*SCAM ALERT* neoBOX open source Focbox variant (HW 4 and HW6 Design)

This thread is primarily dedicated to the creation of the neoBOXES v4 and V6. The v6 Dual and Jeff’s own upcoming 20s ESC are included as well.

Huge thanks to @jeffwuneo for spending precious time and money on this project and putting up with all of our questions and @BillGordon for donating 2 Foxboxes.

Thanks to @wandagoner for the being the main contributer of the folding recap seen below.

Always remember : Jeff does this in his free time. He is really passionate about his projects and we all appreciate that!



To summarize the Topic :

@jeffwuneo is working on (4) different ESC variants to be released in the near future. https://focbox.com/ . These efforts began Nov2019. No devices have been released for community testing or GA at this time but we are very close.

PRICES :

The v4 Hardware costs 80$ (+shipping)
The v6 Hardware costs 120$ (+shipping)

REMEMBER : The neoBoxes are NEW and need testing. People who bought these test units should use them in their builds as soon as possible, not in 5 months. DO not buy them if don’t have anything to contribute in this Test phase, wait for the final batch. Report bugs, Film your build, record your telemetry and create a comprehensive “Review”. We need every bit of data we could get.

Order.

This is for second batch of neoBOX, can purchasing online for shipment April 2020.

Broken ESC?

If you break your ESC in the testing phase you get a free replacement.
All you need to do is ship the ESC to one of Jeffs Warehouses in the EU or US at your own expense. The Warehouse then ships it back to china and you’ll receive a new one at Jeffs expense.
Not sure how returns are handled for people outside the EU/US maybe shipping it directly to china (I’ll ask Jeff about that)

We have yet to talk about the “warranty” for the finished products.

We make car part for job. My factory only make good product.

My experience is that many of the factories that promise quality products, deliver that for the first few batches.

Then something happens and quality decreases little by little or even drastically.

In not saying you are one of them, I’m just hoping you’re not one of them. :four_leaf_clover:
