How fragile is the main board? If I leave my soldering Iron on for too long (3-5 seconds) will it break? Just curious. Thanks!

It depends on whether or not you have a temperature controlled iron and what you have your temp set at. If you have a cheap iron that heats up to 800f+ you will melt those pads right off. Now, with my temperature controlled Weller I can leave my iron on those pads for a long time at 600f and not cause any damage.

I'm new to the minty pi idea and actually Raspberry pi in general. For my first project, I was looking to do a mintypi for a competition at my college was wondering if there might be a way to get one I noticed that they were all sold out and that the pole was closed, unfortunately. :(

I'm also new to the idea of making a minty pi. But I love your premade pcb kits. I would be very interested when you do a v3 kit. I'll keep an eye on these boards. Thanks for all the good work you've done so far!

Nothing beats the nostalgic feeling of not only play snes, gba, gbc etc etc on the go, and also to build it :D

Can't wait for the V3 batch to be available, definitely keeping my eye on this.
