We expected them to available already, but there is a problem with reliability that may be due to hardware problem with the new CPU. I am not sure where the problem actually lies yet.

We may release our backup Nanos in the interim. We try to keep a few hundred extras of each product for repair/replacement, but we really haven't had to use many of those so we could sell them off.

Please put me down for 4 if you decide to sell. Thanks.

I vote for selling them... I'd love a half dozen of them, I know a couple of friends in need also...

I would like to get a few as well to try as I have been using the 8 and 10 channel Rxs.

I hope the new receivers come out soon. I really don't want to be tempted again by all of those Spektrum receivers I ripped out of my models because I'm building stuff I can't fly.

A little updating of the website would go a long way towards restoring confidence.

There is nothing to update on the website. Because of the problem with the new Nano, we will be releasing the extras we have, and may even go back to the original version for more production.

Are you having the same issues with the 9-12-16 channel RXs?

If they all use the same CPU it is possible the problem would exist in the 9-12-16 channel RX's also. Wonder if the new CPU chip has its problems because of a bad lot or something inherent?

It is unfortunate that all the info is coming through a third party server because just when some information of any use gets out there, the thread is shut down.

Inherent. An Errata was issued describing the problem with no work around (of course after we went to production). It doesn't seem to affect all parts the same way, which is why I only saw this issue once during testing. I changed the CPU and the problem went away so I figured that it was just a bad CPU. So, we will go back to the original CPU for the Nano, and a different CPU for the 9/12 receivers.

there are dangers in using brand new or newly modify anything. it pays to wait a while and let other suckers find the bugs. this happens in all aspects of life. that is why there are so many divorces of young couples.
