Believe me, we as well. I have been able to have pre-production models in my hand and they looked damned good.

Hi Mathijs, That is very good to hear, everything I've seen so makes me think it's been engineered very well.

OK, then the Facebook link on their Homepage is just wrong. Thanks for pointing to the correct Facebook URL.

Still on their web site:

"We expect both products to launch in Q1 2018 but will provide more accurate information as we get closer to a release date."

 

@Mathijs,

I guess you have have the same information as we have, or can you disclose some more?

Thanks for that info Mathijs. I'm surprised the release date has been put back from Q1 2018 to Q4 2018 without any real explanation as to why. I have read there was a certain amount of redesign and a change of some components to keep the price at $199. A lot of people wrote on Fly Honeycomb Facebook page imploring them not to compromise quality to keep to that price. I hope Nicki Repenning (CEO) has taken that on board.

 

I'm pretty sure people would not complain paying an extra $20-40 to keep the quality. The whole point of these units is to fill the gap between Saitek (cheap) and PFC (expensive) so it's important the quality is there.
