Project Update – Production – February 2019
today we bring you a big update report!
Processing the first orders
I am happy to announce that we are finally processing the first b-explorer’s orders! From the #1437 to #1589. Already shipped the first units this week.
The result of the last design modifications were better than expected, improving significantly the mechanical stability and looking even better.
Please note, this pictures don’t represent the quality of the final product. All of them are prototypes and production tests.
Select your frontal panel
As promised, the variants of the front panel are finally here. Take a look and pick your favourite!
There are three variants of the front panel (different layout and button distribution). You can also choose between three different labelling options (spacesim, generic or blank).
If you have already pre-ordered, don’t worry, you will be able to choose your favourite before we ship your order (we are already in contact with the owners of the processed orders).

New BlackHog’s crew member!
Moisés, a nice guy who is going to take part in our project.
In short term he is going to support me with the production to accelerate the process, and later taking over marketing and customer support tasks.
I hope you like the news, and excuse me again for the delay publishing the monthly report, I was overloaded of work the last weeks.
I wish you a nice day!
For more information, stay tuned on Twitter! @BlackHog_BH
My name is Jason Martin. I backed your project and I’m stoked to see it progress.
I would like to request the “Model A – Spacesim labeling” for my Black-Hog Controller.
Thanks and keep those updates coming. I’ve shared your progress with friends and three have purchased based on the photo updates alone.
Thank you very much for your kind words and your support Jason.
I will contact you to confirm your front panel.
Thank you again and have a nice week!
With the blank version, are there going to be stickers available as well? I’m torn between the full Space Sim variant and the blank one at the moment.
Hi Rob, yes, the stickers are going to be included in all versions of the front plate if you pre-order (not included in “Super early bird”, “Early bird” and “Retail” orders).
Will get get into the #3600s before xmas ? 🙂
😀 Of course, don’t worry, I am increasing the production capacity.
What order numbers are you up to now?
Hi Michael, at the moment processing orders under #2000. I’m going to announce the next batch.
Hey, nice work!
Emailed with a request before I saw this post – I like the model C with generic labels.
Order 3545 🙂
Any ETA? Seems popular so far!
Hi Richard, no problem, I have already answered you email. Have a nice week!
These look fantastic. Looking forward to one 🙂 Thanks for the updates!
