I really want to take the ESCape to the next level and I am a bit bored of making it myself. So want a professional pcb assembly which will result in a faster, bigger batch and also cheaper.
For this I would need at least 100 made, now if there is interest we could make this happen.
At this point I am still looking for the right factory and I’m not sure about the final price, but i want it to be between $160-170 (£113-120) for a complete unit without shipping.
Do not send any money yet, this is still in an early stage and the final design of the housing might be different (or not) to the current version.
I will update this with more info as soon as possible.
How many units would you be interested in?

This ESCape will be identical to the ones I have been making with the exception of the nRF (wireless) circuitry not being populated.
Two options will be available: single and dual housing. Single version will be similar to what you have seen previously:
I will try to make it full aluminium housing if the quote I get is fair. Like this:
Dual will look like this: (note: dual might have an increased value of £10 per housing.)
Transfer of £85 / unit (value that I will get) now, then once I am ready to ship your units transfer the rest of the amount.

Very low transfer fee https://transferwise.com/pricing and real exchange rates.
After you fill the form I will email you with the payment details.
