    Looks as if a lot of people haven't read this post properly... Cactus have very limited stock at the moment, so it could be quite some time before we can actually organise this group buy and get our hands on the items.
    If this is a problem for you, then feel free to source them yourselves :)

    Code:
    Hi guys, just had Agg approval for taking an expression of interest for the Cactus V4 group buy.
    More info here:

    Pretty good review here:
    [url]http://akikorhonen.org/articles.php?action=view&id=667[/url]
    
    Image Melbourne is the only company that I've seen posting prices:
    [url]http://imagemelbourne.com.au/store//catalog/product_info.php?products_id=109&osCsid=f4e0e4d9ddb5206a9ebe9469344a99c3[/url]
    Presumably we'd get it cheaper than that if we order in bulk and from a distributer...
    
    Please note that these are a new item and they are currently saying that they don't have a great deal of stock, [B]so could be a while before we're even able to order.[/B]
    They're also a relatively low cost item, so it may not work out worthwhile to double handle postage here in Australia between states unless we can get decent numbers.
    
    If either of these facts put you off, then by all means order your own :)
    
    So, if you're interested, let me know how many sets you want (transmitter + receiver).
    UPDATE:

    Ok, this has become a pain in the ass to format here, so I've done up an XLS spreadsheet.
    www.sight-unseen.com/downloads/cactus.xls

    Once again I'd ask everyone to check their details for me. This will be easier for me to update.

    How much are the units suppose to cost? I can't find the info on the GI website?

    If each state runs it's own group buy, do we all need to get Agg's permission or will it come under this one's umbrella?

    Looks like we've already got a bit of interest which is great.
    I'll update the first post when I can, but please be patient with me!

    Also, if you could include your city/state that would be awesome. :thumbup:

    EDIT: I think if we do it as one big group buy it'll be fine to then distribute among the states. If we end up splitting into 5-6 group buys then it would be better to ask Agg's approval on them all I think.

    Everyone up to this point is added. I'll do another update over the weekend.

    Yep guys, this is just a thread to 'test the water'.
    If we have a heap of interest (and so far it's looking good!) I'll put it to a distributer and see if we can sharpen the prices a little.

    From there I'll crunch numbers and everyone can decide if they are or aren't interested. :thumbup:

    EDIT: Have updated first post with a review and aus company pricing.
