CNC is completed. The hold up is PCB. Once that's done board can be shipped. I will make another inquiry about it this Sunday, and if no words come back about it I will go get another manufacturer and that would take three weeks, so ship date should be in November at the latest

Got some news from the PCB manufacturer. Guy said it will be shipped out this week. One last chance and I will pull my order from them, throwing the 50% I have sinked in already. As for the Cerakote case, shipping should begin today. I will update asap when I actually get a shipping code from them.

Also, I gotta throw a curve ball at you guys...I was told that for those who ordered extra PCBs, you guys will only get one daughter board. Since it has a socket on it, shouldn't be a huge issue, structure wise. I can't do much about ordering new daughter boards so if you guys want it I can refund $5 for each PCB ordered for those who paid for extra boards. Thanks.

Thanks for the update.  Let's hope the daughter board isn't the weakest component :)  Surely not.

In the last round there were two daughter boards.  One board had the USB port and a second one had a few RGB LEDs.  Are both those boards included?

The extra boards only include the main board. Daughter boards are not included.

Got the SF Express number. The non coated raw case is coming to Hong Kong for cerakote. Guy came through and said the PCB should be on its way to the factory for packing. I will update you guys once packing actually starts.

Just when you thought everything is peachy, this happened. Story is the PCB guy did a fit demo for the breakout board, got it wrong, made a second version, which is correct. Green board is the correct version. Black one is the production outcome and got it wrong again. I want you guys to know I put in hard earned money, thousands of it, just to get one since I want it myself. I am pressing him everyday for the pass two weeks. Annnnnnnd...I am speechless. All I can say is I will keep pressing him daily until it's fulfilled. I am annoyed, frustrated and slightly triggered...at 2 in the morning. main board is fine though. Thanks for you guys' patience.http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5dbc716585378/20191102_015353_1278.mp4http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5dbc715a5bf5a/20191102_015308_9109.mp4

That's unfortunate. Is he willing to re-do the PCB? If so, you can just keep us updated.

Yes. The little board is still on hold. Deadline is next Monday before we seek out a new manufacturer for the small board.

Cerakoted board will be delivered next week.

Zilents V2 arrived at the installer's place. Main PCB will be sent out for soldering.

Hi all, I got my batch of kit, and boy am I lucky to have done so. The ribbon cable on the top left hand corner to the led daughter board is slightly shorter than it needs be...say 3mm. The plastic light piece is not installed out of the factory. Some hammering is needed. Trying to ask Alf if they can install it before sending out to you guys. Also, the fit of the top and bottom case is quite snug. Some force is needed to pry them open.

I will update you guys as soon as the new ribbon cable is in. Shouldn't be a long time. I still have 8 black and two white kits to sell. Hit me up at five.work@gmail.com and we I can send you an invoice. At this point, no extra PCB will be sold. Thanks.

Can you elaborate on this? How snug are we talking? Is there potential for damage to the case finish when itís opened?

Nope. That's not the case. Just that you will need to use your nails to pry a bit.

Yes. Guy said the ribbon cable will be sent out today. Second time I am grateful that I got the goods for checking before you guys, is that half of the bottom case has issues with the bottom mounting screw holes are too short or not even threaded. Honestly I have no words for it. I will have to lug 6 packs of heavy aluminum back to China for fixing...sigh.

Yuck.  I donít mind paying a little extra if it starts to cost you prohibitively.  Hopefully this is all covered by the manufacturer, but Iím sure you have a lot of extra money you are fronting for things like travel.

Hi all, in light of the kit being pushed back for months, I have a proposal. I can send out all the kits, and send you guys the break out cable later for the LED board. The cable will be sent to you for free once that's available. If you'd want that, please send me your email address as you put in your order, and DM me right here. Thanks. I will do my best to send everything out so that you guys can have it over Christmas.

Are you saying that it will be two months until the led ribbon cable is finished now?  Iím fine with waiting until everything is finished and working.
