Hi Everyone!!! (Orbits video)
« on: July 04, 2009, 10:33:18 PM »

Hi everyone. Thanks ta0 for this forum. I was very sad when went down. Anyways glad to see that the world still spins and so do we ;) Anyways here's another video if anyone cares to see, . It's all orbits. Also I am using a newly modified top in this video. I took the bearings out of my Quicksilver (they didn't spin well anyways) and I replaced it with a spintastics fixed tip. Also I fitted a trompo grande cap instead of the cap on the quicksilver. It plays awesome. So hopefully you all enjoy the video. Thanks again ta0 for the forum. Happy 4th everyone.

Great Orbits!

Undeniable regens!

You went for about 4 minutes 38 seconds with the full orbits (magnetic wire)! At 35 orbits/minute that's about 162.
And you had about 2 minutes 15 seconds of right half-orbits. At 80 orbits/minute that's about 180.

Thanks for the video.

Great regens. I use the same QS tuning and the quality of playing raise a lot.

I tuned too the tip and the apical area of the body. Next day I'll post it. Now I am far from the main computer. (In the mountains typing the iphone) ;-)

Glad to see the new video--and hear the sweet DMB track!  Keep 'em comming.

Also glad the trompo cap is working for you!
