Thanks for the initiative on this Beefy!
Fairly quick, actually. The dollar is strong and stable, and everything is in stock at Mouser and Digikey right now. Blackgates would take just a week. We would be primarily waiting for cases, PCBs and other bits from Beezar.
Fairly non-commital, but about 5 weeks to your doorstep?
On another matter one thing I do have to stress now, and I make this point to everyone, is that I do intend to close the group buy very soon without any warning. As soon as the orders get large enough that I might attract GST and import duties, no more. It looks like I can get around that risk for the Mouser order, but the Beezar and Sonic Craft orders are another matter. I would hate to think that any savings disappear because of it.
Also, my credit card is going into spasms at the initial amount of cash that I will have to shell out if things get much bigger. I don't want to have to dip into savings to avoid paying interest while I wait for payment from everybody!
So in summary...... first in, best dressed for the limited space I have remaining.
