i haven't decided if i am going to build one of the smd boards or buy one, but i did put together a list in case i do build my own.

could i get you guys to take a look at it to verify the parts are correct please?

KK SMD Board Parts List

it is on my home server, thus the "alternative" port since cox blocks 80

thanks,
bob

Here is a mouser order for 5 sets of parts if you want to cross-reference. It was checked by others but not built yet.

(edit: too long. PM for list if desired)

quad build

As I am waiting on my pcb to arrive in the mail I thought I would work some more on the frame. So I sat down and started to draw up some parts on the ol cad program. Then sent it off to my CNC router to mill it out. Check it out......


Here is my mill in action if you want to see.....

I skimmed through the list. It seems fine. You don't need the C10 though. On my own PCB, I had a 10K between the reset line and the Vcc and no cap, and it never glitched or self reset. Kaptein's V5 PCB has a 4.7K resistor there, so it's even safer. And many of the 47uF cap can be taken from the HK401 gyros. so you don't need to buy them.

it's always fascinating to see those CNC machine in action.
The parts look nice. Have you considered cutting those parts out of derlin? That is much stronger than wood and could weight less; I'm not sure about the weight, but the parts could be smaller and still strong.

just out of curiosity, is there any advantage of going w/ a atmega168 vs a atmega328 or vice/versa? anybody know who has them in stock in the US? i have only looked @ digikey and mouser beeing a noob...

i think i have probably read all 100+ pages and not seen this question. sorry if it has been asked.

I wish to reflash my tricopter_1.1 to Y6_1.2 But I don't know M1 to M6 physical motor position and each motor direction.(sorry... I only interested on KKtricopter related threads before today)

Just in my two cents...
Could you add M1 to M4(M6) mapping description in source code comment?
OR
add Tri, Hexa/Y6(incl rotate direction) connection diagrams to first thread for the newbies?
OR
add motor connection diagram to each flash with next realese?
