FeatherRemote and SmartRemote

remote

#426

Is there going to be a second batch sometime? Interested in purchasing the basic remote.


#427

I ll get some new parts in the next days for testing… then we ll see.


#428

I wrote a new Library for Arduino to implement UNITY Support :grimacing:

I guess @sofu will confirm later that we have UNITY support in the feather remote for telemetry data.

We did a lot of big fixes the last days! I recommend everyone to do the update! Described in the manual or with my team viewer support!

I also added the TEMP page where I can check your motor and FET-temps as well :heart_eyes: maybe we add a alarm for high temperature?


#429

Can confirm telemetry is a go from the Unity! Works great :smiley: awesome job @StefanMe


#430

I’m still waiting for mine to arrive :frowning:


#431

??? What does the tracking say?


#432

I’ll pm you so the thread doesn’t get cluttered.


#433

Any updates on release of PCB files or schematics?


#434

Schematics are not available in the manual :slight_smile:


#435

Then sounds like it’s the time for reverse engineering :slight_smile:


#436

I ll release the PCB Files as soon as I have tested them enough. But u need to be able to handle with 0603 SMD parts…



#437

Ah ok fine.
Duh, I’m profesionally soldering SMD prototype PCB xD
That’s what I wanted to do, replace with SMD, these sticking out THT components were triggering me.
And these TO220 mosfets flapping in the breeze are going to crack on the joints/pads because of the vibrations, you’ll get returns on these :frowning:

What PCB software do you use?

Why not fit all functions of the big receiver into small PCB?
You just raise that feather dev module up a bit and you can fit a lot of components there.
EDIT: No wait there’s no space for these fat connectors xD


#438

EasyEDA

Next step is to bring the SAMD21 Chip as standalone onto the PCB… but that’s a future project.

I want to keep the receiver modular… many people want to try out the basic version and upgrade with the extension board.


#439

Will wait for them, but if you have spare PCBs–unpopulated ones are fine too-- can I buy them from you?


#440

No sorry I ll not sell them. just order them by JLCPCB.com for 2 doller (10 piceces) + shipping


#441

Oh yeah excluding the adafruit module from the BOM would decrease the price and allow you to do things better like add low pass filter after the step-up converter so RF module/IC gets better.
Also pls use type-c port…

Where’s the BOM of all the parts?
Can’t find in the manual nor first post…


#442

Its in the Manual (newly added)
Just scroll to the bottom!


#443

It’s empty


#444

A voice in the distance screams: “click it”


#445

OMG WHY YOU DID THIS LIKE THAT GEEK…
Pls just put the bom in there.
