Charon Update #1

Hey all! Thanks for joining the Charon GB, if you missed out, there will be extras later!

I am most active on the Charue Design Discord, but will respond to questions here and through my email best I can. I'll be posting all updates, small or large, on the Discord and posting only the important big updates here.

Charon Production:

- Case Production has been paid for and is starting production. Estimated lead time is 8-10 weeks (this includes badges/weights)

- Metal Plate Production is being re-quoted and should take 3-4 weeks for production

- PCBs are being re-quoted as well, I'm switching PCB manufacturers (already ordered samples from new place) because the original one increased costs + MCU prices went up, new manufacturer is great and a tad faster, 3-5 weeks lead time

- POM plates and Wool Felt production hasn't started, but it takes literally 6 days for it to be made and sent to me, I live 20 minutes from the factory

- FR4 plates haven't been ordered yet, the proto design is plain and I want to add some silkscreen design to it. Lead time is about 1-2 weeks

- Rubber parts are in queue for production, should take 4-5 weeks

- Box Design in progress, once design is done lead time is about 1-2 weeks, they're local to me as well

- Others (stickers/authenticity cards/extra fun stuff) are being designed, lead time for production is also 1-2 weeks since they're local to me as well
