Based on what I’ve read in this thread, it hasn’t started shipping yet. Need to wait a little while longer.

Ya, they are dragging their feet.

I noticed this morning that the date on Tower's site appears to have moved back too...

Consider the fact it was announced by a completely different company than the one actually shipping it.

Hobbico (which announced it) went out of business, Tower got bought by Horizon, and the production pipeline completely restarted. The fact it's about 2-3 months late is pretty understandable then (it was announced as an August delivery originally)

Oh wow, I wasn't aware of all that. I've been under a hobby rock recently (new baby, our first).

Wow...

I have one on backorder, it looks like it's gone from mid November shipping to sometime in January now.

With Horizon that typically means that the first batch is in & shipping, but sold out. You're seeing the ETA on the next batch.

Have had one on backorder for a while as well. Just want it in time for our Club's February Floaters RES series - will have more time this year to fly compared to last - can't wait
