Any progress about the roadmap (https://richard.milewski.org/blog/wximp/wx-imp-roadmap/). A few things are missing (wiring instructions, calibration, etc.) Thanks for the great educational project.

I've added the wiring instructions for the anemometer and some additional files to the GitHub repository. Please read the Mar 17th note here before building anything.

I'm about to do a redesign and put up a warning on the blog saying not to build this version. I've managed to kill two Imp explorer boards with this design. The problem is that the various designs for a solar shield have failed to provide sufficient protection for blown raindrops. If the humidity sensor actually gets wet, it will fail. The trick is to have sufficient air flow that when the sun is out you don't have a solar oven, but when it rains the sensors don't get flooded. I've got some ideas, but it may be another rev or two before I'd recommend building this.

That said.... I'm sure there are far better mechanical designers than I on Thingiverse! Suggestions always welcome! Check the roadmap for updates.
