ˇ Still think of Prop but put on the shelf for a few. I got lucky on ebay and investted on big servos for my underpowered mini monster bot. Thinking future. I am pushing myself to learn BS2 programming pretty much alone except for your guys great help. After this, would there be any advantage to use a propeller to help control the BS2. The BS2 does have alot of I/0. I wouldn't want all the BS2 knowledge to go to waste. One language is hard enough for me now. Just trying to focus on a big picture. Seems the prop can run independent of a computer for programming and stuff and like the idea of the SD card. Mabe I am getting too far ahead of myself. Any opinions would be appreciatted as usual. Thanks again in advance.

The more you learn. the more you find you don't know. It is neverending. Confucousˇ550 BC

As usual, it all depends on what you want to do. There are already quite a few combination products ... The BS2pe Motherboard combines a BS2pe Stamp with two peripheral processors (AVRs). Andre LaMothe has just announced a new product that combines a Propeller and an AVR or PIC. A lot of existing Parallax sensors designed primarily for the Stamps use an SX processor.
