I get that everyone is excited for the Hornet, I am too, but I will be refraining from a pre-purchase in this case. Before you bring out the banhammer mods, I am aware that Eagle Dynamics wants to make sure that they get most of the things right out of the gate, and that they want to leave themselves some room for showstopping bugs, etc.

I just feel that this is not the right way to go about this and hope that in the future they will not put modules for pre-purchase without a solid release date (DD/MM/YY).
There will be no ban-hammer flying your way as you haven't violated any forum rules. I, too, am disappointed that a specific date wasn't given. I do understand why ED is taking this approach. They are trying to ensure that expectations are somewhat contained. ED will also try to beat their projection as they are saying that is their worst case scenario.

No one can fault you if you decide that you want to wait for a specific date prior to your pre-purchase.

Nobody is forcing anyone to purchase it today. Wags commented about the release timeline, that is what they feel is the best thing right now. I feel like it will be ready sooner than later, but this is a complex project, things happen.

To me the price is more than fair. Would I like it cheaper? Sure, who would not? however would we like them to sell products at a loss, then be out of buisness? or come to the conclusion that the public side is dragging them down? over all its still a reasonable price, and as far as the early access goes, the last several have gone without huge problems and I suspect the longer EA is to continue that trend. I bought it, and don't regret it, It just cant get here soon enough!

Does this mean that they will add a fixed release date at some point when they are confident enough they know they are going to make it?

I believe they will, I imagine it will be a one week notice type of thing when it happens.

So, out of curiousity: can there be more than one module in pre-purchase at the same time (would be a first afaik) or does this basically mean that there won't be a 3rd party EA release until summer-ish 2018?

No, this wouldnt stop any other modules from being released into EA or pre-purchase.

As far as I'm concerned, the release date is set, and it's June 21th. Until further notice...
