  • Need help with APM2 Kit

    I just got my APM2 kit. I wonted a kit so I could have end connectors – I sure with that they would offer that option on assembled boards.

    The kit came with a separate resister and diode but I can’t find the instructions on where to install them. What is the purpose of those parts?

  • Got my Email today..."You Order has Shipped." just letting you know that even though twitter is up to 24910, mine is 25026 and shipped a bit over an hour ago.

    BTW - order was placed 2nd June - so that is pretty much only a couple of days over 6 weeks for anyone who needs to set a timeframe on their own upcoming delivery.

  • I've been trying to buy one for awhile.  The same day the store stopped taking orders I was actually through to the payment option, submitted it and then my order was kicked out like it wasn't there.  I understand the move for more production, now every time I try to order one some part is missing.  First it was the gps and then the magnetometer and now its a bent 4 pin even though it says 105 in stock.  So am I unlucky or is there a problem with the store?

  • I have one for sale in case any one interested.  :)

  • Looks like they've hit another bottleneck...no updates on shipping for 8 days odd....:(  Must be another Exhibition somewhere. Go 3DR...hopefully they win an extra 1000 workers and a Production plant... :)

  • Production seems to have slowed down quite a bit over the last week... It's driving me crazy because they stopped right before getting to my order number.  I placed my order 6 weeks ago as of today :(

  • Even though I have calculated the expected delivery time I am not hopeful of getting my order anytime soon.  I have emailed 3DR and there was a response referring me to the 1-2 week time for the non-assembled APM2.  Of course I ordered my non-assembled APM2 back on the 28th of May so its beyond 2 weeks now.  Looking at the order queue it is a very serial process.  Even if you order an in stock item not requiring assembly, your order is stuck in the same queue with the assembled APM's which are taking longer to build e.g up to 4 weeks.  I am not too concerned as the latest code will be well tested by the time I get my order.  Interesting enough the main web site page claims same day delivery for in stock items.  I have other parts in my order so knowing murphy these will be out of stock by the time the APM2 non-assemlbled product ships.

  • I ordered APM2 fully assembled 2 weeks ago - and understand they are working hard to fullfil orders...But have also sent them 2 emails to find out what is going on with the order as far as ETA goes and whether I can add an Ardustation to the order - which NEVER seems to have any ATMEGA128s in stock and therefore NEVER shippable...But so far I have had ABSOLUTELY no response from 3dRobotics...By the way they have already sucked my $400+ for the entire order.

    I would just at least like a "Hi thanks for your enquiry, shipment should be expected in X weeks, yes you can add to order..." Or even an auto responder on email would be good to let you know they even received it!


    Cheers

  • My order for a non-assembled APM2 was placed on the 28th May (247xx) By my calculations (from previous order posts) they were up to 22923 on the day I placed my order. Based on data trending it looks like 80+ APM2 orders get processed per business day. Of course this varies somewhat. However, by best estimate my non-assembled APM2 will ship on the 26th June some 4 weeks from when I placed my order. This is provided 3DR do not run out of stock before then.

    The web site stated 1-2 weeks for the non-assembled APM2. Also the stock number showed considerable items in stock when I placed my order (currently 44 left in stock). I ordered the non-assembled version without GPS thinking the order would go out quicker. Looking at the order numbers from recent posts I am guessing it could be a month or more now to see my APM2.
