I like your build. Are you also gona release the stl files or are you gonna sel it. Great work
Thanks, no plans to offer it for sale for now as it is a 5 hour print and would have to charge probably more than people would be willing to pay for a plastic case to be worth my time.

As far as the STL's it is still a work in progress so maybe sometime in the future. ;)

This looks great!! What kind of battery life do you get with a 5500mAh battery? 😁
I've just finished my milk.

I'm curious about the screen, is it a plug and play solution, being driven the same way as the 2.4 or are there changes that need to be made?

It is plug and play. Same driver, so nothing is needed except the 2.8 screen. Play's just like the MintyPi tin since I am using that image on the SD card. I will have room to use a 3.2 screen which also uses the same driver so that is what I am in the process of playing with now. :D
