Sorry for shouting :-) As you already know if you follow us on Twitter (@theQuadshot), the parts came in last Thursday! Our truck driver got a little lost on his way from Oakland, but we tracked him down and showed him the way. Then it was just a simple matter of unloading a 20’ container full of hundreds of Quadshots-to-be: Everything was very well packed and seems to have made its trans-Pacific journey safely. We are working on building the...

Our shipping container (aboard the APL Denmark) arrived in the Port of Oakland yesterday afternoon! We'll post another update once the container clears customs and arrives in Santa Cruz – fingers crossed that it happens quickly and that everything had a safe journey! Now back to getting ready to receive 18 cubic meters of parts... Cheers, --the Quadshot team
