    Also I did fly jump seat from San Fran-Sydney Quantas 747. That sucked donkey balls.

    In the cockpit? Yes, the jump seats suck. The Captain's seat, however, is very comfortable not to mention the reserved first class seat for crew breaks. :)

    Yup in the cockpit. It blew butt. I was the project manager for Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney and was "commuting" from DFW-Sydney about every 6 weeks. Everything going to Australia was packed/oversold so they just stuck my big ass in the jump seat a few times.

    Can't do that with USA airlines. Only crewmembers and FAA personnel giving check rides are allowed on the jump seats. The rules really tightened up after 9-11.

    Exactly! Stalkers are growing and Dragons in certain areas. I'm more scared of Stalkers in Texas. No dragons here! ( maybe in few municipalities)

    Hey Sarge excited to see the changes. Hope you stay with this as you and Jag seem to be a great team, each bringing different skills. Having said that, totally understand if you step down.

    If the Hybrid heads materialize then will they be offered at significant discount to the early adopters of the current units?

    Not everyone might agree here; (In other words, I don't want to speak for everyone)

    I don't get the impression that Jag42, Sarge, etc. are trying to take advantage of us as a community. I'm personally sure they will take care of us to the extent they are able should a need arise. :)

    Yea, I think they are stand up individuals trying to do the right thing. If you look at ALP the 3rd head is required for Dragon Eye, but that was an existing product on the market that was improved. I do think TMG in this case needs to make right those that have bought systems when their new hybrid head is ready to go. It was a brand new system and reported to jam the DE. It kind of lulls you in with the lower pricing. Sounds like the new head will be firing out of sync with the others to fill in while the others are not firing.

    The existing units do jam DET. No system I am aware jams 100% of every variable of every gun out there. Doesnt exist.
    What the hybrid heads will do is enhance that ability.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 6, 2018, Original Post Date: Dec 6, 2018 ---
    No "trade in" is required nor needed. Works with standard heads. Just stand by but dont think one head will replace th other. Doesnt work that way.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 6, 2018 ---
    Why? Do competitors give you "discounts" on new features and functionality they come out with? BluTooth,GPS, Tx Heads? Did you get big discounts when they came out with those modules/features?

    No but the system worked as advertised so no need for any of the updates unless I choose to use it.

    If it's found that hybrid heads are required to block VPR guns with relability then I would expect a discount since I bought the system with understanding that it blocks all guns with the only one in question being a dragon which I knew. I won't be encountering a dragon hence I didn't care .

    Now if the current heads work well and the only reason for hybrid is to block dragon then I don't care. The same reason I didn't buy TX to block dragon....I don't need it .

    And saying that others didn't offer discounts; well that's fair. They didn't .However except for TX head, everything else you listed was an optional bells and whilwhis that did not impact the core function of why one buys CM...basically blocking guns. Do I need BT, gps or Speaker or App to block guns? No. Hence I dont care that competitors came out with those. Do I need a reliable system that blocks guns except Dragon as it was advertised? Yes.

    What are you talking about? Show me what advertisement your talking about.If your talking about competitors units with the "third head" I got lots of testing data to refute your claim. Lots of independent data.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 6, 2018, Original Post Date: Dec 6, 2018 ---
    ...and if you simply go back a few years to others rolling out their product your claim of "working as advertised" without the third head is blown out of the water. Totally false. Just like others we have to tune/improve to get more coverage....nothing new about that.
    I see you added to your post. Now your talking VPR guns which TMG will/does block but your position of every variable of every scenario on every occasion in every environment just doesnt hold true for anybody. Look around and you will find people with $3500 systems getting hit and pulled over from TSS/Stalker guns. TMG is no different. We all are working to get better and enhance our abilities. Nothing new about that.

    But to folks point of low cost. That is the entire reason the forum members involved in the TMG project have volunteered tons of time/resources and effort to keep TMG the lowest cost alternative out there. We ride the engineers with the feedback we get from these volunteers to produce solutions. But do not ever doubt this is a work in progress from the group involved.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 6, 2018, Original Post Date: Dec 6, 2018 ---
    I think some of you folks think TMG is a company Jag and I started. Could not be further from reality. It started and still is a large group of forum members working with the engineers in Taiwan to produce a reliable lower cost alternative. You should see the work going on right now with other forum members with the power/heads/diodes. It truly is impressive and way past my pay level.
    Again and I stress for the 100th time. I wish the competition all the luck/well thoughts I can muster to kick Fudd's ass. TMG isnt the competitions enemy. FUDD is.TMG is focused and is not going anywhere. We will support the community and continue to improve the product with the guidance and help from members here.
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 6, 2018 ---
    What is just terribly sad to me is this development cannot be totally out in the open but has to be done on private forums etc. because of the childish silly ass bullshit from people who really are clueless what the TMG Project even is.

    I think your efforts are laudable. Everyone must understand that it will never be possible to guarantee 100% protection. With all the best CM's, if you drive fast enough, eventually LEO will get you. This is just an effort to mitigate the risks as much as practical with the bounds of reason.
