      This is going to sound dumb but here goes.

      I let a friend of mine see my Earth moon drop and he took it apart. The magnets inside all snapped together and I can't figure out the orientation for putting them back in so there is no slowing effect on the blue slider. Can you someone help me out?

      @Ry Rodriguez: Thanks for your opinion and for being one of the supporters that helped bring the Moondrop to life. As the author and creator of original Moondrop it is a bit hard for me to see so many similar copies of my design. I have put a lot of work in this product and i know that the original product is made with the best quality. I believe that Kickstarter is meant to bring new and unique ideas to life and it is a shame that so many people are using them to make some quick business. Anyhow just wanted to share my thoughts as a creator of the product.

      Got mine. It is almost as good as the one I got for far less, several months earlier from Amazon.

      Hrm. I thought I had left a comment... somewhere? Anyhow, I haven't received mine yet either. I believe there was some flakiness with the Postal Service for a bit, so I suspect that's part of the problem.

      Rob - magnet placement is always the same.
      Lunar has an aluminum slider
      Mars has a copper slider

      So there is no possibility to convert lunar to mars
      But both can be converted to Earth

      My apologies, I should have clarified my last post. I was referring to magnet placement. I am guessing for Earth, you just remove the magnets, but wasn't sure about Mars. Lunar is explained via the post/link, thanks!

      Sorry to be redundant here, but I was under the impression that there were 3 ways to use the magnets, so that you could have Earth, Mars, and Moon gravity simulated, regardless of which you ordered (I ordered Lunar). I did check the post you mentioned and I think it's only for the Moon gravity? Please let me know.

      @Philipp: Thank you for helping with this. The best explanation on ''how to put the magnets back in'' is described on the update you already mentioned: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1303595549/moondrop-fidget-desk-toy-displaying-gravity-on-the/posts/1937648
      @John, @Steven, @Christian: I hope you manage to put back the magnets from the instructions found on update. If you still need any help please send me a direct message and i will provide more info.

      For all with questions on how to put the magnets back in - it is described nicely in update 14:

      Unscrewed the luna and magnets jumped out. Fairly sure I have them back in the correct way but if you can direct message over instructions that would be great. Also, is it the same for mars?

      I am still in marvel over these. They just have this "out of the world feel" to them. It is doing something that it should not be. Cool to play with.

      I have a moon and mars, was just playing with them and noticed an interesting phenomenon. I joined them together side by side without the bases, magnetically connected. With them standing on a table, if I give them a little nudge, they bounce back or otherwise might float around slightly. And this is on a wood desk with no metal components inside or underneath.

      I assume the effect is related to the same principle that makes the sliders drop slowly but not really sure. And it only happens when the two are magnetically connected side-by-side, if I separate them it doesn't do it. Regardless, it's pretty cool.

      @Timothy: Thank you, we thought alot about the packaging design to make it look good and avoid any possible shipping damage.
      @Rajesh: Your Moondrop was sent out in the first batch which is quite ago. I just checked your package tracking and it shows that it has been delivered to you already in July. I also contacted you on private message with more details so let's continue our conversation there.
      @All- if anyone else have yet to receive their package or want to know about the tracking status please contact me directly via private message. Best regards!

      Hey, could you please send me the instructions as well. I removed the 'mars' magnets to play with earth gravity, and forget how they went in properly. Thanks!

      So... why does my moondrop earth fall more slowly than the moondrop Mars? Do I just need to remove the magnets?
