Well I'm back after a two week coding binge on a project for work.  Sheesh.

Now I can go back and play with everything OP again.  I wonder if there are any Hobby King updates?

No updates from HK yet. Originally they said production in February and then I contacted them earlier this month and they said they were still goofing off. Communication with them is not great.

As soon as I know something, it will definitely be publicized.

Alrighty then.  Long time between posts.   ::)

Hobby King ran a sale a week or so ago and I saw they had the TCB on sale so I pulled the proverbial 'trigger' and ordered two for $35 apiece.  Shipping and handling wasn't too bad at just under $8 considering they shipped from HK I think. 

The boards and accessories were well packaged and came with a printed quick start guide (from the OP site).  A quick glance at the pcb looked to me like they have replaced the MOSFETs so I am hopeful that I won't have to modify either board. 

I plan to fire up my development software and test the boards this weekend.  I'll post as I make progress.  Thanks Luke!

Long time between posts but you also skipped all the drama from this summer so just as well. Good luck on your tinkering and I will be interested to hear how you get along.
