I need to purchase just the 30x30 fan for my first kit and the second one coming in May? Can’t find anything on just the fan?

Send Kite and email so you can order just a fan.

RE: Fan

The case is enclosed and there are other components that generate heat in there.. if you're ok with the speed being throttled when temp gets high (frame rates drop) and that you would have to power it off and let it cool down before going back to normal, then that's fine.. otherwise put a fan in and not have any problems ;)
If so, and then, Id like to order just the fan.
Tell me how can I order just a fan, please.
Thanks Kite!

Send me an email about the fan and include your destination country and how quickly you want it sent (standard air mail is £3 and tracked is £9), the fan is £9.

RE: Board only
The accessories compared to the main board are very cheap so there isn't much saving going just for the main board and i make them all as full kits so they are sold as full kits :)

So i had this idea, like in the 1UP borad from china would it be possible to have it run from 4x AA like an original would and have a smaller battery in the cartrige bay?
Don't know if it would be feasible or just raise the price in astronomical hights.
1UP uses a 3way switch wich looks stupid on the side so maybe the batteries could charge the lipo back up, i just came to this ideo because i am allways on the go but not everywhere are chargers but AA batteries are common.
Don't know where else i could ask this.
In the past, I had very poor results running a sole Raspberry Pi from AA batteries or NIMHs.
It usually was not able to boot, even with additional capacitors.
LiPo really is the best way to go.

Okay need to rethink my build here, i only thought it was possible because 1UP did it but now that you said it i never saw some one use this fuction.

So if I understand the guide correctly the only two soldering steps are the back buttons and filling in the holes for the back board spacer?
