Well, I´m very happy with the piDrive I got as pledge from the Kickstarter campaign. Work nice and smooth on a 24/7 base in my personal webserver.

Unfortunately the maker of the Kickstarter campaign no longer response, there webpage has not seen any updates for month, almost a year, and there shop shows the piDrive anytime out of stock.
So I fired up my layout tool and put together my own piDrive design, similar to the original one, also based on PL-2571B.
Finally my Kickstarter pledge, the piDrive from Gungho Labs, arrived today. While I was very excited I took the chance to install the piDrive to my existing Raspberry Pi server.
