Note that I'm not trying to put people off the wonderful @exxos kit... :hide: ...just offering another option (given how fragile some of these Mega's can be).

Hmm, H4/H5 Mega has a nice ring to it, and loads of space for expansion :)

+1 for that!

Any chance of it in reality though? Sadly I doubt it, given how busy @exxos is already

Is this kit going to be available to buy, especially pre-built?

Trudie and Flashy-clock are designed as small as possible to fit the H4/5.. Same with the SEC booster and probably 50 other things.. I am hoping to get some of this stuff actually on sale in the new year.

I will do a kit, but as before (as shown in top post image) , I only supply the PCB and PLD.. I just don't have time or space to deal with any more parts. There are people on the forum who can build stuff such as @Steve . Though if you want a pre-built tested solution, wait for Trudie.
