For users with basic soldering skills that wish to save money on postage the MANTA control board is a great option. All that is required is to solder a 16 pin header (included) onto a 1602 LCD which can be bought cheaply from eBay. For programability you can also purchase a FTDI basic breakout from eBay.
The reason the board alone is offered is that when the control board and LCD are assembled the unit is too thick to be sent as International Letter Post and must therefore instead be sent as Parcel Post. Domestic parcel post prices start at $8 and above the $20 mark for international.
Please Note: Free shipping items are sent by International Letter Post. This is an extremely reliable service that RCTA has been using for years. Be aware that this service is not tracked. If you require a tracked service please purchase from the Postal Options category. All orders are photographed at time of postage along with the postal receipt. This image will be emailed to the customer within 24hrs of postage. If you do not receive such an email please check your Spam/Junk folders. Customs forms are typically written as "Circuit for R/C toy", marked as a "Gift" with a value of between $10 - $20 AUD.
