My only thought, whilst waiting for this highly anticipated upgrade to arrive, is that it would be great to have a modular design, where the main board is pre built but instead of the four/five buttons (Red, Left, Right, Select & Contact) there were two pin sockets. The display to have a multi pin socket. The IR detector to have a socket. My reasoning behind this is that as the prebuild comes at the moment it is perfect for a standalone unit, but for anyone who needs to bury the board and just have access to the display, buttons & Receiver it requires a fair bit of desoldering and resoldering.
Don’t get me wrong, this unit is fantastic as is, I’m just spitballing for the more intricate prop builders. Thank you Michael for bringing this to the masses.
This is brilliant news indeed. I will hold off my build until then. Intending to use on/off toggle switches replacing the 4 wires for robustness and resetability. Will the new system include LCD or LED or even better BOTH? Also assume this will be a whole new buy and not an existing hardware upgrade?
