Update for second order:

I've got requests for 27 boards so far. At that qty, they're $9.57 each. I'll wait another week or two at least (maybe a bit longer) to see if any more requests come in.

So far, looks like they're going to be red or white, since blue is not an option.

Red sounds great, and even at that price its still a bargain for such a well engineered piece of work from the forum.

I just signed up for 4, and if the price gets down a bit, I may go for a couple more.

Thanks!

I'm gonna give a "last call" on the second board order.... I'll give it one more week.

Second order is up to 43 boards, which comes out to $8.84 ea, plus shipping costs to get it to you.

Just out of curiosity does the second batch correct the missing ground planes or will those still need to be jumpered?
Doesn't make a difference to me just wondering.

Absolutley - I corrected those in the file as soon as they were discovered.

Update on the board order - we're up to 51 boards, which has brought the price down to $6.96 each (plus shipping to you). We're getting pretty close to the "break point".... if we hit at least 74 boards, they drop to under $5.00 each, so if you were waiting on the price to come down to order a couple more boards, now is your chance. Don't think I'll be making a third order (at least not anytime soon).
I'll be sending an email out later this week to confirm that everyone who has submitted a request still wants their board(s).

Hit the break point - order qty is 76 boards (and rising), so the boards are now down to $4.46 ea., plus shipping to you. From here on out (up to a qty of 100), they'll hover right around that price point.
Making the order on Monday - just sent confirmation email to everyone who ordered to make sure you still want your board(s).

Cheap enough, I'll grab a couple even though I've already built 2 "Wet cats" so far. :thumbsup

What colour pcb is looking like the winner so far?

Did you ever get to drawing up that diagram for the other chip? I put this project on the backburner, but I'd like to start putting my parts order together.

thanks!

i submitted a form, but i'm not sure if you'll have extra boards or not. I'll take one if you do have extra.

Actually working on an AD-80 layout now, which is what I was working on before the Aqua Puss project.
Got a great idea from jfromel to add a switch and two power planes that let you use either the MN3005 or the MN3205 on the same board. Still working it out, so it may be awhile.
