Thought I'd pass on this tidbit for anyone else who's been waiting for their Iris pre-order to arrive. I got the following message earlier today from 3DR support:
We are contacting you today in regards to your order xxxxxx, containing an Iris.
We have been informed that due to some improvements on the product, all Iris orders are being delayed and expected to be shipped early February, as an estimate.
We are working very hard to improve the design to guarantee you all, the best quality in our products.
We appreciate your ongoing loyalty to us as well as your understanding.
Please let me know if I can further assist you."
Agh!. But I guess it's better for them to make fixes (uh, sorry... "improvements") before we get it rather than after.
