MaxZhou88’s Digi RetroBoy Prototype

The Revo K101 Giveaway Continues, Another Winner Announced!

OK, there is going to be a slight change to the program. You can put this down to a breakdown in communication, and I apologise for this, but thankfully the outcome is a happy one.

First of all, thanks to everybody who suggested names for the K101, the sheer amount of responses really took me by surprise and the guys in China had a very tough time choosing their favourite, hence the delay in the announcing the winner… sorry about that!
