Very cool. Early quick question: is the gen 1 monitor yoke compatible with the gen 2 monitor? Or do you get any kind of deal for returning the gen 1 yoke towards a gen 2 yoke?

Ditto to what Will already asked. In addition, I couldn't help but notice you didn't mention the price of the Gen 2 - 6.5" 4:3 monitors. What is various prices/options/compatibility of yokes for those of us with this version? Also, are you able to quote the turnaround time for upgrades (from time of receipt of gen 1 to shipment of upgraded gen 2)?

The gen 1 monitor yoke will not fit a gen 2. The two monitors differ greatly in size. The level sensor will only work with the Gen 2. There may be a 4:3 option later, but initially only the 7" 16:9 monitor will be available. Turn around time for the upgrade will be 1-2 days, since it will be a straight swap for a new monitor.

Any pictures and description of exactly what's been done in the Gen 2?

Does the upgrade include the level sensor and yoke?

I have a 4:3 monitor. If I upgrade now, does that mean I have to get a 16:9? Or am I not eligible until the 4:3 gen 2 is announced?

Looking forward to seeing pictures!

No 4:3 initially, you would be upgrading to 16:9

The level sensor and yoke are separate, the price for the level sensor is reduced for upgrade customers.

Any pictures and description of exactly what's been done in the Gen 2?

Does the upgrade include the level sensor and yoke?

I would also wait for the 6.5 ... But it seems not to be on the drawing board right now . Only reason I bought the 6.5 was to have the level "under" my image in the black bars but if for any reason , this won't be feasable with the gen 2 , i'll just jump on the 7" wagon .
My real question is : what will Eric do ?
Cheers
