Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant

Recommended Posts

Honeycomb claims to be canceling large orders from same people. So keep an eye open for an update.

It's just plain capitalism, not much we can do about it.

No, but there was something THEY could have done about it. They would have sold just as many units without making people feel dirty or down about the experience. This seriously makes me want to look at other options, but their product is so well done. What a sham/shame.

"We apologize sincerely to everyone that didn't get an order in. We had no idea we would sell out in 3 minutes.
We're currently re-allocating stock from week two's production and onward. It will say on the order page which weeks production you're getting a unit from.
We'll be up a running again today.
Again my sincere apologies. We're working hard to accommodate everyone.
Thank you,
Nicki"

"we will only allow single orders. Multiple orders from the same person will be canceled."

The guilty parties are other flight sim enthusiasts as no one would know much about it otherwise.

I was able to preorder. Using Apple Pay  all the info is preloaded. I click and I had confirmation. I’ll believe it once it arrives at my door.

Well, I must say that was entirely preventable..... Oh well. They had almost entirely nothing but good will regarding their name. Stuff like this can really hurt a brand. In all likelihood, if they fix it, it'll be forgotten soon enough. But they need to fix it.

I've been watching e-bay and the numbers keep going up by the minute. There are already 77 on the US E-bay site as of right now.

Considering what towns they are shipping from some of them are from people that purchased multiple copies.

Honeycomb re-opened pre-orders, and I was able to get in on Week 2 production after also being disappointed with having my order torn out of my cart as I submitted the first time.

I give up on this random release nonsense. I missed it again because, you know, life....

Still shows available to order on my end. Week 4 production is when your throttle will ship.

I wish we can get some info on the trim wheel. I wonder if it's only one turn of the wheel.
