Hi...any feedback regarding this great prop? I heard the first batch of remote boards had problems...is this true?

Im planning to get one...a used board most probably from the first batch Smile

Thanks

Wanlu it wasn't our remote boards that had a problem, it was only the external charger we used. They sometimes failed to charge so we replaced them with a better one. It was a part we bought from a supplier. However the board has been through 3 or 4 revisions. Now the charging unit is built in, and uses an adapter that plugs in to the power to recharge. Ax

I just realized, its a prop that hits two birds with one stone Smile

A new Magic prop for my Magic Act and a new Vent character for my Vent Act.

I have been using the manual board for several years but the remote thing is pretty exciting Smile

Wanlu, you are going to love it! It's a different way of working on stage than with the manual board. Don't simply do your manual board routine word for word. Now that you're not attached to the board, let your imagination run wild. Your audience will be thrilled!

Ha! We usually recommend more practice than that, but you are a fast learner. It helps having the manual board, so you know all the moves needed to sell the illusion. Great to hear..."reaction was wild" are my 3 favorite words! Well.... and "I love you" from Suzi! : )

Hi Steve,

The remote board is so easy to manipulate for a look no look routine Smile as for ventriloquism, Im still working on the speed of the mouth, I did not take a risk by using it in a vent routine immediately...I know it will take a few practise to be able to use it as a vent prop Smile

In any case, I love it... Smile

Thanks

I don't see any problem with the remote board when used in a Vent routine...it needs practise just like any other figure/puppet or prop Smile

Now that Ive used it several times already in a look-no look routine...the remote board is without a doubt a great magical prop Smile

But as for a vent routine with a dialogue...it will take practise just like any other prop Smile I have seen Kimmo and Magic Dave with the remote board and they both did an equally great job Smile

In my case however, who plans to lessen the magic stuff and add more vent routines...I might end up selling the remote board and buy a new figure instead Smile

You can have it at $1000 shipping included Smile

Hurry before I change my mind Smile Smile Smile
