The announcement of a new Apex and the retiring (sort of) of the old system was big news in the hobby but caused some confusion for current Apex owners worried their controllers were now obsolete and unsupported. Neptune Systems, the maker of Apex, to their credit, picked up on the chatter in the hobby and created a FAQ page to clear up some of the misconceptions they created with their announcement. It’s nice to see they listen to what hobbyists are saying and have their ear to the ground as it were.
On May 23, 2016, after seven years of continually improving the existing Apex, we announced the coming of our next generation Apex System. Many people were very excited to hear about it. Then there were quite a few of our existing Apex customers that we have unfortunately confused. We take responsibility for that unnecessary confusion and hope this FAQ will help resolve it.
