Hello all done !for now
Part 2 Done ,and working as hoped .

PiZero and a RedBear WiFi/Bluetooth Hat Flashlight Case Project !



I soldered the PiZero header on ,and then decided to solder the Redbear directly to the Pizero pins so it would fit into the Flashlight case , the wifi and Bluetooth worked out of the box, No terminal commands necessary ...
now just a matter of deciding what to do with it ,,maybe get some Bluetooth speaker and go mp3 player ,or use it for Retropi ,, or both even ..
I need to add correct info into config .txt for the 5" lcd to work correctly ,works fine on my uncompleted piTop

well the farther I get the more I think ,WHY,,, wifi works just fine ,,but so would have a usb wifi dongle ,,, Bluetooth detects my bluetooh device and connects but will not play ,I though it might play music through a Bluetooth speaker ,exact message I forget ,but basically telling me no device drivers I think ... I will have to find a new use for it I guess

If Bluetooth was something that people wanted on the new Pi3, why the hell is it so hard to get it to work, and when you do,next time you boot a Pi and go to use it its not working and one has to start all over again getting it to work ...example, paring need to be done each time ,,and it dosnt always fine my speaker ,,,, pulseaudio doesn't start each time you start the pi, it need to be started in command or run ???anoing

Pi Zero with a RedBear IoT pHAT WI-FI and Bluetooth ,installed into a 1980's
Duracell flashlight , WI-FI works great ,having issues getting the Bluetooth to work ,gets detected but hard to pair ,making it work is ! part of the fun/frustration , I guess

Just the start of a PiZero and a RedBear WiFi/Bluetooth Project !

cleaning up after a large flea Market at the church were I work, I found the perfect PiZero case, A 1980 Duracell Flashlight {for what i wanted to do with my wifi PiZero } ,and if I soldered my new RedBear wifi pHAT directly to the Pizero it would all fit inside the flashlight ,,,I use a pair of side cutters to remove a lot/Few pieces inside the flash lite to make it fit...
edit--
I finished this project and it worked as I had hoped it would ,,
