It's likely, seems to be his MO. If I was 2M, this would seriously concern me.

I have been hearing that the Mustang, takes to long to build and China would be the answer.

The servo is so simple, that could be done easily. Ship a printhead control panel there to have it reverse engineered, no problem. But I think like you've seen with the Printex, getting the press to do everything you want it to do when you press a particular button is not as easy as reverse engineering it. The servo board isn't so complicated that it can't be done either, but I think the software and overall electrical engineering behind the 2M is unique in that one guy has done most all of it. I'm not saying it's something that is overly complicated that you couldn't duplicate it, but you'd almost need the guy behind it to decipher it all and show you how he did it.

Robert was involved in getting the M&R cloned...I think it's been a failure so far and now we see pics of a freaking Printex being copied, I don't put anything past him to try and do it. If he really did engineer the Falcon, why isn't he trying to get it cloned?

Good point Alan. It seems the Falcon is a pretty good press that has endured the years although overpriced.

I think Phineas and Ferb would do a better job than RWB and the China gang.

Every one honestly believe Robert designed the Falcon? Just because he said he did? Uh no he paid people to do it.

Exactly. But how many can you replicate? I wouldn't trust too much after the Printex turning up there merged into the gauntlet.

I have had the story told to me (by people who would know), and it's more believable that way for sure.

I sure as hell don't. I thought he swooped in like a buzzard when the project was pretty much done. My comment was more tongue in cheek than anything. At the time he supposedly did the Falcon, he had as much business designing an automatic as I do right now, which isn't much.
