Default Something up with Aerotech?

So I’ve been waiting for weeks on my Q-Jet order - sent an email to customer support and got back a nebulous “they are shipping” message with no date on when mine would ship. Also, 24 mm single use composites like the F32 seem out of stock everywhere.

All this makes me wonder if Aerotech can handle the demand. Anyone have any insight?

Recently posted something similar regarding Hobbylinc. They show no Aerotech stock on anything now for some time. Not sure what's up.

That might be a Hobbylinc thing. Other more rocketry-oriented vendors seem to have motors in stock.

Also new product development might have created a cash crunch. The investment of taking all those new motors from idea to product probably wasn't cheap. Just a guess.....

In that same vein, what I was thinking is that making up a batch of F32's, a kinda-sorta fringe motor, might be a slow return investment that's not a good choice during slow times or when money is tight.
