Even late I wish you all a happy new year and now we're closing this long call for review.
I have to thank you all your interest and proposals in the comments, and here are the winners of the great MegaPi board:
I hope all you enjoy the new parts. I'm trully looking forward for your reviews. Here below we leave the call for review just in case someone has arrived late. There will be more call for reviews soon, don't stop posting your great content and see you soon!
Hi again dear LMR members!
Are you designing a robot or project to drive 10 servos and 8 DC motors/ 4 stepper motors simultaneously? No problem! With MegaPi it’s easy and fun!
MegaPi is a fusion between a very compact Arduino Atmega 2560 version and drives up to 10 motors! Not enough? It’s stackable with RaspberryPi! Do you want more? It’s so flexible that you can create from a 3D printer to a slow motion camera, or an autonomous robot.
Some of its features are:
Very easy to program with Arduino IDE.
Four motor driver interfaces for adding encoder motor driver and stepper motor driver, and thus to drive DC motors, encoder motors and stepper motors
One wireless communication interface for adding Bluetooth module or 2.4G module
Ten servo interfaces which enable the board to drive up to 10 servos at the same time
Two high-power MOS driver interface which is able to drive devices with a maximum current of 10A. Maximum output: DC 5V 3A
I/O Pins: 43
Analog Input Pins: 15
Serial Ports: 3
I2C Interface: 1
SPI Interface: 1
MegaPi integrates easily with Raspberry Pi to have the power of the two: https://github.com/Makeblock-official/PythonForMegaPi

If you want to get a chance just tell in a comment:
That you are a member for more than 3 months, with at least 2 publications of enough quality (it is at the discretion of LMR to decide that quality, but they are fair, just try your best!).
Link your publications in your comment please.
If you got any piece in the past for review from LMR, you have finished that review already. Please link your review(s), so we can check it ;-)
What would you like to do with this MegaPi.
That you will publish your review within one month after receiving your MegaPi. (You can publish several posts about the MegaPi, but the main one should be within one month).
Use the “Tips on writing reviews at Let’s Make Robots”, and use pictures and videos in their review.
Consider using the videos with LMR intro and end. Not compulsory.
And just in case anyone reading your review want to get one MegaPi, you agree to mention in your review that RobotShop is a distributor of this product with this link MegaPi at the beginning and end of your review (it is the least you can do for them right? ;-) ).
Publish your review within one month after receiving your MegaPi.
Between all contestants LMR will select 5 LMR members who will receive for free and review this nice board. Good luck!
