Most cases are done in the anodizing place. Now moves them back to the factory to install helicoil inserts.


Why are helicoil inserts being installed? are the threads not being cut into the aluminum?

Nope. It was like that for the first round, too. I imagine they're a lot more robust than just threading into the case.

Makes sense. I just took my R1 board apart, and yeah, I guess I didn't realize they used them in R1. TIL

Ordered an extra standard pcb and wondering if anyone would be interested in trading it for their bt pcb? (will cover the difference obviously)

Haven't heard any updates about the BT PCB, and was wondering if all orders would ship out at the same time, or will orders with a bluetooth pcb be delayed? Keep up the good work!

So how long are these steps going to take?

When are the  photos of the units without the newspaper coming?

They said they are aiming to ship out by the end of the month. So more pics should come before then.

I spoke to him by email but there arenít any extras available at this time.
There might be some after all GB purchasers receive theirs but Iíd rather purchase a spot from someone who already has a guaranteed spot than hope to get lucky afterwards :)
