Re: ESP32 and LilyGo TTGO T Call

Re: ESP32 and LilyGo TTGO T Call

Xyic0re, I don't use the SMS functionality at all but I can probably give you a good foundation and the supporting docs in order for you to make it happen. If, I find time I could assist as well, but, don't count on that. I will reply in more detail once I find a bit of free time. I just wanted to l...

Re: ESP32 and LilyGo TTGO T Call

Xyic0re, I believe you can actually charge the battery in the device you linked via solar. I think that version already has a port for hooking up a solar panel. I probably don't have time to go through all the Glympse API docs right now so I most likely will not be able to help with that implementat...

Re: ESP32 and LilyGo TTGO T Call

@xyic0re, I do have lots of code for this. What exactly are you looking to do? 1. Battery powered GPS for flight info? 2. You can do this using this device but it might be a touch heavy. I don't know the carrying capacity of your drones. 3. I would use the ESP-32 to send GPS AT commands on a regular...

Re: schedule module, is there a micropython version

Peter, This looks very well done. I love your documentation style and thoroughness. I will be able to use this for a couple of my projects and when I get around to implementing it I will definitely leave some feedback. But first, I wanted to say thanks for putting it together. Your contributions are...

Re: Stability of ESP32 vs ESP8266

Just wanted to add my experience to the pot. I have an ESP-32 hooked up to a device and it is also connected via MQTT. Sending messages every minute. Been flawless for almost a full year now. It communicates via modbus RTU over TTL (with a driver I modified to work) too. ESP-32 seem to be decent. I ...

I've been scrapping together other things in order to make it work but now, can't wait to try this out. Again, thank you! :D How would you like contributio...

Re: ESP32 using OTA updates

I believe the OP wants to update the python files in the filesystem, not update the MicroPython firmware itself? In that case the project linked by the OP seems appropriate. @straga: you may want to update your OTA code to use the esp32.Partition class in order to select the next partition and to w...

Re: ESP32 and LilyGo TTGO T Call

Simcom 7000g is a pretty good product. Reception is very good. If you have NB-IoT or CAT-M1 networks around it is gonna help with power requirements for solar. That particular link i sent has the solar connections and a rechargeable battery holder, soooo....... prob exactly what you want. The 7000g ...
