Dear ClearView Goggle Customers,
We’d like to share some good news regarding the progress of the CVG. The first pilot production run of the new boards arrived in our offices last Friday, and have passed testing. Early this week, we assembled and tested a small handful of this batch to compare to our ground station Race receiver. Results indicate that the module performance is solid. Thus, final in-house assembly, testing, and QC begins tomorrow.
Receivers will be shipped out to customers in the following order:
1) Customers who paid in full but have not yet received a unit
2) Recall Customers who received an earlier unit that currently does not work properly (RMA)
3) Recall Customers who received an earlier unit that works
4) More pre-order customers.
Emails will be sent out by Lisa to all of the above customers when it’s your turn to either return your old CVG, or pay the remainder of the pre-order.
Now that we are satisfied with the testing, our second (very large) production run starts tomorrow. This production run is large enough to at least cover all customers in batch 1, batch 2, and commercial pre-orders from our distributors. Based on past experience, these boards are expected at Iftron’s offices in 3 weeks time. Then, they will go through final assembly, testing, calibration, QC and final packaging/shipping.
Important note: At this time, we do not recommend the recent inductor modification to older Fatshark goggles because it does not provide enough power to the module when the Fatshark battery is low. However, if you want the HDO version (that works with the HDO goggles without a ribbon cable), you can just let us know and we will ship this version. Please also note that if you take delivery of the ribbon cable version, that you can send it in for a mod to the HDO version for free. You just pay round trip postage.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to comment on this post. But if you need more specific information, please email us.
