Rcom Pro 10 Incubator - new model from Rcom- Pics added

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I got a new model called a pro 10.  It's kind of dome shaped and holds 10 regular eggs or more smaller ones.  Auto temperature.  Auto humidity-except my house humidity is 50% and I have this incubator set for 30%, and I can't get it lower than 45%.  But that's normal.  It also has a setting for how much to turn the egg around and how often.  It has a built in candler that is great.  It counts the day according to what kind of bird.

 

The thing I like the best is that the temperature is rock solid unwavering.  And if you open the lid and close it, it recovers right away.  I have a 1588 styrofoam that's great ,but used with only 12 eggs, I can't get a steady temperature.  

 

I paid $219.00 and free shipping purchasing thru the company, and it seems no one can match their prices of any of their incubators.  

 

Pictures to follow tomorrow.

It sounds great, hope you have good hatches with it. How does the in built candler work?

The candler is really great.  Here's some pics.  I do not work for rcom, nor do my relatives, nor do I own any stock in rcom.

Hi Seminolewind. I'm thinking of getting the Rcom Pro 10 incubator and was just wondering how you're finding it a few weeks in?

post #8 of 9

I got my new RCOM10 Pro+ about 10 days ago.  I set my chicken eggs about a week ago and the incubator is holding temperature & humidity perfectly.  I am really happy with it and it has a built in egg candler that has a super strong light.  No problem seeing inside the eggs and just last night I can already see the red blood veins in the eggs.  The incubator has many more features than I will ever use and that are explained in a pretty good user manual.  I say pretty good user manual becasue it could have better written instructions but I could figure out everything after re-reading a few sections and one telephone call into the company I purchased it from who was very helpful.  So far, so good and I will report back after my hopefully good hatch.  (fingers crossed).  I found a really good price from KEMPS incubators.

I just purchased the Rcom pro 10 from Rcom.  It only cost me $179.00 and free shipping.  I can't figure out how to set it for the  turning or the angling.  Everything else as far as I know or seen is on the money and that's factory settings.  It could be doing it job but I don't really see anything.  Any help would be appreciated .  Thanks
