As promised, more updates have been posted to our Facebook group. For those of you who haven’t seen the video yet, here is the gist:
In order to make sure that every camera goes out with a top notch motor, we’ve developed our own motor test jig that is currently being used at the factory. This custom jig allows factory workers to install a motor and test it automatically, within a matter of seconds. The motor is an essential part of the camera, so it is of utmost importance that we perfect this process.
Now for an important piece of news: due to a shortage of motors, shipment of the cameras has been pushed back by one week. This is a supply issue that we, unfortunately, could not avoid. However, to really speed things up, we’ve built five extra test jigs to help the factory easily test and deliver quality motors. This delay is minor.
The good news: The first cameras will be shipping out on September 25th!
Other Functional Updates
- We’ve completed the first iteration of our dual battery charger. We’re working on improving the model, making it smaller and more efficient. The dual charger will be released shortly after the camera.
- Right now we are doing finishing touches on the packaging - finalizing graphics, making sure they represent the Revl brand.
- There is a preview of our second axis available to view exclusively for our Facebook backers group. The camera plugs right into the axis and can be used to take awesome follow shots.
That’s all for now. Just remember September 25th! We can’t wait to get the cameras out there so we can all Revl in some real adventure.
