Just an update on the shipping of the Great Scott units.
You can see in the photo that David thoroughly enjoys packing the cases and leads, which are on their way to the US and EU re-shippers. We already had stock of those here in Australia.
UEi have said they will be sending meters to the three distribution locations (US, Germany, and Australia) for the great Scott backers very shortly (as in days), just some last minute firmware stuff happening.
So in theory we are still on track to have units shipped by the end of December. Possibly with Australia getting theirs first. Sadly it's likely that not all Great Scott backers will be shipped in December due to the chaos of the xmas and new years breaks, sorry about this, but it's just logistically a real problem period.
Last minute firmware and calibration issues have delayed the meters a few weeks longer than we originally anticipated.
The component supply problem is basically solved, with UEi saying they can now ship 1,000 units by January 31 and the other 1,000 units by February 28, so we are ahead of schedule on those at this point. At least for many of the Johnny B. Goode level backers.
For EU customers, that VAT invoice will come shortly. Welectron in Germany will be doing the re-shipping for us within the EU, and they will be stocking the meter in the EU after the campaign ends.
Some of the shipping is more expensive than anticipated, but still within acceptable limits which we can absorb.
Hopefully all this goes to plan, logistically it's not easy to organise all this stuff!
