over 1 year ago – Sun, Jan 26, 2020 at 06:08:56 AM

Hi all,

 

It’s been a few weeks since the last update and we would like to share with you our progress. 

 

All of our efforts are dedicated to filtering the motors, separating “good ones” from the rest. 

 

This is a complex task, as we need to test the motor's performance while they are working and spinning outside the top, simulating the way they would work inside the top.

 

The motors

 

We have developed such a tool and already tested a few hundred motors. After the CNY (end of February), we will fly to China with this tool and teach the factory how to perform the tests.

We will update as soon as we'll get the results from China. Once we have enough motors that have passed the tests we can start manufacturing.

 

For those who might have concerns regarding the new epidemic and our health, The factory is, at the moment, located in a “non-risk area”, let’s hope this won’t be added to our obstacles list.

 

Moreover, we’ve read the different speculations of why we have closed the Indiegogo campaign, the answer is that it was closed by Indiegogo. They have changed their policies regarding Indemand projects and many projects were closed at the end of 2019, this doesn’t mean that the project is dead, just that it can’t accept new pledges.

 

Thank you for your patience, we’ll update once we have more news to share. It’s taking a long time, but we'll make this product happen.

Best, The Coronaless Team.

Hi all, 

 

It looks like we have found motors that will work well, we have spent the last few weeks testing samples from this batch. 

 

In the next 2-3 weeks, we will send our fearless team member to the motor factory in China to examine and test the entire batch. 

 

We will also need to redo all the bottom metal parts that we already made in order to fit them to the new motors. 

 

 

We hope to finish all before the Chinese New Year in late January, but we have learned not to promise a shipping date till we actually ship. 

 

Thanks for your patient, it’s in our best interest that you will get your perfect LIMBOs as soon as possible, and we are working hard to make it happen. 

 

Best, The Fearless Team.

Hi all,

 

We are still working on finding a good motor supplier, nonetheless, at the same time, we have started developing our own motor.

 

Developing the motor from scratch is a truly complicated and expensive process, perhaps even more complicated than developing LIMBO.

 

We are doing it because we have no choice, we have been trying to avoid this process for more than 2 years, however, It looks like it’s the only way to deliver a good product.

 

Once we get the motor done, the rest should be easy, we have already manufactured the other components.

 

Here are some photos from the production line:

LIMBO Production

We understand your frustration about the delays, we suffer from it too, these are not good days for us as a company and on a personal level. We would greatly appreciate if you would avoid mean comments, it doesn't help, it’s in our best interest to deliver a great product as soon as possible.

 

We are still optimistic that we will find the right motor and deliver a great product.

 

For now, we don’t have a final shipping date, but we will keep updating you about the motor and shipping status.

Thanks for your understanding

Wed Sep 25 '19 Announcement
almost 2 years ago – Wed, Sep 25, 2019 at 07:54:23 AM

Hi All,

We are having more delays and the best we can offer at this point is to try and explain our situation.

 

In order for the factory to commit to the quality of the product in mass production, we need to run a successful test batch of a few hundreds units, with a definitive maximum amount of defects (less than 1%).  

 

We have done this process a few times already and each time we had too many defects to start mass production. We were sure that we will pass this time and finish production at the beginning of September. But unfortunately, we are still having too many defects. 

 

The main reason is inconsistency with the motors, even though they are from the same supplier and should have the same spec. There are small differences that cause problems.

 

We are now back to the motor supplier to try and make the motors more identical. Then we’ll need to do another test batch before starting mass production.

 

We know that it’s disappointing, but we have only one chance to manufacture all LIMBO’s, and it must be perfect.

 

We will update again once we get the results from the latest motors inspection.

Best, the F team.
