This picture is the last of the backlogged APM 2.5 orders going out from the 3DR shipping department. Orders should be shipped within 1-2 days from now on. Whew!

Demand was overwhelming but the 3DR team brought the second Tijuana pick-and-place line up with some state-of-the-art machines and it's finally running smoothly now. The line can now handle 500 APM 2.5 boards a week (in addition to its share of all the other 3DR products).

We're still listing the assembled APM 2.5 boards as shipping within one week (unassembled is 1-2 days), but that's conservative. Most boards should ship within a few days now.

The enclosures are still a couple weeks away. We decided to modify them slightly with a special foam shield for the baro sensor, to protect it from any wind distortion, so it went back for another design rev/test cycle. It will be worth it--you should see much better alt-hold performance with the enclosure on.
