Thanks guys.  We're looking at making maybe 50 of these a year (for zero/low profit educational tools) and would like built in USB jack and voltage regulator.  The 2009 with solder pads instead of pin jacks would be perfect.  Is there anything like that?

Sorry, I'm working too many hours (and running a biz).  We want educational users to be able to hack the flow controller, so probably we will stick with the 2009--we want the unit to be very accessible.

All will be in a box, but with easy access for students/users to get in a rewire things.

You might use something like below with the rbbb kit to have USB access when needed, then unplug when not needed.

Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)

Many thanks Zoomkat, that might be the ticket; some of our users won't want to hack or even connect with USB, so we can use non-USB Arduinos for that model, and your suggestion for USB people.

And it was a real problem to cut through the enclosure for a full size USB connector, the mini one would be much easier.  :)
