    I've always told myself that if my Weapon Helium Monochrome didn't work out financially, I would at least be able to sell it for $35,000, but at $25,000 for a brand new one, I'm fried..
    If you bought a Monochrome camera.. then I am at your mercy.... I have said you guys have a special place in my heart and I am happy to prove it...

    So in reality... We are the ones that actually got kicked in the nuts ;)
    I've just lost faith in a company I admired since the start. I worked hard getting my Epic-M Dragon, sold that on a promise that we needed to upgrade to DSMC2 weapon bodies as that the only body that could go to a VV sensor. Bought the Weapon Helium that really was never what we thought it would be. Now I'm left paying for a camera that has dropped so much if I handed back through finance I would walk away from years of investing and supporting RED with a couple of grand or less.

    I backed the Hydrogen Ti from day one and really as I feel now I just want out from everything. You can't please everyone, I know that but honestly I feel disappointed.

    But I am a bit concerned about my WeaponMG. RED is no longer offering a 6k Dragon Sensor...

    Do we get Firmware updates? Do we get repairs?

    I really love my WeaponMG 6K Dragon!

    Hey
    This one hurts and Monstro is even further out of reach.
    Many of us have become used to crazy upgrades and to be honest in many cases give aways with crazy “treasure hunt” style events.

    This move seems important to RED moving forward.

    If y’all want RED to support us, we need to show support.

    And keep a open mind. Never know what treasure chest awaits around the corner.

    NJ, even though Jarred clearly states the math will drive you nuts, so don't try...

    If you take your car you purchased in 2016 back to the dealer, is he going to say it is worth what you paid for it in 2016 when you trade it in?

    Brent,

    To be fair the page says nothing about how to get to Wep-H or VV from Weapon MG. I've re-read the page four times over and the only thing I see for Weapon MG is to step down to Gemini. However, after closing the page and thinking about it for a few minutes I'm guessing the path for MG owners is something like this:

    WEAPON RED DRAGON 6K (Magnesium) >>>> DSMC2 GEMINI 5K S35 Sensor + Board Upgrade for $6,950.......... then after that is complete, you would pay for an additional sensor swap of $9,500 to go from Gemini to Wep-H? (Total of $16,450 for upgrade to Wep-H from Wep-MG)

    That's about the only way I can think of that makes sense based on what's listed. So back to my original statement, there is no clear path and any clarity you could provide would be appreciated. It isn't as if I'm just shirking the posts you've all made. I just don't see where it is spelled out.

    It's all awesome.

    I gotta say though that the GEMINI price drop is a surprise for many. Makes S-W really not that viable.
