OK, Here's the scoop on the sticks.....
Lynxmotion was bought out by RobotShop., right after I sent my last order for Aurora 9 sticks.
We were contacted by RobotShop to see if we still wanted the parts, and our order is going to be filled by them.
They are on backorder right now.
Here is the web page on their site
I also told them that I would pass this information along as others were interested.
There is another thread on nearly the same line and I will post this info there also.
Hope this helps!
