Maybe the release version will look more like that.
It's probably cheaper to have a vertical configuration for prototyping.
@Thread: There has been a lot of criticism here concerning the ACA500 in particular.
In the interests of healthy debate, it is worth airing your views on the bad features of these new products as well as the good. But please bear in mind that an avalanche of sniping criticism may deter Jens in future from sharing his plans with us during the development phase.
A little more tact wouldn't go amiss sometimes. Thankyou.
