What is the ITS Reel?
The ITS is the most technically advanced Invisible Thread system ever offered! This system consists of two motor pods that house the motorized reels of invisible thread, and an amazing new remote control that fits in the palm of your hand and controls the two reels wirelessly! Yes, I said NO WIRES! This means that you can set up your ITS in situations that were previously too difficult or too time consuming for your show! Also, remember that this is for INVISIBLE thread, so you can be even closer to your audience than ever before!
Why do I need the ITS?
Have you ever wanted to perform the classic Blackstone routine, or most any flying hanky moves across a stage or room, but just didn't want to set up a big annoying backdrop? Or have you wanted to move a light weight object at your command? Then you need the ITS! With the ITS all the control is in the palm of your hand! The ITS Remote Controller allows you to control the 2 motor pods simultaneously or independently! You can easily control the speed of the motors and stop and start the motors. You can also work the motors LIVE or with a program! And Remember, there are NO WIRES coming from the hand held remote to the motor pods! ITS REEL MAGIC!
What is Perfect Tension Technology?
The ITS Reel system has our exclusive Perfect Tension Technology. What is perfect tension technology? In a nutshell this means normally when you are using electronic invisible thread reels, the biggest drawback is the batteries they use. Some of them use AAA batteries and there's a few out there that use watch style batteries. The drawback to this is that your thread tension always changes depending on battery life. If you put a fresh battery in your unit it will work very well for a little amount of time and then slowly, as the battery begins to drain its power, the tension changes and becomes much weaker. This dramatically affects your invisible thread animations. With Perfect Tension Technology this problem has been eliminated! Each ITS Reel units have a built in computer that insures that the motor always gets the same power. Meaning that your thread tension will always be perfect regardless of battery life! This is quantum leaps ahead of all electronic invisible thread reels!
How Do You Power The ITS?
ITS Reel uses the latest LiPo battery technology! Your ITS will come with 6 rechargeable LiPo Batteries. What does this mean for you? Well, this means that you no longer need to purchase countless batteries only to use them and throw them away! LiPo batteries can be recharged many many times and each charge gives you several performances! You can even recharge your LiPo batteries using the built in charger in your ITS Reels! Extra batteries can be purchased from RC stores or directly from us.
How is ITS different from PTS Junior?
Several years ago, I released the PTS Junior. The PTS Junior used 2 motors that were connected by wires to the PTS Junior Controller. The PTS Junior uses a strong nylon thread and is great for flying a hanky across a stage or out over an audience. The PTS Junior is programmable with speed control for the motors. While the ITS serves the same basic purpose as PTS Junior, there are 2 very important differences! For one this the ITS is WIRELESS!!! That's right. No more cables!!! There are no cables coming from the ITS hand held Remote Controller to the Motor Pods! The second difference is that the ITS is for INVISIBLE THREAD. This opens up many possibilities not available with the PTS Junior! Just look at the difference in the size of the controllers!
