Brett, you may be a bit late for the group buy, should still be able to get them for a decent price though, shoot Sofirn a PM on here and ask them if you can get two at the group buy price, see if they can help you out. They make it pretty easy typically…

PM Sofirn. That’s their BLF name, Sofirn. Tracey is who I’ve spoken with in the past, don’t know for sure who’s monitoring the forum.

For the record, my Q8 with XP-L2’s and Samsung 25S cells is pulling 33.8A at the emitters. Wink

Send a PM to BLF member Sofirn, just like if I was sending you a PM I’d send a message to Brett. Sofirn is their user name here.

@teacher, always reveal your ignorance. It’s better to be seen ignorant for a second rather than staying ignorant forever Smile Thumbs Up

I got my order of Sofirn Q8. It came with NarsilM v1.0. Flashed it to NarsilM v1.2, which works better.
Then also tried flashing it to Anduril (latest 09-07-2018), so far it seems to work properly too.
I didn’t encounter the “no switch light” issue that DB Custom mentioned.. could it be related to the Aux-LED configuration? (which can be adjusted in Lockout mode: ie. 4 clicks to lock-out, then click-click-hold, then select the mode)
