Nice board! I checked out your site, you are very committed.

Do you have a schematic available so that we can see how you implemented the 5500?

@vcc_gnd Looks good. When can we buy it? Nice work on the F411 mini too.

I added micropython support for some of your other boards:

vcc_gnd,

Do you sell your boards directly outside Taobao?
Taobao is a Chinese site and I'm not sure if they sell/ship outside China, I can't navigate site in Chinese?
There are agents that will buy from Taobao and ship but charge commission and relatively high shipping fees.

I know that some boards like STM32F407 mini are sold on Aliexpress and ebay, but much more expensive when compared to Taobao.

Taobao offers consolidated shipping, but with the site only in Chinese, placing orders using Google translate is very cumbersome.
Many Taobao vendors offer free local shipping, so you only have to pay the agents warehouse + shipping fees.
Otherwise, you're paying double shipping and waiting up to 30 days ... twice.

AliExpress is significantly easier to use for the non-Chinese speaking, and often small items are sent direct with free shipping.

@vcc_gnd it would be great if you opened an AliExpress store! :D
Lots of your boards are already being resold on there, such as ACELEX, Hennybig Fish Store, Great vendor, sincere girl Store.
