I see this LOW COST boards long time @ taobao (lisa/M and umarin) but i will never order from this store.
Even in the pictures i can see the low quality of board assembly.
Some time it come without some connectors.

Rather than advertise here on the Paparazzi developers email list it is more appropriate to place your company URL and links on the Get Hardware page here: http://paparazzi.enac.fr/wiki/Get_Hardware
It maybe important to note (all) that these very low cost versions are using inexpensive versions of the specified parts for the inductors, crystals and other ICs. This does lower the cost of the BOM.
I can source them also from TaoBao.com and offer them for 160.00 at www.ppzuav.com. I will be sure to note they are not using the same parts as the 299.00 versions so it is undetermined if they will have the same reliability or even work properly. I will also continue to make the ones I have assembled in the USA available. Those use the exact parts specified in the BOM but cost more.
I welcome you Ralph, there is plenty of demand for Paparazzi to have many vendors. I write this to just let you know about the Get Hardware link and mention the bit about being more transparent if you deviate from the BOM spec parts. The BOM is very clear which parts to use for a good reason (so people assembling them use those parts).
PS: it is also not a good idea to use images from the Wiki on your web store to advertise without asking permission from the owner. Take your own photos and show your customers what they are actually buying.
