Re: Ello Wrld

This rc thing got me so bad! Anyway. I bought the trexjr from pololu with this chassis but after "playing" with it for a while I really feel that it is a bit overkill and "inconsistent" with its functions (especially serial control). So today two ultra cheap esc's arrived at my mailbox and I'll see ...

Re: Ello Wrld

I got a Sharp 15cm ir ragenfinder i bought with the rover but have not tested it yet. Can't remeber the name, but I can update this post later today with its name. Was discussing rangefinding with a friend and he asked me if these ultrasonic used on the back of the cars was of any use. So I guess I ...

The green wire will be at 5v, but the Rx pin on the micropython board is 5v tolerant, so that should be fine. The orange wire will be the Tx line from the micro...

Re: Cannot connect to pyboard via serial

Could somebody suggest how I might get this working? Jun 19 23:14:19 ha...
