We appreciate your patience as we have had to work through some very unfortunate and unforeseen manufacturing issues with this model.
We received the new PCBs for both the controller and drone and completed assembly, however, the final quality control inspection and testing over the past week and a half at the factory reported a very high and unacceptable margin of defective units once again.
Since we have now assembled this batch twice and have experienced different problems each time (connectivity issue the first time, stabilization and flight issues this time) we are scrapping the internal components and having all brand new ones manufactured, not repaired.
Unfortunately, this means we need to begin production again :(
We have always taken great pride in our ability to deliver the highest quality product in a timely manner with our previous crowdfunding campaigns, in order to make sure that the quality is acceptable we unfortunately have to sacrifice more time.
We know this will be a disappointment to many of you and we apologize for the delays and inconvenience, but as our backers we know you will want us to deliver the BEST product we can, and we will.
The new anticipated timeline for shipping has been pushed back to October and we will keep you updated of any changes along the way between now and then.
We know that this second delay may bring up the need for many of you to change the shipping addresses for your perks, we ask that you wait until we have completed production (again) and testing, at which point we will update you that everything is ready to ship. At that point, we will send you instructions on how to quickly update your shipping address in your BackerKit just before we begin shipping so we have the most up-to-date address for your perks.
We apologize again for the additional delays and we hope you will be understanding and supportive that we only want to ensure you receive the highest quality final product.
