"Real Balls" IN STOCK NOW


UPDATE 1/21/2011: "Real Balls" are in stock now for immediate shipment!


I'm going to run another batch of "Real Balls" ball bearing endplates.

For those that donn't know, these are CNC machined replacement parts that allow real ball bearings as well as adjustable timing. Most folk see about 20% increase in efficiency which means better launches, and more of 'em, too.
Oh, they look pretty nice.
$300 shipped in CONUS
$300 is pretty cheap these days, considering that it's easy to spend more than that on just SERVOS for your ship.
Also consider that you won't ever crash your winch, and maybe your clubmates will volunteer to carry your winch for you if you bring it out to the field...

Enough sales pitch. Send me a PM with your "real name", and shipping address.
SEND NO MONEY AT THIS TIME!
trust me you'll get plenty of notice to pay up.
I have to get the lathe work started outside and I'm stuck on their schedule.
This will help me determine how many to tell them to make.


Thanks for looking

That's the imfamous WinchDoctor Winch. Sadly, no longer in production.
Folks thought $1000 was too much.

I have "the last one" on my shelf waiting for me to start TD again.

Real Balls Set Up


Hello

Please include me in your build list. I'm also looking for plans for the winch base as well. I would love to find plans on the spool. One that will not come apart! I have some machine shop skill and some equipment I can use as well.

The finned brushcaps will go to anodize this week. I expect 10 days or so for them to get finished.

Rick, I'd go halves on a set if you are interested in throwing them on mine, and then if we get better motor then Chuck's down the road we can switch them over to your new motor...let me know.
