FAQ: Can Amicus switch spin in the same practice pattern?

All amicus models can switch spin in a practice pattern.

FAQ: Can Amicus throw the ball to bounce on each side of the table (to simulate a table tennis service)? And can it do it with backspin or sidespin?

Yes, it can simulate a serve with different types of spin and even no spin.

Yes, it does.

 External Review for Butterfly Amicus Basic on April 25, 2015
Upgraded from Nerwgy 2050 to this and the difference in real game shot-like production (because of the three spin wheels) and machine quality are hugely improved with this machine. Because trajectory can be controlled on the remote, I have no reason the walk to the other side of the table. I'd have liked to see a countdown option included in the basic version, though (eg, auto stops after 150 balls).
