Works Well After Setup  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I'm using my rotor with a Pixel receiving loop. After using the setup for a week the rotor stopped turning. Even before that the rotor would be constantly be going out of synchronization. I disassembled the rotor. This is done by removing the black rubber gasket at the top of the unit and then remove the 3/8" cap screws, accessed from the bottom on the rotor. The motor assembly then slips out of the housing. All that has to be done is to adjust the lash (play) adjustment between the motor pinion gear and the rest of the gears. It would bind because there was not enough play. Now the rotor works flawlessly. All these Chinese rotors appear to be the same. The Channel Master units and the NTE. Good luck! 
Product is in production.
