So I’m always willing to try new board manufacturers, and it seems like new ones are popping up everyday. I usually ‘test’ them out with a small prototype run of just ~10 boards or so. This time for some reason, I was so impressed with their user interface and the ‘buzz’ out there that I pulled the trigger on x100 bare boards… the price did seem a little too good to be true though, but oh well, let’s try it out!
So I got the boards in and they looked great!
The boards really do look great, but as I started looking more closely, I noticed a major problem.
So I started a Patreon page a little while back and I wanted to provide a reward to the Patrons of my YouTube channel that is tangible and something useful. I created a simple $10 reward that signs you up for what I’m calling the “Bare Board Club”. I’m always designing custom boards for the various projects I’m working on any way, so now I’ll just order a few extra for the Patrons and try to have new board designed and shipped out once a month. (Shipping is included in the $10 and International shipping works too) For each board I send out, a wiki page is created, so that when you receive the board, you’ll have all of the information you need to build the board, test it, and use it in your projects. I recently sent out the Cheater Board then there’s the RF Cheater or the Power Cheater. Be sure to check out the Patreon page for more information and keep an eye out for future videos showing off these boards. Again, all of the support is much appreciated and really helps create higher quality videos more frequently – you may have already noticed
I just created a profile up on Patreon where you can go and support my YouTube channel. This will keep me going and help create higher quality videos more frequently. Don’t worry, I’m not relying on this to make videos or anything, but it sure would help There’s a few perks in there as well so check it out – you could get boards from me to test out! I haven’t done anything like this before, so we’ll see ho it goes.
