    Guys, the technical resolution for the turbo head have been resolved. BUT it's time intensive which is prohibitive for me to complete in a timely maner (1-2 months).

    I would like to send all remaining turbo head order a credit or partial refund.
    I will be contacting you individually thru PM/PPemail within the next couple days.

    If you believe I owe you something and was not contacted by Wednesday, please send me an email.

    Sorry for the long wait and inconvenience. I'll try to pick things back up during xmas week.

    LEDcandle :PM sent.

    So does that mean the turbo head will exist for those patient enough to keep checking back around xmas or so?

    Has anyone heard from Jonathan (modamag) lately? After seeing his update above, i waited until last wed. and sent him a email (I'm one of the folks with a turbo head on order). When I didn't hear back, I also followed up with a PM. I'm willing to continue to be patient, but I would like to get an update on what is happening with my order.

    I sent him a PM as well a while back but sometimes he is very swamped! I am sure we will hear from him soon...

    We had some correspondence some time last week.

    Jon, the drake arrived and WOW!! It's every bit what people say it is. Small, well-made, bright and really special. I hope to take some nice pics of it in the near future.

    The high mode seems to draw about 400+ma (couldn't get a really fixed reading due to fat DMM leads), which is like 4C of the poor 90mah 10180. Would running it for even 1-2mins be any risk?

    It gets hot real fast on high (as expected), but with the hand as the heatsink, it probably can go several mins. The only concern is the battery strain.

    The low is nice and low and the user setting leaves me spoilt for choice for the medium. Fantastic light! Every part of it.

    I have a question: given that GoldServe does not longer produce the FluPic, where does Jonathan obtain those from?

    Read post #62 in this thread by Goldserve. Also, you might want to read this thread posted by Bogus1 for further availablility of the FluPic.

    Cuso, please don`t tease CPF memebers about there being a FluPic fairy! Lets keep that one our little secret, OK? I am a believer!

    $20 upgrade charge. Tint is not great, but, the Q5 is bright. Jonathan did the upgrade on my AlTin Draco. Was it worth it? Depends, but, I am glad I did it. This way, I will be satisfied for a year, then, I can go straight to an S-Bin upgrade.

    Modamag, do you have any dracos in stock?

    I like the color of the Ti light with the ALTiN coating but thinking aluminum would be a better choice because of heat conductivity which seems to be an important issue in such a small light(a quick look online states that 6AL-4V has a heat conductivity an order of magnitude lower then 6061-T6, yikes). Are there any plans to offer a different coating for the AA6061?

    Anyone, how does the chrome hold up when banging against keys in your pocket? Will it chip off if the light is dropped or will there just be localized damage (like HAIII).

    Anyway sweet light.

    Just curious - did anyone with Turbohead orders (or other pending orders) hear anything from Jonathan? I've tried to contact him several times and have not received any response at all. It doesn't look like he has checked in here since his last messsage. I hope everything is o.k. . . .

    I´ve tried PM and Mail myself but he seems to be preoccupied with other stuff.. perhaps he will work his way back and answer us all soon.

    At least I hope so....

    He also said he would be contacting folks, and to send an email if we didn't hear from him. I guess I thought that implied he would respond to at least provide status.

    Yes - i also emailed with no reply -might have been a bit late and missed him.
    Christmas is not far away.
    He would have good reason for not replying.

    Maybe I'll try again, because he hasn't answered any of my messages.

    [update: he did answer my message this time, so it appears he is alive and well]

    i'm a little late to the party but i'm happy to report that modamag is alive and was able to sacrifice time out of his busy schedule to send over one of his masterpieces.

    the fit and finish are excellent and the altin coating is eye catching.
