Looking good Ian, how are you finding the MS build so far? If you hit any snags, give me a shout - I think my build is likely very similar to yours so I may well have come across some of the same issues. g-l

thanks Will, I might need your advice to set it up..... it's almost built now, just need to add the final few components and wire the daughterboard to it then it's time for the loom and programming :? :shock:

Sweet! When you add the daughterboard, solder the wires on so they exit on the same side as the components, so that it will end up sitting upside-down compared to the main board - I didn't realise this at the time but the fit will be better.
