I am in Australia. ¥ 68 is around $13 AUD. One quarter the price of the official pyboard :)
How much would economy overseas shipping cost?

I buy a lot of parts from AliExpress, with 20-45 day free shipping. The stores must be getting bulk postage discounts. The cheapest I can economy send a parcel from Aus to China is around $11 AUD.

AliExpress requires enterprise registered users, I can't register it now.

FEDEX and SF Express is much expensive, over 40 AUD. I will look for other cheap Express.

I just received a PYB Nano v1.1, via Aliexpress. I am trying to hook it up to my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.13) using a USB micro cable. How can I communicate with it?

Any help would be appreciated. What I have come across said to use the terminal (similar to Windows PuTTy or a linux shell) and execute /dev/tty.usbmodem*. There is no tty.usbmodem device in /dev.

Regards,

PYB Nano usage is same as PYB V10, you need a terminal to running REPL.

PYB nano V1.1's firmware:

PYB nano v2 is also out, upgrade MCU to STM32F411, add 8M byte flash, so it can store more files.

I have put the PYB Nano board at taobao in China, with very low cost price.

If you are outside China, express charge will be expensive than board.

5he link says the product does exsist anymore.

Are you going to be selling on aliexpress??

I googled for it and found it on eletrocrow see https://www.elecrow.com/micropython-dev ... ython.html

The link above is not from me, the board is less than $9, but postage is much higher.

The new taobao link is below:

I would be interested in your V2 STMF405 board as a replacement for my blue-pill STMF103 for my projects written in C. I don't care if it takes over a month to arrive via cheap postage (this is how long I have to wait for a blue-pill of aliexpress). Can you give me an idea of shipping price to Australia?

You may try transshipment service, buy something in taobao, then transshipment to Australia.

AliExpress is a lot easier to use for English speaking buyers. Using Taobao with Google Translate is extremely difficult. Last time I tried using Taobao, I ended up getting it shipped to a holding warehouse then had to pay another $50 to ship (the $10 board) to Australia.

Are you in Sydney @OutoftheBOTS_ by any chance?
