Thanks for the info. Do you have a link to the 4- or 5-pin breakouts that would work? I don’t think I’m using the right search terminology and all I’m coming up with are basic ones like these. I imagine I’m looking for something with a male micro USB end on it?


#1432

These are the ones sofu used: https://www.amazon.com/Micro-Male-5-Pin-Solder-Connector/dp/B00OK8ELNA/ref=pd_sbs_147_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00OK8ELNA&pd_rd_r=TRC6K560GY88YB8JY6BH&pd_rd_w=QR00U&pd_rd_wg=Zeeqp&psc=1&refRID=TRC6K560GY88YB8JY6BH

They only need 2 wire apparently. I’m not gonna link mine since this appears way easier than dealing with my 3 wire solution


#1434

Hey @solidgeek, can I make remotes and sell them on the forum?


#1435

Finally I can start. Now I just need to find the time :laughing: Really curious to see how it goes.


#1436

Hey everyone, I got the usb type C female port and it works fine. As you can see in I should be able to shave off half the board and solder directly to the G and than to the V spot to get the 4.74V


Now if I really wanted to I could attempt to solder onto the tiny pins to really minimize the size but we’ll see


#1437

Question, when I try to uploadthe trasmitter.ino file I get this error
Arduino: 1.8.5 (Windows 7), TD: 1.41, Board: “Arduino Nano, ATmega328P”

C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\ESkate\FireFly Remote\nRF24-Esk8-Remote-development\transmitter\transmitter.ino:15:21: fatal error: U8g2lib.h: No such file or directory

#include <U8g2lib.h>

                 ^

compilation terminated.

exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino Nano.

It seems the U8g2lib.h library is missing. Do you know how to solve it?
Moreover in this sketch I do not see the raw where @SeeTheBridges advices to change the pipe sequence. Is It automatic now?
Thx


#1438

You have to look for the libraries of the LCD in the ide, and yes now the pipe address you can change it in settings


#1439

Thx, I checked in IDE in manage libraries but I do not find it. Do you know what to search?

EDIT: I found U8g2 from Oliver for monocrome display, is it the right one?


#1440

Search ‘U8G2’. Be sure the change ‘type’ to ALL rather than ‘updateable’:


The pipe is on line 126 in my code:


#1441

Yeah! :slight_smile: 10 chars


#1442

I download the one from Oliver, I hope it is correct. Now it asks for the RF24.h one
Which one is it?

OK the U8g2 is correct, nice


#1443

I installed the RF24 library from TMRh20 I hope it is correct. Then the upload succeed, although I got the message
C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Arduino\libraries\VescUartControl-master\VescUart.cpp: In function ‘int PackSendPayload(uint8_t*, int)’:

C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Arduino\libraries\VescUartControl-master\VescUart.cpp:139:21: warning: converting to non-pointer type ‘uint8_t {aka unsigned char}’ from NULL [-Wconversion-null]

messageSend[count] = NULL;

                 ^

Something wrong?


#1444

I think I got that same error. I just ignored it. But maybe someone here w/ more arduino knowledge can explain it


#1445

They are just warnings, you don’t have to worry about them too much.

You can tell its a warning because of the little text in brackets at the end, [-Wconversion-null]. That means whatever code came before it triggered that warning. All warnings start with -W.


#1446

@clistpdx @halfbro thx guys! And what about the RF24 library. Did I install the correct one?


#1447

I don’t have access to my arduino stuff right now because I’m at work, but I can look tonight.


#1448

Many Thx! 10ch


#1449

It looks really good! Although I am not totally sure about the the shape, I like the wheel but the whole remote it’s a bit too long for my taste. Maybe is because I am use to the Nano-X. I may design a new enclosure for it.

Edit: First ride went fine! This thing is really nice… I will build more in next weeks, I have part left anyway :grin:


#1450

Yeah it was Solidgeeks guide. Got my parts, so gonna follow your video and see where I get. Thanks for the videos and all the research.


#1451

First time posting here, just wanna say that @solidgeek has done an awesome job.

I started my own design the other day also modelled after the boosted board but a bit more basic than this. (Simple PWM/PPM, no feedback from the VESC) all on one board.

If anyone is interested I can share my schematic/PCB files (done in Eagle) once I’m finished. I’m hoping to design the board so that it fits in the same housing without modifying the actual mechanical design.
