    Hey guys, I'm very excited to offer my floating Marksman-H combat training remote (Jedi Training Remote) for $629 USD + shipping each.
    See here for price change information. Limited Run - Floating Marksman-H Jedi Training Remote
    Each one is hand made to order and comes fully finished with a magnetic base. Not only are these extremely accurate, and even more accurate than the Master Replicas version, but they actually hover in mid air and light up wirelessly and without any batteries! Please note that this is a very limited edition. I do not know how many I will do, but I won't be taking any pre-payments, deposits, or anything that makes me feel like I have to hurry.

    Instead, I'm doing a waiting list here so that people are not fighting over them like when I was listing them one at a time on Etsy.
    I'm working down the list at a good pace but the list is still growing (Thanks guys!) so if you want an idea on how long it could be before I get to you, just estimate that each one above your name will take 2 weeks, with maybe a break in between builds here and there. It will most likely happen a bit faster than that but that should give you a safe estimate of how long you might be waiting. When I get to your name, I'll take payment and make it specially for you just like I have been, asking you questions, getting your preferences and feedback, sending you progress pictures of your build, etc. I will continue making these as long as it is enjoyable for me so as the list gets longer and longer, I cannot guarantee that everyone will get one. I'm just making sure you all know that ahead of time.

    I'll take names down in the order that you post interest in this thread. Please do not ask to be added to the list unless you are serious and have money set aside. I'm not taking trades, I don't do payment options, financing, layaway, complicated back and forth, etc. :). You buy one, I'll make you one. easy peasy. Of course I understand that things happen so if you need to back out, please let me know. Make sure you have notifications turned on in your account settings up so that when I PM you, you get an alert. I have a feeling that the longer the list gets, the more people will back out or not respond because they won't monitor the thread or come to the forum that often to see they had a missed message from me.

    !INTERNATIONAL BUYERS!
    I have decided to allow international orders under certain conditions. For those of you outside the US please understand that I cannot guarantee the power adapter will work or if the base will be compatible with different countries' voltages. If you are outside the US, joining the waiting list means you accept full responsibility for any compatibility issues, and willingly pay for all shipping, VAT, and customs fees. I will not lie on customs forms to reduce the value of the item or split it up into small payments so please don't ask. Being truthful on the declaration form is for my protection as much as it is for yours in the event your shipment is lost or damaged and I have been burned quite badly in the past for doing that. I do not wish to go through that again.

    Here's a video tutorial on floating the remote.


    Here's a link to a cheap / decent battery backup power supply in case you lose power.

    Thanks for the interest guys. I've updated the list.
    Please keep in mind that this is NOT a signup list in the sense that I'm making a bunch of these and will start shipping them soon. This is a WAIT list, in the sense that I'm doing these one at a time as I can and that this is the order in which I'll contact you to let you know when I'm ready to work on yours and take payment.
    That means, for you people that just expressed interest, you'll be waiting 15-30 weeks if each one takes one to two weeks and everyone on the list pays when it's their turn.

    I just have to make sure everyone's clear on that. This is why I was hesitant to do a list in the first place, as it starts backing up until it's too long to even predict if I'll be able to ever get to everyone, whereas if I just make one when I can, there's no pressure. Each way has it's pros and cons I guess.

    Side note, I'm working on #007 and as soon as it quits raining I'll be able to finish painting it and get it out the door.

    Guys, trents got these things dialed into perfection... I’ve seen these greeblies up close

    There’s no word that I can find to describe it...

    This build is complete genius... your not going to find anyone else who would put the time in like trent to get it done with a level of accuracy like him

    I’ve seen what is involved in making this happen, he’s working like a mad man with his real life job, then pumping these bad boys out of his printer, geographically mapping out every single greeblie, paint, reverse engineering electromagnetism, assembly...

    Let’s not forget he’s also making message drives, solo keys.. and doesn’t he have a set of stencils for a sonicscrewer? Or was it a light saber.. I forgot :/

    He’s a legit machine!!

    I would like to get on the list. I understand that it MAY be a while before you get to my position on the list, if you ever do. I also understand that I will be ready with the funds if/when you get to my position on the list. Would it be possible to be #23, please?

    The square base is definitely easier. I've got it down to about 5 seconds to float it.

    Can you use something like an inverted bottle cap for the remote to sit in, and would turning the unit on simply lift the magnet?

    no, i definitely do not recommend that. It would surely crash the remote, and scratch it up as well as the base.

    Here's the "official" tutorial on how to properly balance it.
    It's not hard once you figure it out.

    Great video. I really like the Falcon theme of the base and think it would be a fantastic option, especially on the square base. Possible?

    Pumping these things out! Do you have droid labor laws in Texas? Up here in mass we got to pay them minimum wage now, insurance and 401k...

    Should have just stuck with illegals, these droids think they have rights or something. What is this world coming to
