Like the canopies, watched the videos last night before the thread was started, wondering when the V949 thread would start. Like the light location and design. Wished I would have waited for this instead of V939. I assume flight is identical to V929 with new flip button on right top added? Or is this button for lights on/off toggle as reported previously?

Maybe V939 goes to son (if it ever gets here - day 29), and I order this one. Then we'll have a pair.

I think some places have it in stock now.

My friends and I have v949 back ordered since the beginning. It hasn't shipped for us thus yet.

I top right button on the v949 is for turning on and off the lights.

Did I read somewhere the flipping may not be automatic anymore? Or am I delusional and wishful?

After i pay my v949 the next day the website change the preorder status to available but after a wile change for backorder. Looks like the first bage was not enough to cover all preorders mine is in backorder.

Banggood's shipping doesn't make sense. We got a friend that ordered a week or two after us. And his got shipped on the 19th.

The other orders before his hasn't shipped yet.

Did they fulfill the orders in the wrong order? Latest orders got shipped. While those who ordered first didn't get theirs fulfill? Wierd huh?

The multiple flips sounds good. I'll flesh that out once the v949 arrives.

That is what happened on V939s, but they didn't stay in back order status very long, maybe a few days.
