The problem I see with this is that I anticipate there will be significantly more members that want these pre-pinned; even if it's easy to pin bare wires they still just want to be able to unbox it and plug it in without any extra work, and they would be willing to wait and pay a bit more for that privilege.
I was playing devils advocate with the options myself, but if people have to pay up front now and still have to wait the 15 weeks thats also going to change the initial quantities too.
I figured it to be if 1/2 the people drop off the list we will still be over the 720 mark, making them 8$ still for the barebones fans, plus shipping and whatever, but this way would be much cheaper and timely and give more headway for a possible second order.
Does Chipp or whoever have the distributer info? Are they talking to them too?? They could contact them if they havent yet and just use my initial inquires to finalize pricing for them to be shipped to whoever is gonna distribute them.
