    Dang it now. I was all set to order my second set of PiHats.
    Now I'll have to wait for the newer version. (Actually, I could really use the 3 outputs.)

    Any idea as to approximately when?

    No, because it's up to Dave to redesign the Falcon pihat. I wrote the driver for the third output and submitted it to FPP devs.

    I don't expect it anytime soon but if you can hold off he might pull it out before the Season gets too close.

    Define, "too close".

    Right now patience and waiting are not my strong suite. I'll try to improve.

    curious....on the third output. What pin are you using? Jer wrote the original code and it used the two hardware PWM channels, so how are you doing the third? I could spin my board pretty quick if there is interest.
