The new Remote boards arrived and I found an error or two but overall they're doing what I wanted...Now the on-board USB is both battery-charging and FTDI-compatible, so trap data can be logged directly from the remote without an external FDTI module.

The external boost converter for driving the solenoid is working and I hope to find time this week to re-spin the Trap Box Board with the boost converter built-in
