I was just on their website and found this awesome module https://www.adafruit.com/product/3458.
It says you can buy one of their 3.7v 500 mah batteries and it already had a connector to plug in the battery and is compatible with a USB for charging. This is the best of all worlds!!

Great idea @chinzw


#646

Im using their Proto M0, but its almost the same thing. Just make sure you buy the 3.3v hall sensors. Im using these sensors:
DRV5053OAQLPGM
DRV5053PAQLPGM

They are the same sensor, just different sensing ranges.


#647

Also can I use a 500 mah battery or does it have to be 400 mah


#648

Also do you have a link for this sensors, never mind found.


#649

You can use any mah battery you want, the bigger the better, just make sure it fits in the case.


#650

Also do I need a special PA LNA NRF24L01 module.
I’m trying to get everything from the us and this is one thing I can’t seem o find for less than $20


#651

Is anyone interested in buying magnets from me? 5x5mm obv but I bought bulk of those magnets so I can ship it to anyone in US. Just pay for shipping.


#652

anyone selling completes in eu?


#653

@solidgeek where do I find the power switch? The remote that i made uses the same as your, but I pulled it out of some old toy or something and it gone bad

No matter where I search or they never have something this small or it’s out of stock, maybe I’m using the wrong nomenclature for this type of switch


#654

Just get a spst switch from any electronics store.


#655

can i use this adafruit module https://www.adafruit.com/product/3406 so i only have too get one nrf24 module for reciever?


#656

thanks, but the normal switches are too big, maybe in this remote the larger switches are used, in mine its about half of an H-H switch


#657

They’re called mini slide switches.


#658

Thanks, exactly this one https://www.pololu.com/product/1408

I will see if i can find locally


#659

anyone have any micro switches willing to give to me and i pay postage. im in the US


#660


Can I connect this to arduino and use it as ppm and then use a separate uart cable


#661

No, that wont work


#662

do I connect the uart and ppm to arduino or just uart?


#663

Also where can I get a uart cable? Do I need any resistors between arduino and vesc?
