Merry Christmas

Santa always has a back up plan, just in case the reindeer are indisposed. In the case of my RC hanger, the back up is a Dynam WACO.

Jeff
Finished tested product will go out the door for around 60 with basic fitting equipment depending on size of unit and volume of vapour needs

This. You may want to wait announcing the thing or even showing pictures / videos until you have some sort of copyright or patent in place on it...that's what I would personally do.

For a second there I thought you were talking UMX Beast... then I saw Castle 80

Why not try it with another Xoar 17x8 and see what she do?
