LOL! Yeah, I have already been bombarded. We have over 500 backordered in our shopping cart system, which means we probably have thousands of people waiting to by them. We only have a few hundred at most sitting here unassembled. We do the end/top pin assembly, antenna assembly, programming, labeling, testing, all here in house.

Backorder? Didn't know there was a way, all I see is a "Notify when back In stock".

The site isn't very up-to-date. Maybe all the orders became back orders and then they put up: "Notify when back In stock"

I've pretty much concluded that I have to decide on great customer service or a great product because I can't have both. I had a lot of issues with my Spek equipment, but they always had great customer service and an awesome website.

Will the 900Mhz receivers be out in time for Xmas?

I hope there will be a price break for all of us who have waited for receivers. Jumping ship to another brand (because of no product available) has been tempting. Swapping Rx's between planes because there is none available is a pain!

if you click on the'notify when back in stock', a window pops up asking for your e-mail address.
if in doubt, click on everything!
experimentation is the word.
in some cases you get a squeal in others a slap on the face.

I did that awhile back, I thought he was talking about actually taking backorders.

So Jim, assuming you need to go to a different CPU for the 9-12ch RXs, is that a "back to the drawing board" deal or a matter of substituting a component and putting into beta. What I'm really asking is - what do you believe the new ETA is for the 9-12. Thanks.

The CPU change just requires testing of the new CPU to make sure there are no timing issues (or reboot issues like what we just went through).
