I getting sick & tired of waiting for the Maestro. I put my order in last June thinking a December 2015 delivery date would be acceptable. We are now 21/2 months beyond that date. What gives FRS?

With your pre-order, you received the benefit of introductory pricing that saved you $200 over the regular price.  You are free to cancel your order if you do not wish to wait until we and our alpha testers give the thumbs up that the software is ready to ship.  

Had we not taken pre-orders, we would have under estimated production order build size based on our original budget by a factor of 5X.  Pre-orders have helped us get the production size right so that we will have plenty of parts available to cover all our current orders.

The only person who has 4 Maestros is K9CT.  Craig was integrally involved in the design of the Maestro control surface when the product was in the concept phase and is now stress testing Maestro in a strenuous Multi-2 contest environment.  He and the rest of the alpha team are giving us great feedback that is being integrated into the software.  We will release Maestro as soon as we deem it is ready for prime time.

Watch your email box later today for an official Maestro Update in a special version of the Flex Insider.  We are giving our updated estimate in the email.
