Jeff, when you say "new orders" are you saying those placed now? I don't suppose Steve mentioned any shipping info for dates after Dayton/Xenia? It seems from all the posts I have seen here and on Flex's Facebook  page, that no one who ordered AFTER Dayton/Xenia, has received a shipping notice, much less received a radio.

James, I feel your pain ! So much for expedited shipping. I think they have had all your money for some time now ? One tells you 1 to 2  weeks after invoice and another tells you 2 to 3 weeks seams you can't be leave any thing they say.

My 6600M order date was 5/23 and it has been 17 days since invoiced and I was told it would be "sometime" during the coming week (2/12-16). It's been many months since the original shipping date. What's a few days more. Hopefully it will be soon.

Thanks for the info on flex order for us still waiting for an invoice.  Will they ever ship all the Dayton orders and move on to later dates?

It appears the had allot of orders during Dayton to get out the door... I'm hoping it picks up once over the initial Dayton rush.

It appears they have shipped everything they had built. I did not see anyone getting shipping notices last week at all. I ordered Monday after Dayton and am over 2 weeks since invoiced and no shipping notice. 

Something is holding things up.

I am commenting on the statement "It appears they have shipped everything they had built." Rich asked.

Built is a relative term.  All of the components have been built and unit tested.  A majority of the radios are mostly assembled.  The last step in production is to add options to the radio, install the covers and run the final test before being boxed up.

I thought when they said 1-2 weeks from date of invoice, they really were getting their act together, but when I heard it would be still be another week, I start to think something is wrong that they didn't anticipate, maybe production problems?  We definitely need another company update on the situation. I think we've been more than patient over the last 6-7 months.

Yes, I agree, timely updates would be nice but dont hold your breath.  I guess everyone is at Orlando taking orders for units with estimated delivery times that are overly optimistic!

I'd enjoy seeing N5AC's Orlando presentation.  Perhaps there's video somewhere.
