Tried it out and did not work at all. Called company, they tried to help but to no avail. Offered to fix if I sent back. I opened it up (that's a no-no) but found the main fuse had blown. Put a new one in and works fine.

This has been a great experience. It's expensive and time consuming...but well worth it. I spent many hours in my brothers garage "bonding" with family and friends.... and that my friends, is priceless.
