no, it didnt seem likely anybody would attempt such a build so i concentrated on the mega8 version.

from memory there were 3 caps, a resistor, and a crystal in addition to the a7105 and t13. i never did a schematic but wired from the amicom reference design. this was a small subset of the full complement of components and as a result range suffered big time. about 1/8th that of the pcb version. this is not really a problem because tiny planes cant fly that far away. but a lot of the parts serve no purpose anyway. certainly not those used for transmitting. it will be very interesting to see how thierrys ZERO parts design works out.

as for progammer i used one of my trusty 3 wire lpt dealies like with all my projects. hard to beat at 10 cents a shot. you will probably fare better with a usbasp. or any other avr burner for that matter.

ill post more info when i get a chance. probably draw up a diagram for you next time i build one. dont forget to dust off the microscope.
