This morning I've been working on a receiver board. This is the first prototype so, unlike the transmitter, it's meant to work at 5V. This way you can use your onboard BEC without any other electronics.
The board features:
- Programming header
- AT-MODE "switch"
- ESC connector
- Header for when the lights will be ready
- Another generic header, for whatever
Remember that this is a (working) prototype. The final board will be much smaller and thinner, as everything will be SMD.
You can find the board design on GitHub
Just finished carving the board. Went like a charm. 10% of the time carving, 25% drilling, 65% milling it out.
The board mounts an HC-06 BT module. You can also use an HC-05, but you have to configure it first, since I forgot the prepare the board for the AT-MODE pin...
Way better than a perf board...
The real surprise? It worked first shot.
I mean, I plugged it in and it worked. Is that even legal??
