It depends on how confident they are on the quality of there own products to extend the warranty's to 1 year. Otherwise I won't bother thinking about buying it
Novak--4 months
Tekin---4months
Castle--1 year

We will be publicly announcing it Oct 22, in conjunction with the Chicago show.

Not exactly sure how the preliminary info has already leaked out.....

Our understanding was that this information would be embargoed until the Chicago show. Our understanding was, apparently, incorrect.

Additionally, we have not seen the magazine. Perhaps it is in the mail.

Any of you attending the show, please stop by our booth. We will have the Kinetic flyers in the booth.

I saw it in the magazine. Looks like a Sidewinder with orange and a sensor port on it. The new NovakLink looks just like a Castlelink too.
Im not saying anything negative by that, but its the best description I can think of.

Don't think this info getting out early is gonna hurt you any. IMO it might get you a little more intrest at the show. Might get some "big orange" haters to stop at your booth who might not otherwise.

I have the print-out of the "Inside Scoop" page from RCCA, so I know what forum members are commenting on.

When the sensor plug "falls out" the speed control shuts off. Our Ballistic motors have a silicon gasket in the sensor port that allows the harness to fit snugly. The Kinetic is a sensored controller.
