    I've got one on order.
    With all of the delays, I'm curious to see what their customer service is like.

    I guess that I do not know what anyone should *expect*...

    They offered it up at a low ball price, stating that it would be ready almost a year ago, but people, my self included, wanted to get into one, knowing that there was not one even in a working prototype...and based on the idea that there would be something before a year was out...

    I am dissapointed that the product was not a *bit* more solidified before it was pushed...

    I just hope that if and when the Orion is available, that it does not go the way of the first generation Atlas, which was not designed strong enough to handle the tourque of a 4:1 gear set, and that the delays involved with this are for making a better product right from the get go.

    This has not prevented me from driving or wheeling my junk anyplace...

    Good luck!

    -Steve

    Just got off the phone with AA, thought I'd give an update. Sounds like the end of this month is still possible, mid April at the absolute latest.
