Current Maestro availability? Aug 2020

Just picked up my first printer, an ender 3. After some research, I am wanting to swap the board to a Duet 2 Maestro. Clicking on all the links for US resellers as stated on the homepage, no one has the Maestro in stock? I do not really want to spend the extra $50 for a Duet 2 wifi board as I do not need all the extra features.
Any idea when the Duet 2 Maestro will be available again? I really want this board over others I have found in my research.

@yosh2000 you will likely have to wait for a release of the Duet 3 mini to get a Duet board at a lower price than the Duet2 Wifi. As far as I can see, the Maestro seems to be out of production.
For the Ender 3, you could look at the panucatt kinetica G2C which is a drop in board for an ender 3 using all the cables from the printer, which would make it a simple upgrade to RRF (at the expense of expandability). It's priced at about the price the Maestro had. Currently no RRF 3.x release is provided by panucatt though.
That's right, production of the Maestro has stopped. Its replacement will be this https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/17409/duet-3-mini-5-initial-announcement.
