    Thank you TeeJay.

    Yes @delloy - if you ordered in August, then RBT is planning to ship at some point during April.

    These forecasts can be found here, on the new existing customer contact form . . .

    I hope you all have a lovely Sunday.

    Now I obviously can't say with 100% certainty, but by my very rough calculations, I am pretty sure that it would be, bud :tup:

    With regards to the Milaana, is it still in the pre order phase?
    I had a glimmer of hope, thinking I might get at least one of my orders before summer.

    I've been meaning to ask the same thing in the other thread then realized if I did it would be immediately moved, so I came over here and sure enough you already asked and just as I guessed it's been almost 20 days and not a damn person has answered you:bang:

    Better chance of getting answers to your question would be to go to RBT's website and use the contact form. He does not monitor these threads consistently. Knowing him it is likely a typo.

    Control knob redesign has caused delays in shipping. And the concentrated effort on the Milaaaaaaaaaaaaaaania.

    I find the anticipation exciting and giving me something to look forward too. Its kinda like is my dad ever going to come back home...? :haw::uhoh::cry::goon:

    But in all seriousness I guess july is my new expected arrival. Do I wish I had this in October, of course. Can I live with out this vape...? No question I've made it this far. I believe this wait is only going to increase the quality and the patience will pay off. Since I paid back in September I don't even worry about the money its long gone. I do check the thread in hopes every day that some break through happened and all the zions are in the mail!! Only to see another VnV photo which btw never gets old!!

    What I'm saying is I'm happy I preordered the zion and think it will arrive exactly on time!!

    Kinda like Gandalf said

    "A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to."

    Anymore info on whats really happening here with shipping. Doesn't seem have been any news for what seems like an age! I cannot access any of the FAQ via my iPad as the dropdown doesn't work. It is getting a bit irritating not knowing the situation and when I might actually expect to get something for the money spent. Ordered Aug 15th 2015

    I don't think I'm gonna cancel because I really want it, and at times could do with the extra funds, but I have considered it a few times now :(

    RBT's last update was posted in both the Zion and Milaana threads. The problem with shipping the Zion is finding a power control that is robust enough to meet warranty/manufacturing standards that will fit in the hole that was already drilled in all of the wood bodies. He has work-a-rounds that he thinks will get the job done. He is waiting on parts to make that happen. He is pushing Milaana's while he works out the details for Zion. I believe all of this information was covered in the faq.

    As far as the webpage... ditch the Apple product ( j/k). Not sure but it works on Android, PC (Ms Edge, Chrome and Firefox) and Safari on my Mac book.

    Yes iPads don't work with it apparently.

    I posted updates in the Zion thread per a conversation with RBT, he will get back to building Zions in a few weeks when he has all the parts, once Milaana orders are caught up and there is stock of them available, they are already being produced much quicker than Zion ever could be. Seems we could still be on track for summer Zions, about a full year after the betas shipped, should be a very complete product at least!

    As far as I know there has been nothing from RBT since the posting on the site on 5/25

    At that time I think he expected orders to go out in late June or July. After all the Milaana orders have been filled.

    It still says:

    "When will my unit Zion ship?
    The Zion pre-orders are predicted to ship to the following schedule with 80% confidence
    Ordered May/June 2015 - Shipping in May
    Ordered July/August 2015 - Shipping in June
    Ordered Sept/Oct 2015 - Shipping in July
    Ordered Jan/Feb 2015 - Shipping in July"

    on the existing customer page.


    The milaana:

    "We expect to have all our our pre-order sales complete by the week of 6/7 at which point our two online retailers, Planet Vape and Vapor Geeks will be provide our retail sales and customer service"

    So milaana pre-orders should've been "complete" a week ago...

    I'd say add another month on each of those dates since none were sent out last month AFAIK. Being that it's now already half way through this one maybe 2.

    Haven't heard any shipping confirmations in the Zion thread but then he has just shipped with out them so who knows.

    I would presume longer than it said at this point clearly, seems Milaanas had a bit of pause and perfect recently too, in any case I'm sure we'll all know when Zions are back at it, I'd expect an update saying as much at the very least

    Really wont be surprised if it's around September or October that they actually start shipping.

    Rather than rush out unfinished like Milaana, i rather RBT spend more time improving Zion''s build quality and working out kinks. I'm expecting a much more polished product this time around if the Zion is meant to be his flagship.
