You are not alone in that assessment as others have voiced that concern as well. With that having been said, best of luck to you Scribby and to those that have been waiting around for the PCBs to be made and/or the second production run of the 2B Catleap. Yall have put forth an amazing amount of work to bring both of those to fruition.

The Catleaps will not be branded anything other than that - Yamakasi - the Witech model designation for the Catleap - not OCN.  Just because we have asked for them and talked extensively about them being made available doesn't mean OCN needs to take them over.

Again, this is my opinion based on talking with bQvle's contact (also mine for my extra PCBs), these are a special run monitor being sold on a separate website, eBay, by third party resellers.  Why is OCN involved here?  The explanation on the thread makes no sense when one understands what is really going on behind the scenes.

Is it a money grab, potentially, by OCN?  Maybe.  I know there are ZERO legal ramifications from informing the OCN community that these monitors are for sale on a particular site - and in the case of eBay not providing a direct link.

Having read and re-read the explanation it makes me real nervous about pursuing the PCBs and at the last minute OCN saying - "Nope, we are taking it from here thank you very much."

This. Thank you.

Also, folks, please stay tuned regarding the monitors.

4 weeks into the thread and just now they decide to butt in? Oh, and I'm sure the OP of that thread is being cut in on the deal after doing 100% of the legwork, right?

Give me a break @ this blatant example of drug dealer/pimp mentality, and I'll catch you guys on a forum whose owner doesn't pride himself in unethical business practices...

Welcome to OCN. Hopefully this won't such a failure like the gentle typhoon group buy.

Thanks for all your work, it means allot to all of us who already own a catleap non 2B version. Hopefully the boards will be available at some point in the future.
I will check for updates on another forum though im out.

I'll also be posting pictures of how I did the mod against his 2B board (which has a different layout than the 2C referred to in the original pictures).

I'm sure better mod is... home made 6 ch PWM controller . It is because WLED have different voltage drop and some another reasons (some background here http://www.molalla.net/members/leeper/pwm_cc.htm ).

Could not have said it better. Going to be very frustrated if they ruin what progress was made by trying to get a money grab when OCN has no part in these monitors except was used as a place for people to congregate (for the most part isn't that what forums are?). Anyhow, here is to hoping that OCN doesn't mess it up AND they don't capitalize on us after a lot of people on this forum identified and did the leg work to find out about the OC potential of the 2B and did the leg work to contact the distributor on their own time. Keep up the great work Scribby, I definitely keep up with your progress and am looking forward to how the PCB's turn out!

Did anyone find a good way to get the Yamakasi logo off without damaging the plastic? Can the paint be dissolved with turpentine of some other chemical?
