  • I have had good luck with these boards. I think I have had one failure out of 27 I have purchased. However , you need to be aware that if your Uno, etc is already using pins 2 or 3 (e.g. motor driver board) you need to cut the pin(s) (I use a Dremel) and jumper/ reroute them to another pin(s). For example : since I'm using Serial3 on a Mega board, I rerouted X-Bee pin 2 to Mega pin 15 (Rx) and pin 3 to 14 (Tx). Also, since the headers have to be added, I printed two fixtures to hold the headers in alignment while I soldered them (I have a 3D printer). It only takes ruining a $30 motor driver board to get smarter ;)

No public wish lists :(
