Bad news:
Due to pandemia, airline industry is near zero level so many parcels are stacked in the airports.
Good news:
If you have a custom order and it is possible to make it with manual lathe, next two weeks is perfect time for me to make it true.

Thanks for the information kiriba-ru ! :THUMBS-UP:

He's right... ordered a spacer back in March and I never did get it. Dropped dead in customs.

Mine has shipped from Moscow yesterday, I’ve just got the update on the 17track app.
I believe my parts will arrive during the next week, hopefully!

I have checked all trackings and found a dozen of frozen parcels (from mid March).
All are overseas (USA&Canada&Australia). Some of them are not actually frozen because have been exported for 2nd time in the end of April.
No worries, I have enough parts, funds and abilities to re-ship, refund or machine almost any part that have not been delivered.
All orders are insured and if there was no delivery confirmation I will get a return cost (usully after half-year delay but today its not important).

Any chance of reshipping mine?

We need to wait until airplanes start regular flights. I guess if I reship orders now, you will get two orders one day.

Australia Post is no longer able to provide international delivery services to the Russian Federation and will no longer accept any items for delivery. This is due to flight cancellations and/or border closures.

For items currently held, Australia Post continues to work closely with partner airlines and postal operators to try to move items as quickly as possible.

Express items will be given priority over Standard items during this time.

Few more words about delayed delivers.
I ship out 99% of orders as air tracked small parcel and this way seems to have most problems nowadays.
Regular post is usually shipped as combined delivery, this means box can go part of the way with plane and other part with any other type of transport. It takes up to 3 month but each day it gets closer to the recipient.
Looks like russian post doesnt have enough authority to change this way for air mail parcels. They are not able to take stacked parcels from airports and move them to the barge. All overseas air parcel will wait direct air flights to destination country (regular flights), or (small chances) there will be new international agreements to manage this parcels through one of european airports.
I have no clues when it is good time to start reshipments. Few orders have passed smooth to the US through NY during pandemia, probably they were lucky enough to get into diplomatic`s plane. As soon as I will see that later shipments go smooth and customers will have chance to get what they need sooner, I will start reshipments.
Now I can only ask everyone to wait. Probably, 3 month of delivery time will be under average for current situation. (Note: this is about overseas delivery – US, Canada, Australia).
If you dont need goods anymore and dont want to wait so long, please PM me your refund request.

P.S. I dont have many cases to analyze but seems that there is no big problems with parcels to EU. Now they take 4-5 weeks instead of 2-3 weeks in perfect conditions.

Just out of curiosity but, since you are speaking of S21 (S21A?) triple spacers, what is the suitable TIR optic for a S21A triple? I have an unused S21A host lying around I still haven't thoroughly examined, although the bezel opening measures ∅19.8mm with my cheap caliper. So am I guessing right if the same Carclo 10507 and others alike?

Yes, carclo triple is what was supposed to be used with.
100% bezel opening should give some output improvement in comparation with S2+.

When I received my Triple SST-20’s from Kaidomain, they also gave me a set of optics to go along with them and they seem to fit just under the glass.

The Kaidomain optics feel a little throwier than a 10507, but I haven’t measured them.

Thanks for the information on the optics from Kaidomain KnHawke and treellama, will have to try a triple sometime. Knowing myself, it'll have to be fully regulated, with boost driver and series emitters.

In any case, I guess that triples are on the floody side of beams, ¿isn't it?

Not a problem!
The Triples I got are in Parallel (I think that is the proper term {I’m tired atm lol}, still 3V but draws more amps) and I’m gonna use a MTNElectronics FET+7135 driver, should make for a good pocket rocket with the S21A (The flood will likely be the same to the OP reflector that it come stock with)

when my 4×18a arrives i’ll be able to provide dimensions but if a custom centering ring for a 32mm noctigon for the 4×18a would be possible… a simple spacer to fit into the head to center the mcpcb i’d add it to my next
