No problem.
Yes 2 llc wont hurt.

All done !!!


i wonder if "all done" is the same of "well done"....

Can someone take an overlook to my work before i plug the ESC ???
Is correct that WMP red wire go to 3.3 instead of 5V (or D37)???
Thanks

Enrico

This is looking good.
You have three options to power the WMP.
5V 3.3V and 5V over the CPU with Reset function D37.
It depends a little on your WMP which power is the best, but in most cases the 3.3V should be absolutely perfect.

I want to be real clear on this before I power the board. When I asked before paul said I only need to connect the + from the lipo to the lipo pin (ground would be returned through ESCs). In this pic you show ground from lipo going to the reset pin?

Good point 3rdeye ... another member PM'd me with that detail which I assumed was correct ... seems odd to connect a ground to the reset pin I must say! I will modify the diagram again. Thanks for the heads up!

Hi Guys made some GPS Bobīs for testing.
These 3 will go out to developers/testers.
Ramon will get one and Oleg will get one.
3rdeye should get one too i tihnk.
From this first 3 none is for me, Jussi can you wait till i have the 3.3V regulators?
As Ramon showed in the Pirates Thread the LLC is not needed it seems, but i will stay with that, its safe.
I may can add support for other modules on the bob?

Nice work, Paul!

I just ordered your flydusense bob, I will use it with your flyduino and Jussi's FFIMU, and test MP code, I can't wait to get them!

I'm not sure to understand right your last question, but maybe an Xbee bob/adapter could be interesting to have in the Flydu-ino/-bution/-sense tower...

Thanks!
Oh sorry my last question was what other GPS modules we want to support, i can make some pads for it accordingly on the BOB.
Right! a xbee would be fantastic, will investigate in that later.

Are you sending it with the GPS on it or everything but the GPS? I just ordered a GPS so I can solder it on myself.

Carefull with the diagrams David

It seems you have connected all gnd's from the ESC's together. It's better not to do so & avoid ground loops. Check this link on that topic if you want.

Nice Paul,

You think it's an option to add Vibration dampeners M3x15(or similar) to the shop?


The ones that MK uses?

I have pretty good experience with them. Since you provide the standoffs, these might improve overall performance.

Just an idea

So how do you do that? Just solder only signal pin for all motors (if I am using the regulator on the flyduino)?
