  • @DrAzzy Which boards are we talking about? The cheap ones or WiFi? I have the prototypes for each back here now, but I need to get my act together a bit and start testing/developing so they're ready for Seeed.

    @d0773d On the WiFi, this was asked above, but because the WiFi module is stuck on the back, it makes surface-mounting it to a board very difficult. Since the castellations add a bit to the cost I'm going to leave them off and pre-install pins.

    On the cheap board, I'm afraid they may get left off too. Not just price, but it makes it harder to produce them in sets of 5 (which was the original idea) - not least because there are pins all the way around - so you can't just mill all the way around the PCB or the board will fall off it :)
