Axon II almost sold out (this is bad news)
« on: May 12, 2010, 01:17:47 AM »
I have some bad news (more for me than you guys).

My manufacturer never shipped me 80% of my product, after I already paid for it all, and has been ignoring my attempts to contact them for the last 2 months. :'(

That means my Axon II supply is really really low. I have enough supply to last about 6 weeks, and thats it.

If they never get back in touch with me, it may be 4-6 months before I have a fresh supply.

So if you need an Axon II, get it now, otherwise, I still have plenty of the original to go around.

Forget about the Axon II shortage. Is there anyway you can get your money back?

Good news is that I finally got the parts to send to my new manufacturer.

And when I moved back to the US, I found a big box of more Axon II's that I forgot I had in storage. So I haven't run out of stock yet. :)

The bad news is that I only have enough to last until next week. And I won't have any new ones for approximately 5 weeks from this posting.

So if you need one and can't wait until mid-October, order now :P

Only one Axon II left.
I still have plenty of the original Axons, though.

fyi:
My new manufacturer has begun making new Axon IIs, and they estimate 2 weeks. After I include programming, testing, packaging, shipping, and 'just in case' buffer time, I suspect I won't be shipping again until October 20th.

Hehe, with any luck that was my order that went through.  Getting ready to start my first robot.  I'm an experienced programmer and worked as a satellite/wideband communications electronics repair tech.  This will be my first attempt at design and engineering though, so wish me luck. :)

Hmmmm it doesn't match your forum email address, but the second to last order at 4:53pm matches your state. Sound right?

Yeah, that would be me.  My forum e-mail goes through filters and gets forwarded :).
