Yellowjacket board

Got my YJ board westerday and started to work on it tonight.

Soldered everything up and installed the hardware on the drone.

Next I tried to upload Mheeli's sketch but for some reason the YJ would not accept it. Tried different baud rates and resetting the YJ and still nothing but the failed upload message. Something to do with not being able to sync.

Looked on line at the Arduino IDE help site but found nothing I was doing was wrong.

I don't know what prompted me to get out my magnifying glasses and have a closer look at the YJ board but lucky I did. I found that two of the Atmega328 chip's legs were bridged with solder. Wierd. Once I cleaned that little mess up low and behold the sketch uploaded and all is well. Whew!!!!!! Started to set the radio up (Spektrum 8) but ran out of time.

Will have at it again tomorrow after work. Fun fun fun!!!!!!
