Next summer? Out of funding? I would not take that bet if I were you, this is far from throwing shit against the wall to see if something sticks this. This is just more public than the other guys and it is still the least expensive way of doing it if you take a moment to research the alternative.
SN4 will be up there testing not too long from now if not delayed
I don't think the plan is bad they might not have the highest skills on the ground to make these cheap parts work.
