Yes, we have checked our stock and we have indeed packed 2 x (pack of 10) 10k resistors instead of 1 x (pack of 10) 1k resistors and 1 x (pack of 10) 10k resistors.
This is because Mr Magoo was doing the kit packing that day and didnt notice the difference between red and orange. We have remedied all kits now, thanks for pointing it out.
If you post your order number, or give us a call or email, we will send you down the missing components

Generally, i'm delighted with the kit; it comes with everything you need.
It was due for next day delivery, but took 2 days. This seemed to be the fault of the courier though. Also, i have duplicate set of resister components (2 x 10k and no 1k), and the potentiometer with knob and thermistor both appear to be missing. I think, although have not double checked, that everything else is there.

The most conventional kit for Arduino ever! Everything i need to keep my self entertained this Half term.

Kit comes with everything needed to start working with the MEGA2560.
i was pleasantly surprised that it not the usual tiny breadboard you get with it, its a big breadboard with posts that can be tied to an external PSU.
Pretty nice and well thought out,
when you consider the price of the processor on its own, theres quite a saving
All prices are in GBP.
