I think the silence means they're busy packing up kit boxes.

Probably not quite, please be patient. When you see a few/several or more videos of prototype flights within a month, I think that will be your clue that the first production run is about to be approved.
If you want any rumors to think about... I think Compass wants to do a larger revision 2 prototype run with more test pilots involved, as there has been issues going from low quantity prototypes to larger qty retail kits. So, I think it is not too far off until you see more flight videos.

That's a good move, hopefully it will save them the headaches they had with the 7HV and motor.

Despite the wants of people hear. No need to rush, the market for 450's is only getting bigger, Compass need a smooth release.

www.rigidheli.com has them for pre-ordering for 50 euro.

http://www.rigidheli.com/Webwinkel-P...PRE-ORDER.html

The thing is, you may have some trouble ordering online if you don't understand Dutch. For some reason, half the website is in English but a good portion is in Dutch (including the checkout process - at least I wasn't aware of an English checkout).

But the contacts page (if you can't understand it) basically translates to: if you have any questions email them and they'll try and get back to you in 24 hours, or you can call them during those opening hours mentioned (CET, naturally) there.

I don't think myself now it'll be a problem if you emailed them in English or even called them up. While not all people in the Netherlands speak English, I'm willing to bet these guys do.

Hey guys,

Sebastian said at the 3D Masters last weekend that the final prototypes would be delivered to the testpilots this week to start the final testing. He also said that he expected that the Warp would be ready approximately in 2 months time.

Grtz,
Dirk
