Great little product
Bought this for my son's 11th birthday, the YouTube instructions were awesome. Took about 3 hours for him(us) to solder it all together and he loves it and the full experience of making it. FYI make sure you trim the header pins on the back of the screen quite short, or buy some extra nylon spacers, as the solder touches the battery when the back is ******* on and shorts the screen. Other than that, brilliant, arrived quickly too.
