Well, I'm plagued by the same issue. Here where I live, all connectors are
Ø3.5mm while the FreeRunner has Ø2.5mm.
I talked with Nikolaus about this topic already, and it's not that easy.
The board wouldn't fit into the case anymore,
so you would have need for a new one too...
Good thing is, that we also are already planning the gta05, and there I'm
organizing an amazing, cool and totally innovative new chassis in addition.
Can't tell too much as long as the specs are not CC-License, but:
It's TOTALLY cool ;-D

best regards
