Personally looking at those (bad)pictures of the RF section soldering, would never use those on any application. Have had couple of those cheap Zigbees from china, but they failed almost same time after in months after installation to system.
Ill just keep the good work up!

Hi Steve,

The ones I am talking about are in my link they are not the digi zigbee radios, but a cheaper version using the cc2530 chip.
