    Doc give us another update - is this thing still alive?? Has the train derailed? Throw us a bone here, I'd take a cartoon drawn on a napkin as evidence that hardware even exists after months of promises. Now even Garrett is generating new detector buzz. Gotta up your game if you want to run with the big boys and stay relevant. Opportunity windows can close quickly. We want to believe...so give us something to believe in.

    Heard from Docweiser. Things are moving very quickly now & falling into place better than expected for the Cygnus 1-X. Stay tuned for more coming details!

I'll go with you to Merritt Park...as soon as I get the go ahead from the head honcho which will probably be early March, as the ground right now here is frozen. The warm temps this week didn't unfreeze it and next week is going to be icky. Icky is a technical term! Dumb question, is Merritt in the county or city?


    Not to put pressure on Doc, both of us being Marylander's but I got one of the first Fisher "AQ" Impulses. He's deep...

    Waiting for smokey at Merritt.....

    Merritt? I've been going north for Indian artifacts but the corn is up now. Pretty much done for the summer. I really can't do the heat. I will start detecting again come November or December. Bee allergies keep me home.

    There are too many posts hitting on too many areas for me to respond in logical order and be as comprehensive as all of you would like. Read between the lines on what I do say below, if you are careful and I am precise enough it should leave most feeling pretty good.

    Great strides have been made in the Cygnus project and we are currently further along than even hoped for. Now think about that for a minute. It was originally hoped that test machines would be ready to crank out last fall. So what I mean is that even though the overall pace of operations became much slower than originally hoped for the quality and actual down and dirty testing has gone way beyond. AviTech has decided to do just about everything itself which slowed down release dates has resulted in a HUGE hammer about to drop. CNC operations, 3D printing operations, PCB manufacture are all in place and ready to roll off the first 100 units (that can be upped), actual testing to meet the requirements list combined with conversations with friends doing similar technologies but not metal detection has resulted in 4 spin off products and a Cygnus 2 that I really have no words for at this time.

    I've given the internal team an expected release time frame but am not ready to make that public yet, but that could change literally by tomorrow.

    Will try to give updates more often but I am one tired man. I love the work that I do though and I made a promise to you, I can say you will not be disappointed!

    Stay tuned....
    Something new is coming, the Cygnus, don't be left behind!

    So, if I read your post correctly you are ready to roll off the first 100 units. Can you give us an idea of weight of each unit and ball park pricing?

    In the meantime, I'm off to the hardware store, again.

    So if I read between these two lines, we will have to wait until you up your production capability and materials 10 fold (however long that takes) before we will see pics and and first hand reviews. Or has something changed...again. It is hard to "feel pretty good" about something that is still invisible. It would be nice to at least see a graphic rendering of what you are going to feed into those CNC machines, at least, if not an actual prototype picture and a preliminary list of features and capabilities. Yeah, I'm pushing hard, but that is because I would like you to be successful. Having another legitimate detector manufacturer is only good for us detectorists especially since another legendary player in the industry has apparently recently bit the dust (Whites).

    Any business is tough...and although I am sad to see White's close, they weren't putting out a modern product in the style and features that the other guys are.

    I'm excited to see what the next year brings the hobby
    Coins I have found in MY yard-

    1775 British half penny, 178x half penny, 1816 Spanish 1/2 Reale, 1849 large cent, 1858 Seated Liberty quarter, 1892 Barber quarter, 18xx Shield nickel, 1897 Liberty head V nickel, a pile of Indian cents & Wheat pennies, 1946 dime, 1963 half dollar.

    I'm not surprised White's closed. There have been other manufacturers who just couldn't make it in the past, time moves on, but next year? I hope we're still not hiding from covid next year! People keep talking about a vaccine for Covid, but...there may or may never be one due to the complexities of the process. Fauci stated the way to get rid of AIDS was a vaccine...that's been 40 years now. I am tired of not being around people. My most interactions are with the guys that came this week and rebuilt my deck (hence hardware store comment) and the lawn guy.
