Reserved for Group Buy updates

[01/11/2022]

Double-checking and adjusting O-Ring pillar heights based on Lightning's stream of the R1 prototype. Delays may occur based on those refinements, where Iíll post an update in the channel (if necessary).

[03/11/2022]

Adjusted the time of the FCFS drop to accommodate for more EU and NA timezones 

[09/12/2022]

- Materials have arrived at the manu, starting programming and machining sometime in 1-2 weeks
- PCBs and carrying cases purchased and currently in production

Additional Info

- Leeway of 1-2 weeks added due to the CoVID stuff going on in China; still looking like itís on track for February but will be updating more if things change
