Recently, I decided to try a few retrocomputing projects. This video is part 1 of the series of Z80 retrocomputing videos where I purchase a kit called the RC2014 and assemble it. I found the RC2014 on Tindie, a website that serves as a marketplace for makers. I chose this kit because of its simple clean design and room for expansion on the backplane. The kit was very easy to assemble, and I was able to git it up and running quickly. I plan on using this backplane design as a basis for developing some of my own boards. For more of my electronics videos, see

The TRS80 color computer you had was not a 6502 (which is the Apple II brain child and designed by MOS Technology), your color computer was a Motorola 6809E, and they were different. Otherways, thanks for sharing your kit.

Thanks. 6809 sounds familiar. It's been a long time since I had the CoCo.

I ordered the same kit because of this video, really looking forward to receive it.
