Just been on the phone to aerotech. Both my proballs are broken at the moment - think it's a battery problem frown

They normally charge 30 to fix them, but for 37 I can choose any two colours and get brand new balls.

This make me very happy smile

Posted:I've visited the site, but one things not clear- do they still stock the 'strobeballs' (one colour, strobing at 50 Hz, no programmability).

All I can find are the standard glo-balls, and the programable ones.

I had a set of strobeballs years back and they were excellent, I prefer them to programmables.

Posted:The stroballs are just proballs with stuff turned off. Exactly the same electronics and they even have two coloured led it's just restricted to one color and some menus are disabled.

Posted:I think they have stopped selling the Stroballs. I guess they thought, why would people want one strobing colour, when they can have two, with the option to turn one off or not...

which never made much sense to me... because apart from the batteries, you really dont have anything heavy in them.. And I know MUCH lighter prototypes can be made.. and lighter portotypes one would think, wouldnt be as destructive to them (or others) when they collide... shrug
