Its unfortunate that we sometimes have to simply wait till a machine shop gets round to our work.

My main chap tells me things will get done by the weekend but the plan sits on his desk till he gets fed up moving it out the way and puts it somewhere safe. After a few weeks I ring asking for a time and the merry go round occurs again. Then I start calling in to see him when 'passing' till he gives up and gets things done.

The market is small for shooting NV compared to mass produced items that can be running for weeks at a time on a CNC machine.

Hi All,

Getting there.

We are behind this as much as we can be to get the back orders cleared. At least those on the back order will get the new product at the old price. 8-)


Cheers

I have not had this happen to me but never the less it seems others have. I used a plastic top from a mineral water bottle - make two holes near the top opposite each other and use a piece of elastic thread knotted inside each hole to form a band. The plastic top fits neatly over the on/off switch preventing accidental operation whilst in transit and the band holds it in place. Simply take it off when when you want to use the ward unit. Best of all it costs 3/5 of nothing and leaves the switch usable by cold or gloved hands. :thumbup:

Can the Ward be upgraded to the same camera that is in the Dronepro or will it always be limited by the quality of the glass on the day scope that it is attached to ?
I understand that this would be at a substantially increased cost but the image quality of Dronepro is outstanding, although i am not to keen on the weight/bulk.


It's not the camera. 8-)

On a dedicated scope the camera only has a few lens elements in front of it, whereas with an add on you have a lot more (the entire rifle scope).

The very best image I've seen is with the 56mm S-Tac. Great contrast and no internal reflections of the IR. :thumbup:

Hi Clive.
Sorry for the delayed reply, I have been out of the country until today.
Thanks for the info.

Hi All,

I'm having a meeting with the CNC lot on Tuesday as they seem to be dragging their feet a bit and then send out an update to everyone waiting.

The price will most likely be going up, possibly up to £50 more for the new design unit.

Orders placed at the moment will be fulfilled at the current prices though if people don't mind waiting for delivery.


Cheers





Clive
