AMC1280USB controller PCB boards are in production
Thanks for the patience. I can't get back to you soon enough on email as I have being busy sourcing parts and even making design changes last minute to improve the controller hardware and make it even more easy to use.
The PCB boards are finally in production, expected to be delivered to me in about 30 days for final assembly of a few connectors and testing before they are ready for shipping. You will be notified of the time of shipping so you can expect it.
The number of controllers to be made, including the after kickstarter pre-orders, reached 200 pieces (of various options), with the majority being the popular AMC1280USB Deluxe model.
In mean time I made a final prototype (AMC1280USB Deluxe) to test before the production and you can see below how it looks all assembled:

The Pre-orders for after kickstarter may extent a little bit more, contact me and I can tell you about availability: http://motionsim.blogspot.com/2017/08/extending-pre-orders-for-kickstarter.html
I'll make further update announcements as the project progress. Thanks for your attention.
