I understand that all shields may not be compatible with the "Funduino Mega 2560 R2", but are the main sensor, motor, and ethernet shields compatible? Thanks.

The Funduino Mega 2560 R2 is identical to the Arduino Mega 2560 R2. The Mega 2560 R3 has some extra pins on it that some of the newer shields utilize. 

 

I'm actually out of the R2 version and have R3 on order. I'm not sure which shields are incompatible with the R2, but I'd recommend buying the R3 since some of the newer shields need the extra pins on it. I'll have them in stock in around a week.

You will have the Funduino Mega 2560 R3 not the ARDUINO one right? Thanks!

Correct. But they are exactly the same, only made by different manufacturers.

No problem! They were supposed to get here already, but my supplier took longer to ship than anticipated. The current ETA is this Friday evening, according to the DHL tracking.
