ProtoThrottle Update (June 17, 2018)
The final face plates, with lettering engraved, arrived Friday and all the assembled ProtoThrottle circuit boards came in last week. Nathan and I also spent a fun weekend building all the receiver boards we need (and more). With that, everything is in place to begin final assembly of the throttles, testing, packaging, and yes, eventually, shipping!
ProtoThrottle Update (May 26, 2018)
Just wanted to give a quick update on the ProtoThrottle… The face plates have been machined and anodized. They are currently awaiting one last machining step to engrave the lettering. The assembled circuit boards have also started to arrive and all the other pieces to make the throttles are ordered and (mostly) in hand. We’re still aiming to start shipping around the end of June in the order that pre-orders were received.
ProtoThrottle Pre-Orders Closing Soon!
After Monday, April 30, ProtoThrottle pre-orders – at the discounted price – will no longer be accepted while the initial manufacturing run is in progress. The throttle will again be available for purchase starting approximately late July. We have extended the pre-order deadline until April 30 to accommodate ProRail participants who will have a demo throttle available for review.
If you are considering purchasing a ProtoThrottle, don’t delay. The ProtoThrottle is the most realistic wireless diesel controller on the market. And from what our beta testers and reviewers are saying, the throttle truly does put you “in the cab”.
