"Dragonfly" my version of the Atari 7800 SD cartridge

Recommended Posts

I'm selling my Dragonfly if anyone is interested.

 

Burgundy (red), Pokey Max, YM2151 module, and 5.5/2.1 plug cable.

 

I'm in the UK but will post to Europe or the US on the understanding that all shipping fees will be paid by the buyer, and I won't be responsible for any customs fees / taxes that may be levied.

 

PM me if interested.

I'm sorry for a long absence, but the last months were not too kind to me :(

 

For today, Pokeymax modules are not available. 

To produce dragonfly there are shortage displays, but probably I could adjust another model. Unfortunately, the prices of electronic parts that I use increased by 30-60%, so the price of a cartridge would be more half. :( 

As long as the situation with parts does not improve, I do not see the meaning of further production

I'm sorry to hear of this, Rafal. Unfortunately it's too common a story. :(

 

Take care of yourself first, think about hobby stuff second. Wishing you a better turn of luck in this new year.

Thanks for the nice words, as you write - may this year be better.  :)


The end of the year was bad, in October there was a car accident, in November an accident with a circular saw (three toes were injured, they had to be fastened with knitting needles), in December my daughter was seriously poisoned with carbon monoxide.
I am on sick leave until the end of January.

Just saw this. Sorry to hear. Hope you are healing well quickly. Also hope your daughter is better.

Sorry to hear about all the difficult things you and family have gone through. I hope 2022 is nothing but great things for you!

 

I use your DragonFly cart on the ZPH show all the time and it's nothing short of amazing and plays everything I've thrown at it. Thank you so much for making this incredible piece of hardware, I don't know what I'd do without it! I hope you're able to continue to create them in the future for more people when things get better. Even if it costs 60% more it's still worth it for everything it's able to achieve on the 7800 and do for the homebrew community!

Just came across reading this today, how awful, that is a very rough stretch :(

 

Please take care.. hoping you have a much happier and fortunate year.

Not that this device needs any further recommendations, but I do highly recommend it. 🙂

On the Dragonfly preorder topic, a few people tried to pre-order after they were no longer available. Tagging them now to make sure they see this offer:

 

@Wessyman

@juanluma01

@adamchevy

@Hydro Thunder

@SiLic0ne t0aD

@Davetron

 

@Karl G This is one of the coolest things I've seen someone do in these forums in sometime! Thank you for thinking of those as they very well might have missed this otherwise. I do hope some of them are able to respond to RJ and get one for use. My DF cart is pretty much always attached to my 7800 these days since it plays everything I've thrown at it without issue for me!

I hope things are improving for you. I know I’m late to this, but I’m interested in one if you still have any, or I’m willing to be on a waitlist if you plan to make any in the future.
