@ Architect -
I, too, hope that the project will complete successfully. But I have to admit, at this point, I’ve pretty much mentally written it off.
Unlike many of the complainers, I start from the assumption that anything backed on Kickstarter may or may not work out, and a reward may never appear.
I backed the Flexbot (nee Hexbot) hex copter, including Wi-Fi camera, and still have yet to receive the camera, though I’ve already managed to break the frame of the copter at least once. That project has not lived up to its promise at all, but that’s how it goes.
I think folks who are complaining about the delays should just be happy that they haven’t backed something more expensive like one of the many, many 3D printer projects. I’m betting at least some of those have been big disappointments.
If it gets done, it gets done. Much like the situation with retired Gadgeteer modules, folks like GHI and Secret Labs do the best they can to deliver good stuff for their customers, but not every decision or result will make everyone happy.
