Assembly

The Bluefly varios are normally shipped as a completed circuit board with the components listed in the product page – ready for self assembly. Shipping in this form is much cheaper as it makes the package less than 20mm thick, and I can use the saved time to focus on making more circuit boards.

Assembly Service

It is possible to order the simple assembly service with the Bluetooth_USB model of the vairo. This is only available when you order a vairo. Unfortunately the assembled vario with packaging is more than 20mm thick and free shipping is not available for an assembled vario.
