Just got mine in the mail. I have had a jupiter 3s sitting on a shelf waiting watching and waiting for the day it could live up to its true potential. Today is that day. My ears were complaining about my smile being up in their space.
Thank you for all the work you put into this luke congratulations are in order for you and the team. Overall an amazing blaster at a very reasonable price given its featureset and performance. knowing this shots 10 a second and best nerf can do is 8 just kinda puts things into perspective. The future seems to be 3d custom blasters at least in the enthusiast space. There is even extra room in the battery compartment for a lipo alarm and the chonky one with the readout screen and 2 beepers at that. Cant wait to get this thing out to some games. Jupiter was meant to have a pac. The name is very accurate you do feel very much like a ghost buster while using it.
This thing changes the dynamic of any Nerf squad. Mines attached to a Khaos w Kraken feed motor and a 2k rounds hopper. It absolutely rips.
Planning on buying a second Proton
Had 1 issue with vacuum and Luke replaced the whole unit in under a week.
Ordered pre assembled, arrived in a week.
Literally could play w it 10 mins after arrival.
Customer service is tops.
Highly, highly recommend this product.
This is by far the coolest 3d printed gadget I own. All the rounds you can let out in seconds. Again super cool.
What a fun fun fun project. Build was not too bad at all thanks to the amazing step by step videos. Loved the one on tuning it as well, I needed that when I was done to really get it working. And Luke, you apologize in the video for including every single bit of the build, but I have to say, it's my favourite thing about your videos for a novice. I am one of those who wants the option to see it all, so thank you very much.
I had some trouble getting the agitator to seat as low as the video said it should be sitting (I have way more than 1.5mm of clearance between it and the balls), maybe pushing harder would have done the trick but I didn't want to break anything, and it performed super well so I left it. Again, this is probably my fault.
I have built two Jupiters (one for me and one with my step-son), and now one Proton Pack and I don't know that I could recommend a better and more supported set of impressive but completely doable kits to make you feel like you're a real modder :)
Works insanely well, and was easy to put together!
