Just got this email from Freefly. If you’re on their list, you did, too. I’m re-posting it here in its entirety... -------- We know how anxious everyone is to receive their MōVI M5 and we wanted to provide an update on the delivery timeframe and new M5 features. Unfortunately, MōVI M5 production is behind schedule, and the launch date will be pushed back until March 15th. The team at Freefly has been pushing hard to deliver a fantastic product on time, but we have encountered some unforeseen delays. A few injection molded parts on the M5 had issues and the molds need to be re-worked to ensure the parts meet our stringent quality standards. This issue, coupled with the design changes we wanted to make to simplify the balancing process to make it more streamlined, have pushed out the launch date considerably. We realize this is extremely disappointing for our pre-order customers and, as early adopters and staunch supporters of Freefly and the MōVI product line, we deeply regret letting you down. We are doing everything we can to ensure there are no further delays.
