    Due to high demand, the Mayfly board and Starter Kit are sold out of our Amazon storefront. We’re working to replenish the inventory as soon as we can, which will probably be some time in August. Amazon removes the item from their search results when there is no inventory, but rest assured that the Mayfly and Starter Kit are still being produced and will reappear on Amazon as soon as they receive more boards from us, which have been ordered from the manufacturer. I’ll post another update here when the boards become available for purchase again.

    Our Amazon inventory is back up and running again. Some of you have noticed and already ordered some boards and kits. We should be able to keep the storefront stocked unless there are a lot of large purchases. If you know you’re planning to order more than a dozen boards soon, I’d appreciate a heads up so that I can plan our inventory accordingly.

    Also, if you purchase any of our items you’ll notice that now all of the packages have a warning sticker on them stating the potential for cancer risk. This is a requirement by the California Proposition 65 that goes into effect this week that requires any product sold in the state that contains certain chemicals must have a warning label on the product, as well as in the catalog listing. So you’ll find a sticker on each item we sell, in addition to the Prop 65 statement on the Amazon listings. This is because all 4 of our products contain printed circuit boards, and there are a few chemicals used in the production of all circuit boards that requires us to use the Prop 65 statement. It’s nothing to worry about, we are just meeting the new labeling requirements necessary for selling items to anyone in the state of California.

    Hello, great to see inventory on Amazon.
    Is the board rev0.5 or rev0.5b.?
    The current board on amazon shows a rev 0.5 – so I’m checking. Seems to me the rev0.5b would support a Cell phone in the Xbee skt with the new rev 0.5b power routing option. I’m auditing to see if I could use the new XB3-C-A2-UT-001 Digi CATM/NBIOT modem (Digikey $69). The CAT-M1 is new – but should provide quicker connection which is lower power and greater distance https://www.u-blox.com/en/lte-cat-m1

    For more than a year now, all boards, either the ones bought separately or as part of the starter kits, are the latest v0.5b. The only difference between the .5 and .5b is the power options for the bee socket via jumper SJ13 to give you the option of powering the bee socket either from 3.3v Vcc of the board (default) or directly from the LiPo socket if you cut the trace and add some solder to jump it to the LiPO setting.

    I know I’ve posted in the forum about the change between versions, but I just noticed that it isn’t noted on the Mayfly jumper settings webpage, and the photo is of the much older v0.3 board. I’ll try to update those soon. Same thing with the Amazon photos, I’ll have to update those when I get a chance to take and edit new photos of the latest boards. I’ve just been too busy building and deploying new stations this summer, and keeping up with everything required for testing, prepping, and shipping all the new boards to Amazon.

    Fantastic. Amazon pic silk screens says 0.5. Thats a great change to be able to power directly from the LiPo

    Hi to all of you,

    I am writing from Greece/Europe. I have tried to purchase the Mayfly but Amazon does not deliver this or the starter kit to Greece. Is there any thought for Mouser delivery channel ? In case I cant find anyone to deliver this Is there any possibility of the schematics (Gerber files) of the PCB ? along with the BOM ?

    Kind Regards,
    Dimitris
