Quick update:

Manufacturing has resumed after CNY.  Boards are currently still being machined.  Next comes surface treatment and anodization.  Still on target for GB fulfilment July 2021.

Website crashed in seconds, by the time many could F5 back in they were gone. Gotta remember everybody and their mother has found proxies in every market if there’s a region lock. Cannonkeys wasn’t regionlocked.

Canada and EU had 100? USA had 200?

Hey everyone, just a quick update!

We're getting close! The 180s are moving into anodizing now and all the other pieces are coming together, such as gaskets, screws, PCBs, etc.

Conservatively, we're expecting shipments to go out in June to us and vendors. Depending on transit time and of course rigorous QC, we're currently expecting boards to ship to customers throughout July and August.

We've definitely taken a hard look at what we could do better when it comes to fulfillment and learned a lot from our previous 165 group buy, so we're hoping for a much more efficient and streamlined QC and packaging process this time around. This likely means an easier time on the vendors (hopefully), despite how much we've scaled in quantity.

As we get closer, we'll be updating more frequently. As always, stay safe!

Awesome to hear. Very pleased to see that this is still coming on time :)
