Hi Everyone,

Heres a short video showing how we make our new focus motor. Each and every motor is machined from solid, then EDM wire cut off the plate, polished by hand and anodised black. The two motor shells are made side by side and stay together throughout the process, an individual serial number is engraved on the inside to ensure that the polished halfs match up perfectly when the motor is finally finished.

The Making of a Motor.

The motor is preston compatible and will be available soon, either on its own, or as part of our new Hocus Focus Professional system.

Let me know what you think,

Hi James,

We were getting all ready to take the final photos this week, and the laser engraving company spelt receiver wrong on our receiver! Just having some more cases done and will get the photos next week.

Obviously the motor and receiver are total redesigns, however the transmitter is more of an update. The knob itself is new, we have added side pointers and I have reduced the thickness of the body by about 15mm, so its nice and slim now.

Photos will be available soon.
