    It's not leaking, it is building excitement through the strategic use of teaser images and updates haha :D. As I sit here about ready to wrap up a design for a local woman whom asked me not to post updates or progress on social media. I can understand how hard it is not sharing every detail. I am sure it will be well worth the wait. I am looking forward to the Apex controller and appreciate all the hard work , research and testing you guys are doing to bring us the best product possible. :thumbsup:

    They should have named it Sasquatch instead of Ape-X!

    Did you all see the online cad/cam software while it was up? Im gonna assume thats a reason why it's taking so long, because they're making their own software too... Somebody had a link posted but its now gone.:D

    Edit: oops here it is..

    We could start a rumor that it will be released on Mother's Day....

    (But I won't do that - I really just want to be subscribed to this thread.)

    Hey guys, We can't wait as well! We are working really hard to make this happen. Its been a long road of development but we can say that in true OpenBuilds fashion it will be awesome! In fact the delay is mainly because we want to be sure its awesome. We will be sharing a detailed update soon so stay tuned.
