I am extending preorder pricing until February 15th.

This to allow me to test the initial batch of modules that have been delayed in manufacturing.

Just got an email from the manufacturer, the boards are almost ready to ship. Here is a behind the scene pic.

Due to supply and schedule issues exacerbated by COVID, I unfortunately will need to delay the release of this product. Quality and customer satisfaction are my primary concerns, and I refuse to release a product that does not meet the highest quality standards. I am actively updating the existing design and - as always - will fully test and verify that everything not only meets but exceeds industry standards. I anticipate at this time a June/July delivery and will try my best to get it done earlier.

Those who have already placed a preorder received an email.

For this reason, I have also extended discounted preorder pricing until further notice.
