Has there been any announcements about how long or when sp140 orders will begin to ship to those who have paid ?
my order said september…no specific dates though.
end of Sept. I would say sometime in Oct.
Any updates on status of sp140 orders ?
I’m losing interest
Right now the current timeframe for shipments is looking like the end November. If you have an order in and want a refund because of the production delay, just shoot me an email and ill give you a full refund.
Ill let you guys know when i have a more concrete date. The delay was because they battery case mold, the injection mold company produced wasn’t able to replace the abs cases reliably and they couldn’t pull good case from it. The good new is because they said they could do the first design and they weren’t able to, they are eating the $6000 to cut another 5200lbs mold.
For those interested this is what the fist design looked like
And the new design that is easier to pull from the mold looks like this
The explanation is very detailed and appreciated, but I’d think you’d get this information out to your customers more immediately–without waiting to be asked.
Anyone who is wondering about lead time I’ll give them as much info as i can, so if anyone is wondering shoot me an email and I let you know. I could be more proactive though and send out email blasted every month or so, you’re right. We will start doing that.
Really appreciate the update! Was starting to get concerned, thanks.
Hey Paul, can I get the dimensions of the battery pack? I want to put a second battery on my trike and would like to start making a bracket/holder for it. I don’t want to buy it and then find out I can’t fit it anywhere. Thanks!
Sure its 262x96x470mm for both the 2.2kw and 4kw cases
I do plan on building my own 2nd pack, are you able to sell BMS, case, and those spot weld parts? Can you include it in my shipment?
Awesome, thanks! Is it possible to buy a spare charger? How much? Does it charge to only 4.0 or 4.1V/cell to extend the life of the pack? Will there be any sort of warranty on the batteries, like if it just dies during the first 6 months for some unknown reason?
I agree. With things overdue, a biweekly update, progress report would be appreciated. We understand taking the necessary time to get things as right as possible. We are also very anxious to fly
Thanks for the update Paul. Once I have my unit I am probably going to have a few others ordering one too once they get to see it in person. Lots of excitement around this paramotor.
Ya if there is anyone one that wants one, just tell them wait till you try one out or we have them in stock. They can just hold on to their money for the time being because refunds are costly for us as we still have to pay the credit card fees etc.
So just let your friend know theres no rush to put money down right now for a spot in line. Best for them if they just wait till units are in stock and ready to ship. For everyone else that put their order down prior to now the SP140s will be shipped in the order it was received.
Communication. One of the corner stones of every successful business!!
Couldn’t agree more! as a business owner, communication and customer support is key!
If you need ideas/suggestions, let me know!
Are we still looking at shipping end of this month? As suggested by many here, please share another update for those who have placed a fully paid order. Or, how about a quick video of the floor showing units in production? It will be much appreciated.
Same here, please do share an update been trying to get one through direct emails but nothing so far.
