Joined drop 10/3/18, drop ended 10/8/18, product shipped 10/26/18, product "received" 10/31/18. The only issue with the "received" is that the product was never actually received. I will wait the couple days, as Massdrop says couriers can sometimes post an early "delivered", but I've never had that experience, so I doubt that's the case.
I'm leaving this post here, rather than a bad rating, as I don't believe this is the manufacturer, nor Massdrops fault (the fault likely belongs to FedEx, whom I've called and have yet to get a good answer from); but I'd just like to get this issue solved, so I'm posting here alongside filing a ticket with Massdrop customer support. I can only hope their turnaround with this product is as good as it was with a different product that I had issues with; which was solved promptly within about a week or so, new product in my hands.
I will update this post as things progress.
Update 11/22/18: Forgot to update this! I can go back and check my emails to see exactly when everything worked out, but I'm too lazy. :P General idea was I had to deal mostly with the postal service (as they messed up the delivery), so there wasn't a ton of waiting via Massdrop. I kept them updated, and once we came to the conclusion that my package was sort of just lost; Massdrop quickly responded and made a very kind, one-time exception to refund my transaction in full, so I didn't lose out on a ton of money. Refund was processed promptly and was back on my card before I even checked! Kudos to Massdrop on this; have had only great experiences with them, this far. I'm now back to participate in this drop once more, as I'd really like this kit!
