Mike tends to be overly optimistic on these timings, the schematic and PCB layout are not even finished yet. Lets say I deliver the pcb design in a week... then there is 4 weeks to get prototypes manufactured, then a week to get prototypes to dennis for doing the software, assuming the completely new design and completely new rf module are all good and working as expected, it'll take him a week to verify and modify the microrx code for the new rx, (7 weeks out now), then we need to get volume pcbs manufactured and some stock level built up (4-8 weeks). Products take about 3-4 months to get from end of design to ready to go. We're not at end of design yet.
My bet is more like April or May - assuming we dont need any major pcb changes, and our manufacturers, assemblers and component supply chain all run smoothly - so ready for summer next year. As I said... don't hold any projects off waiting for it.
