@ Andrew_G - Not selling kits on the website, but I can put it up if you are interested. Give me a day or two.

I'd try something like this from a spring steel clip a bit like they use on some heat sinks, but with the catching edges facing outwards, so you can squeeze them in to get them down the slots & then squeeze again to release them.

bit like these, but with some insulating material below.





Legs are wrong above, would need to be folded 90 outwards & have just enough width the fit down the slots.

It's up on my website here.
Currently only listed as a full-kit, but I plan to add just the blank PCB tomorrow, so if that is what you are really after, just wait till tomorrow.

1) Grogster - just ordered a kit
2) Chopper - sorry I lost track of your question (iPad late at night). I bought a couple of batches ages ago from Banggood - they have been great. Given Grogster's concerns about "fake" units I went for the same this time round:

Here

At least I might have all fakes or all genuine??

Cheers,

Andrew

Thanks Andrew.
They have this note so they could be fakes ( ), so good idea getting them from the same place.
Note: HC-11 cannot communicate with the HC-12, they work independently, in pairs

Hi Chopper, I think/hope that in the back of my mind it is more to do with the 11 being superseded by the 12 and that they are not backward compatible.

@ Andrew_G - Your kit will be sent today.

The HC11 is not compatible with the HC12, and the HC12 is not backwards compatible from what I have been able to read on the subject. You are PROBABLY safest buying from the same seller you have had a good run from before. That is not to say that they might start selling the fakes also, as they won't know themselves probably!

I myself have bought five from the store I always used to buy them from, and if they seem OK, I will buy another ten. I had bought two batches of FIFTY from this seller before, and they were all genuine ones. The trouble is that you never know when the fakes will turn up, as unless the sellers get their modules directly from the manufacturer.......

I have asked a few sellers if they do. Most did not reply at all, and the ones that did, were asking: 'What's your problem?', so they don't understand the question as asked anyway.

Hi Grogs,
Re the suggestion on the other thread of hooking up a MM to help the testing can you let me know of anything I need to do/not do before I assemble the kit you have just sent me - thanks (I can't think of anything given you have done all the SMD work already).
From my (limited) thinking it could be as easy as disconnecting your USB power supply and using the 5 pin female header to connect to a MM running some sort of clever test routine?

(The next version might have a three pin jumper (or even a different On/OFF/On switch) to select power from your USB OR the 5-pin header??)

Cheers, A
