I’m trying my best to sit on my hands to control my usual impatience, but here’s my story.

I placed an order for the Uavionix Skybeacon in November and received an preorder number stating I would be charged for it when the order was released on January 2. That date has come and gone and despite two emails to them and leaving a phone message, it has been crickets. Well actually they acknowledged receiving an email. As yet no information.

At least I have not yet been charged, but I hope this isn’t an indication of what their version of customer support is. I can imagine they may be inundated, but how hard could a response be.

Curious if anyone else has any experience.

There a a few places like Chief and few on EBay who have them in stock. I finally cancelled my pre order and got it shipped out today. They didn't respond to me either until I asked to cancel the order. Received a response in 3 minutes. Good luck!

My guess is they are being over run with orders and can’t keep up with the production. They probably have supply agreements with Chief among others and are pressed to keep up with those commitments.

Sounds a little like the issue Phil has with the Quiet Comfort headset.

Are you talking about the Sky Beacon or the Tail Beacon?  At first glance after looking at the mounting template for the Tail Beacon, I am concerned that it is not going to fit into the tail of my '64 D.... the rectangular box behind the "bulb" looks like it's too long/wide to fit into the factory recess in the tail fairing.  The template does not give the width dimension for the box aft of the flange. Still waiting to hear back from uAvionix....

Sky beacon. As per moniacX, they acknowledged my cancelation and now reordered through Lafayette Avionics via eBay.

Just to refresh this... Anyone else had shipping issues. I sent in my order Jan 18. Spoke with them early last week, and go the "we're expecting to ship within the next week or two" reply. 

My annual is coming up in 2 weeks, and I"d like to have everything here. Anyone else have shipping insight?

I've noticed that Lafayette Avionics has really good prices on their avionics and buying direct on their website saves even more then on eBay. It might save someone else few $$.

I'm looking to buy the G5 from them.
