Does it work without any batteries installed? I mean, just power it with an USB-C cable.

It can be powered without batteries, but not recommended.

so, say i’d like to use it to plug into a display via micro-hdmi, would it be bad practice to leave it plugged in via USB-c adapter even with the batteries still in it? i wouldn’t want to ruin my beautiful unit within weeks of building it haha

It’s okay as long as the batteries are well mounted. Acually, using only USB-C works, we don’t recommend it because the batteries provide extra stability. So, why not? You wouldn’t notice.

sweet. thanks for clarifying.

Ok, maybe dumb question… Did the RPI-CM3 models get shipped already?

I don’t think they have shipped just yet but they are very close. This was the last we heard from @AlexDuan:

I just heard from the packing team. CM3 is now during the last stage of packing. The carrier has set up cameras over the packing line, the packing team has to upload the video footages frequently to the carrier’s server for the customs to observe the packing progress, which is a necessary move to avoid smuggling according to the carrier. That has slowed them down a bit.

What about a06 status?

Alex has already stated: first CM3, then A06 and finally A04. Still on CM3, so we all have to wait.

No. It’s the RPI-CM3 in short.

Last time I checked, they were still on producing line. As a small company, our order has to wait for schedule gap between different batches of big company’s orders. I can’t blame them for that, because as the chip shortage is still on and even getting worse, the manufacturer has done a lot to secure small orders like ours. We are like trying to go fast in a huge traffic jam.

If it’s not too much of a hassle, please post pictures of a devterm fully complete in the box and the CM3 batches ready in shipping boxes! Whenever’s possible in your own time, mind :grin:

It would at least instill more confidence to some of us here :smiley:

Of course. I’ve contacted the packing team for that. They’ll take some pics when they have time. They’ve been extremely busy for a while.

where are you guys based out of? how long is shipping to the US? are there more questions i should ask? … are the EXT module connections M.2 / cellular capable?

super excited to work with these thingies. got two for good measure… who wants to butcher some RTL-SDR / FPGA+ARM modules?!

OH! and what does the airplay feature imply? casting to apple TV or being casted to?

Hopefully i asked enough questions, but if not be easy on me, im a hero
