I can't provide a straight answer to this at the moment. We're getting some of the final boards back in the next few weeks but those are going to be consumed by developers, space companies who need to test them and promotional partners. It will be announced as soon as we know. Sorry I can't be more specific than that, but don't worry you will be able to get them.

Thanks for the quick response. Are you able to divulge the model numbers of the sensors being used so that we can start taking a look at the data sheets in preparation?

I'd also find the details of the various sensors being used very helpful, especially the accelerometer/ magnetometer.

Since the Astro Pi is now "live", I wanted to ask, if there are some news about the sensors. I'm especially interested, which air humidity sensor is on the board (since I played around with a number of DHT11 and DHT22 sensors and they are not the most accurate ones).
And of course it would be very interesting, to buy an Astro Pi board as an individual :-)
Best regards

Thank you very much - exactly what I'm interested in.
