exactly the perfect amount to put back in here

If you want colors other than black let me know. I'll need to order those special for you
