I preordered a V5 Classroom Starter Kit instead of the system bundle and motors because you got a few parts and a pair of omni wheels for just a little bit more $$. However, it looks like the shipment dates for all V5 kits were just pushed back to either September or October. The V5 components themselves still say expected to ship in August.
I run an independent program that meets primarily over the summer, but VEX has been sold out of 393 motors and omni wheels. So, I have 2 new teams sitting around this summer with just a few worn out 393 motors between them. Obviously Im very motivated just to get something for them to work on and September is too late.
Is there any word about why the kits are being pushed back but the system bundle still says August?
Should try to switch my pre-order from the kit to the system bundle now? Is it important to be a preorder to be at the front of the queue? At this point I would even consider buying another cortex system but there is no point without available 393 motors.
