Yep, i have tried to use existing, well functioning, reasonably priced parts whenever possible. That's the road i like to go.

Looks nice but it also looks like it's made from "parts I know" rather than optimizing for cost which is understandable when making a prototype.  I look forward to the release of the design to see how people modify it. :)
