Finally, after several weeks delay, the new PCBs for the Mini Sumo Robots (see “Zumo Robot with WiFi and GPS”) arrived, and best of all: first tests are all running fine :-).

- Simpler and easier connection to the motor and quadrature encoders
- Bluetooth and nRF24L01+ connectors on the base board

Hopefully, everything comes together as planned ;-).
Happy PCBing :-)
