Re: Liath's GBZ - First build questions

Don't let an expensive Tinkerboy board be your first attempt at soldering. Find some broken electronics and practice de-soldering and soldering it's through-hole components first. Or get a cheap ebay electronics kit on ebay for practice. Or practice solding resistors to perfboard.

Re: Rodocop's 19th GBZ

Re: accessing sd card from usb
