    Don’t bother for the moment: in the 4 months since it was launched, perhaps 2 people have found kits (1 eBay, one off their blog), even the commercials have only just started getting it working and that’s with big teams working fulltime. Part of the reason is that it takes around a month for the ordinary joe with a Darwin (previous generation) to make the parts, so November was for him, December was Christmas so no time in the shed, January brass-monkeys and the rest of the time trying to get the electrics to work on his own one.
    Leave it six months and you might stand a chance.
