There are several fully assembled panels still in stock (meaning I'll need to do the soldering if someone places an order on an assembled panel).

Pick the assembled kit option and the LCD size you want.

Not really unless you want to have access to the on board settings menu. How many buttons do you need? I can load a firmware on the panel for you that will support up to 8 buttons.

Thank you smiley , and 5-6 buttons. Also, how does the backpack connect since the lcd only has a 3-pin connection (5v, gnd, rx)

It has 5v gnd rx tx and reset to connect to Arduino and 8 pairs of button connections on board. You connect 5v gnd rx tx to arduino, and then buttons to the back pack.

LCD connects to the back pack. The back pack connects to LCD and keys. The back pack connects to arduino with 3 to 4 wires, 3 for only using LCD 4 for using LCD and keys.

Same link I posted already:

After ordering the assembled kit, just email me (you will get paypal email addressed from me) saying you want the 8 buttons firmware so I'll load it up with 8 buttons firmware and assemble it.
