On a more serious note, those really are hobby electronics that have a questionable robustness when sitting nicely on a table for more than a few hours ... when shaken and stirred during a launch, would you trust them even with the most inexpesive nanosat?
IANARS, but as an automations engineer I know that you wouldn't use such equipment on a factory floor on Earth, let alone in space ...
I happen to know for a fact that an arduino can operate successfully through a suborbital rocket launch. Granted, that was a payload where failure was acceptable, and I would have had serious doubts about the rocket if its electronics were similar.

(I still agree this is one of the multiple red flags this company is showing)
