Trying to get some sense of how long I'll be waiting for my Maestro to arrive (ordered Oct 23, 2015)... weeks, months?  I'm curious if anyone received their Maestro that ordered theirs in June or later?

Someone that ordered June 29 got their invoice today. June 25 got his invoice last Sat and it shipped mid week. Earlier June orders appear to have shipped. I ordered July 3 no invoice yet but should be close. Try to be patient (trust me I know it's hard) as they have to do their normal sales and shipping plus all of the previous order maestros. They did say that the first production hardware run covered the pre orders tho. And I am sure they won't be slouches with keeping units coming.

I'll be sure to post when I get my invoice, also the frs radio enthusiasts page on fb is a good info line.

I ordered 6/15/15...paid off in several months, but I have received no news?  How would a 6/29/15 order be filled before a 6/15/15 order?  Doesn't sound right.  Can't wait!  Have been like a kid waiting for summer vacation from grade-school!  I want to play!  Play, play, play...I want, I want....heee heee

Flex'ers please correct if I'm wrong but believe the Maestro pre-orders were taken starting at Dayton 2015 through November 15, 2015. 

Dave if you received the Maestro introductory price ($999), you have a pre-order.

November 15 sounds about right, Ralph. TNX. Hopefully Maestro will be nicely shaken down and the latest software installed by the time they get to mine, ordered on that final day <ggg>. (That was the idea...)

sounds like the maestro specific updates are pretty painless thankfully. Thanks to flex for bridging the gap between traditional users and hardcore SDR guys with purpose built hardware.

Ordered on 6/15/2015...Placed the $100 deposit for the intro-price.  I paid it off early b/c I figured that money has a habit of finding necessities that need to be paid...Didn't want to get caught short when the final bill came in.  So, I sent some money each pay period.  Last payment went out on 10/18/2015 and I was paid in full as of that date.  Was just surprised to see people stating that orders placed on 6/29 or later were already filled and delivered.  I think they were mistaken re their order dates...I am patiently waiting for the new toy!  de W3DCB  Daniel

6/25 and 6/29 were the latest I saw that people say they got invoices on the fb group. I haven't seen anything later and I ordered 7/3

Mine was indeed shipped (ordered 6/25) but there was an address snafu as I requested it shipped to another address different than when I ordered it.  Flex is fixing the issue so I should get it any day.  I got a quick response to the problem so still a happy Flexer.

With May and June pre-orders being delivered sounds like Flex is making good progress.  Hopefully my October '15 order will show up sometime this summer.

Anyone care to post when they ordered their Maestro and when they received Invoice as paid or took delivery?    I ordered mine in October and am just wandering where we are in the delivery process.

One thought could be there is now an entire collection of used Maestros. Being used, maybe this is an opportunity for Burt to get his at the $999 price.

Aside from special dispensation for Burt, how about everyone take a chill pill and allow it to arrive when it arrives. It's going to anyway.

Possibly people are just curious of the rate that they are going thru the pre orders, which seems to be a pretty good clip. 

You want to see excitement over a new product go check out the elecraft and kx3 reflectors. I turned off my notifications due to all the buzz about the kx2

Nothing beats the catholic release of emotion expressed in here. Give it time Steve, you'll see what I mean. I've seen more patient 4 year old boys.

hihi, 
I am a fairly patient person but im not going to lie when i saw they started shipping the info here (how fast they were moving thru the queue was nice.) As far as when it released or when the next version SSDR comes out i can sit back and enjoy the ride. A pet peeve of mine is the type of people that complain about how long something is taking to develop and insist that "it should already be done" or It was initally stated it was gonna come out x day and now its y.

For manufacturers these days it seems your dammed if you show people whats coming because they want it now and your dammed if you dont because "we havent seen anything new."
