    was converting from 2-axis to 3-axis and after re-rigging the wiring....I either reversed polarity or plugged into 12v instead of 5v port of my regulator. Not sure how....but I just fried all 3 axis. Im so bummed.....$1,100 mistake. Now I cant find any in-stock. Do you guys know where I can find them?? I found one place in taiwan that has 2...but they seem shady. Im in USA. QC and FF are out of stock too. email me if anyone knows where I can get.

    Ouch. That's not a good thing to hear. Either Adam or Tabb will have to respond regarding stock levels, I'm afraid.
    Sorry I can't be of more immediate help.

    Sorry to hear about your mishap. But are you certain they are destroyed? They can accept 12v without damage. Many servos and other components can not but the Radian units are okay at that voltage. But the reversed polarity might have killed them.

    Oh! No! You let the smoke out of them? Say it isn't so!
    They need the smoke to work right.....

    My best guess is that the Radians are too popular to be out of stock for too long....
