I have been waiting eagerly for the third wave!!! I am paying attention and I love what you guys are doing and all the sacrifice it takes to get this done!!! Most of the time I just don't want to waste everyones time reading just another dang post. Mostly silent supporter! Also if there are extras because the johnny-come-lately's that hopped on the bandwagon late...bug out at the last second---

 

*_+Sign me up for 2 more GigaThrowers - bgondee 1061! Even if they are $200 each without batteries. +_*

 

If not. No big deal. All I have to say is thanks and maybe one of these days I will ask some advice on a Vero 29 (or whatever is better at that time) that I want to hit 25-30K lumens. Love BLF!!

I just wanna SHINE!

The UI of the Emisar series is perfect, with either ramping or momentary on Mode accessible via quadruple click. Maybe not so important with the GT, but I definitely miss it on my Q8.
Have you considered sending your Q8 driver to Lexel in Germany? He could reflash it with the latest NarsilM v1.2. Should be pretty cheap.

I was thinking about the postage costs. But next time I buy one, I could get it sent directly to Germany. Good call.


Note that I said mail the driver, not the whole light. Would postage be really expensive for just a driver?

Oh right … yeah, I guess I can just about manage that! Silly

(bear in mind it’s 4.38am where I live…)

The GT includes Narsil 1.3 from the factory. This includes a momentary mode that I have ended up just leaving my GT’s in.

It is 5 clicks to access it IIRC.

Hmm, I guess you are right, I know TomE made a 1.3 for the GT but not sure if lumintop ever actually put it on the lights. I know mine are 1.3 but then I reflashed them due tot he prototypes having the wrong fuses.

I actually have another GT for NASA coming next week, I will check that one and see if momentary works.

i have read tens of hundreds if not thousands of posts in this and the previous thread, this is my first post in it and i am excited for the light and i have an intended use for i, i suppose because i was keeping up to date i have never really had a need to comment.

Thanks to everyone involved for their seemingly stressful efforts.

Neal answered me that gt was not sent, maybe it will be sent next week … If 450 flashlights are already exactly ready, what’s the problem to send me a flashlight? I already cease to understand why lumintop does not send a flashlight! How long can i wait? Why do I hear every week about next week! 4 months are you serious ??? !!! Angry

I will have him check on yours, pretty sure it shipped but he has not gotten the tracking numbers from lumintop yet.

Apparently lumintop uses some sort of forwarding company where they give the shipments to the company, the company then figured out the best shipping method, prints the labels and takes care of actually getting them out of the country.

They then send the tracking numbers to lumintop who in turn has to send them to Neal.

So there is a delay from shipping to Neal even having the tracking numbers.

Your case is unique, I think they mentioned that they were having trouble finding a good shipping method to your country. They had a big problem with another order to your country and do not want to repeat it.

I read this thread every day. As soon as the round 3 announcement was made I updated some personal info on my PayPal account. I couldn’t be more excited.

That reminds me. It is important that everybody have their Paypal account info up to date. Shipping address, your name, email and phone number is all pulled from there.

YES! This is SUPER important. Many of the issues from the last batch were caused be incorrect info and having to update order info after the order was placed.

This time around there will be a $5 fee for any changes to the information after the order is placed.

Also if there are any issues with the shipping or otherwise due to the information not being correct, all associated fees and charges will be the buyers responsibility (there were a few cases of the wrong address being used and the order was returned to lumintop, costing them more then the light just in the combined shipping costs).

If the issue is lumintops fault they eat the cost themselves without an issue.

I Should add this to the OP when I get some time.

Im here, and im very excited. Smile the only negative thing is that it’s starting to get a lot brighter on the evenings over here, so when I’ll get my hands on this light, there will be no darkness. Because I will use it to spot wolves that might be out on the fields. They have seen wolves on the fields where we walk our dog. (Gf is afraid they might attack our dog) im not so sure about that though. So she practically forced me to buy it. (Not complaining though lol)

It might be that with all the delays and mishaps, people may have a hard time trusting these kind of posts. But what do I know.

Previously, Neal said that there was no problem with sending. Flashlight will be sent via dhl espress, that is, there are no problems with the delivery to my country.
But then again and again I hear that the flashlight is not sent. Will be shipped later, later, again later …

I will check with him and see. I could have gotten the countries mixed up. I know one of the countries in your area had some issues with customs clearance IIRC.

In my country, the customs threshold is 1000 $ and 50 kg of weight … There should be no problems.

Ok, I must have mixed you up with another place. I will ask Neal when is going on when I talk to him next (it is both the weekend and the middle of the night in China now)
