Thanks, I'm so excited! It's really cool because my original plan was to put a switch in my build that I am working on for two power modes. Now I don't have to! I can build one at 5mw and have this one for my High Power. It's awesome how life works out sometimes.

Thanks again Moh!

It went out this morning.

The fact that only 30-some people voted is a sad realization that this hobby has significantly slowed to a crawl. There isnt nearly as much activity as there use to be.

Forums definitely seem quiet lately. I've only seen a few reviews in the past months too.

Well, even when people do post builds or reviews, theres very few replies or interest at all. That's why I haven't bothered posting my last couple builds :/

It definitely has me thinking twice about how much inventory I purchase. I dont want to buy a ton of stuff and never be able to move it all.

For now I'm just going to stick with what I have (and have on it's way) until i recoup some of my costs and don't feel as skittish

As much as wickedlasers was a bad thing, it brought a lot of people to the hobby- unfortunately with the laws in place now, I dont see another ccompany starting up like that. I suppose LPF could advertise on different sites, or maybe people could post builds on reddit, and link everyone to LPF- I dunno. I miss when this hobby was full of enthusiastic members.

I'd be surprised if you don't sell the drivers at least. It's very nice to have some reasonably priced ones, and also I really like Hiemals super boosts. I'm going to write him a review, see if I can't help him sell some more.

He mentioned he might have trouble assembling all the boards himself though. I have no idea what goes into making them, but maybe as a part of your store, can you do a run of them or something? Just a thought.

Also, I thought the give away was pretty cool, you are very generous. Thank you

I think if I get my driver working and ready to produce i can move these 501B's no problem. Producing the driver on my own, I can make it for a couple dollars a piece, and then sell 501 kits for like $20 just needing a module and battery.

Let us no if you decide to go that route..I've been wanting to make my own driver as well, I made my own version of the test load. although it didn't last very long lol.
