    Does sound interesting. But I suspect with only an 8m range, it probably won't be able to hit the shuttle very hard/high.

    Still, I'm sure it can be useful as a practicing aid. May be you could Email the company and ask if they have a video of it in action?

    I can't open the video... it asks to put an EXE file on my computer which I'm not happy about doing...

    Can it be posted on say youtube or something?

    Agreed, I don't feel like trusting a download like this, it shouldn't be a Exe it should be a mp4, or a video file extension. Please upload it on YouTube for us.

    The thing is, people still won't trust it.

    I'm with Cheung, it doesn't look very durable to last.

    i wonder if you remove the plastic panda look and just see the inside, might change you mind?

    i was put off by the look at first, but it is probably the cheapest badminton feeder i've found so far...

    I doubt just seeing past the Panda would change my mind. What would change my mind is a reliable review by someone who has used it over a period of time and can break down the strengths and weaknesses of the unit along with a list of what parts are replaceable and/or common.

    Are you thinking of taking the risk and buying one?

    I guess, everything is possible in China! A $5000 feeding machine weighing almost 40kg and size of a human, turned to $250 machine, weighing approximately 4kg at the size of baby panda!! Too bad it has no certification from Yonex or Victor or Lining! Or else the machine would sell out like a hot cake worldwide. There's a famous saying in almost every street vendor in China "you get what you pay for"! So, i guess this little feeder panda would last (if lucky) until the 500th shuttles thrown or the worst, it broke during the shipping! Still, this idea deserves some applauses for badminton fans! I bet none ever thought or even think it is possible to have a cutie feeder...at the reachable prices!
