Indeed so, but unfortunately it's currently stuck at 'ohm' :cry:

As compared with my blue one I could quite fancy that. Could be quite fun to paint mine in psychedelic colours.

Well, YP 004 (copper) is now complete and assembled, tested, running on soak and waiting for a home.

Here's a look inside. As you can see, the layout is quite different to the earlier ones. It makes assembly a lot easier, gives more airspace above the Pi CPU, separates the mains area from the rest better, and allows the power control PCB to be made longer if more features are added.

This missive wouldn't be complete of course without a veiw of it's running copperyness :)

Well you can always console your one with the fact that blue is 'cool', and as one of the few elders it has a certain aura :angel:

And Then There Were Three

006 was being a bit difficult and had to receive 'correction' and 007 took longer to dry out than expected :shh: but they are all in line now, as you can see here.

I had to turn the flash off otherwise the screen displays were just about invisible. This of course screws up the colour, but left to right they are copper, brass and gold.

P.S. That's the cleanest my kitchen worktop has been for a while :lol:

Received 007 in the post this morning. Looks fabulous. Really great work Will.

Not powered up yet, I need to complete a couple of jobs over the next few days and then tidy up to make some space. Then it's play time :)
