    As we have said countless times, "specs can and will change". I have made the decision to make the body more "tank-like". It will be much more stout and bulletproof. The consequence is that it has gained a pound or so. We are not likely to meet our original goal of under 7 pounds. Somewhere around 8 lbs. is more accurate. I am sure that it is worth it. We'll publish a final weight in a few weeks after we make sure there are no more changes.

    We promised to keep you posted... just so you know.

    Rugged and dependable beats sleek and elegant, IMHO. I'm actually happy to hear this.

    We know you're trying to get the baby as lightweight as you can. So far so good. One pound won't be a big deal but thanks anyway for your care. Our back is in your hands and in good hands.

    I like tanks. :) Tough is good, I want the RED One to handle a beating! Not that I'm going to intentionally treat it poorly. :)

    I'll just have to take 1lb off of my weight belt I guess. I've only got 8 more lb's to play with Jim so take it easy huh?

    Hey Jim, thanks for the update, I appreciate it. I definitely want the most expensive thing I've ever purchased (except my house) to be as rugged as possible. I'm already having nightmeres about dropping Red...

    Every day we find ways to improve the project. We are looking at every detail possible to finish up the best we can. There are a million things to do and consider. If we get most of the first thousand right, we'll have a great foundation for the future.

    Jim
