Last time I waited and the pre--orders got ALL of them followed by a longer wait for the next shipment.

There's a lot of things beyond their control and it seems everyone want's an ETA but forgets that the E = ESTIMATED.

Pacific storms, containers being held up by US Customs, and probably a dozen other factors go in to how long it takes from factory to Horizon warehouse many of which they have no control of. I can picture Ali and the gang waiting like kids at Christmas for their new creations to start shipping out.

Have patience.

DAMN, THAT HAS A FAMILIAR RING TO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted to order some receivers, servos and battery packs, all on backorder due to the Horizon/Hobbico fiasco. Even the manufacturer website says almost everything is backordered. Makes it really hard to build something when the manufacturer can't even keep things in stock
