Could you seek informations about the ability to add single base stations to our pledge ?
At the time of the KS your FAQ specified single base station would be available for sale on pimax website.
Then recently xunshu has said this finally won’t be the case and that base stations could only be bought when bundled.
We saw that recently with the pre-orders offering to pre-order a controler bundle containing 2x pimax controlers and 2x base stations, for an unknown final price but asking for a $300 deposit to pre-order it.
I’m really worried by that because at the time of the KS I have built my pledge according to the promise written in your FAQ that single base station could be purchased from pimax website, so I only added a single one to my pledge thinking I could add another later which now reveals to be impossible…
The only way pimax currently offers to add more base stations to our pledge is to pre-order this pimax controller bundle but what about people who may want to leave their options open to chose between pimax controllers and knuckles ?
And even if we opt for pimax controllers we may not need 2 additionnal base stations from this bundle if we already have 1 or more from the KS pledge.
Xunshu has said several weeks ago pimax was negociating with the base stations supplier when we asked about the possibility to use the $100 coupon (from switching to 5K+) to add additional base stations to our pledge, but then we never heard about the result of this negociation.
This is also very annoying because while we were waiting for this answer pimax has open pre-orders for this controller bundle. So there must now be many people (backers or non-backers) already in the line as they have pre-ordered this bundle.
That’s not cool for backers who were waiting for an answer about how to add one or more base stations to their pledge (and this controller bundle will not be a valid solution for every backer anyway, depending how many base stations they already have in their pledge and if they want to leave their options open to be able to chose between knuckles and pimax controllers).
