    They certainly have a busy few weeks ahead of them at Flex.  It will be worth it, for sure.

    Looks like some under a thousand of them there. That should keep someone busy for a while. Back up the Brinks truck, it's just about time for the first tranche... <GGG>.

    Which will ship first?  My Maestro or new Flex 15000.  

    And Happy Birthday Gerald.  I have to wait until May 9 for my present either way.

    Yes, that is why we took pre-orders. We had already built 100 before this one. There won't be many left after the pre-orders ship though. We have started ordering the long lead items for the next run.

    This is no C section so I can't give you the day and hour.  I can say we are in labor.  This is the second run since the first run went to alpha test and internal use. The SN sequence is random.

    I wonder how many are there and how many pre orders there were.  I'm still hoping for one more week.

    I count 750 PWBs.
  • Dave - W6OVPDave - W6OVP Member ✭✭
    edited December 2016
    30 x 30  =  900  + 100 earlier = 1,000  ???     900 x $1,000  =  A welcome infusion no doubt...<G>.

    assuming there are 25 per row, about 750 are there if it's single board Maestro

    My Maestro should be in the early pre order, since I made my deposit on Monday after Dayton.

    If anyone in the back of the list would like to take my place for their; I am willing to give my place in line for yours.
    My reason: I have not been able to put an antenna up due to weather (rain/temp), help, and so many beautiful things to do and see in Amelia Island, Florida. My Flex-6700 has been boxed in a closet for more than a year.
    If you like to trade places; providing that FRS would allow it: I will be more than happy to help you get your Maestro earlier. Since, I do not have a use for it at this time.
    Drop me a line and let's see if it can be done.
    But, here is the catch!
    You must tell us why here in the forum. And the members will help me make the decision by voting for the winner.

    They are still coming off the SMT machine at the time of the photo so there are more than in the photo. This is the controller board and there is another board for all the I/O. There is also a display module.

    Robert, if you look closely you'll see that one is clearly labeled "WS7M" so it's mine!   :-)

    Are you going to start a new thread, and is FRS okay with it?

    I have a feeling they will let you out of it, instead of $999 they will get $1200

    If I understood correctly all of us who placed pre orders will get our Maestros from this batch.... A contest re "Why I should get mine first" might be entertaining.... but it sounds like all the pre orders will be shipping SOON! (Yeah)

    Tim,

    I need your help..!!! While on a vacation trip apparently my name/address went on the "bounce list" at the getsatisfaction.com list, because out of no where my 20-30 notifications I was receiving on my email went to ZERO. I checked my spam, checked my profile on the Flex community site and everything seems to be in order, but still no notifications. Somebody sent me a message about the website getsatisfaction that captures your name/address whenever there is a bounce back message from a ISP problem or whatever... Could you please look into this for me?  Ken Lodge
