First Bootup of 3.2!

A project log for LZRTag - Flexible DIY Lasertag

An easy to build, program, modify and use AVR and ESP based Lasertag system for everyone!

Aw hell yeah <3 

Aisler took its time with delivering the PCBs, so this project log is coming up a little later than expected.
However, as usual, the wait time was more than worth it! The PCBs are of the usual high quality I've come to know from them, and the stencil with it was perfect as well.

Perfect solder paste application, partly thanks to the good stencil, partly thanks to the good stencil-holder I was allowed to use~

I had just gone through an exam, so sitting down and being able to take some time to solder the Lasertag was ... Actually kinda tranquil.
It certainly began to rapidly eat up any sense of time I had left, so I was able to, somehow, sit through an entire morning and afternoon just soldering away :>

So, enough of the talk, let's share some pretty pictures!

...

Ok I might have forgotten to take more pictures.
I did, however, not forget to write a detailed assembly guide over on GitHub :> 

Here's the awesome extra: Everything worked first try!
Seriously, how often does that happen? It did make me rather proud, in a way :>
The only thing that went wrong was the fact that I didn't have enough PMBT2222A transistors, which means that for now not all weapons have their vibration motor running, but for initial programming etc. that's no problem at all.

A few minutes after finishing up their solder, I was already able to get some lovely blink action running~

Gha, just look at these precious little babies! 
The fourth one is functional too, I just didn't have a USB cable or LiPo at hand to run it.

So yeah, Revision 3.2 is finally underway at basically full speed. We've even already started adjusting the 3D casing for the new navigation switch at the side, and will be printing them out either today or tomorrow, so stay tuned! 

It's going well :>

Great project!   Is 3.2 the fix to the PCB issues mentioned earlier in your logs?

  Are you sure? yes | no
