  • Tutorial - Leap Motion Teardown | about 10 months ago

    You usually find glue over inductors not because they’re mechanically flimsy, but because they’re noisy. Depending on the frequency of the signal passing through the inductor, it can make an annoying buzzing sound as the changing magnetic field in the coils pull them back and forth. Glue helps to hold the coils in place and minimise the noise.

  • Tutorial - RC Hobby Controllers and Arduino | about 2 years ago

    ArduPPM is a quite mature RC PWM decoder system (developed as part of the ArduPilot project) and the source (in the ardupilot source repository) is quite useful to have a look at.

    Also, if your RC receiver has a PPM output (and there are tutorials around on how to hack one in if it doesn’t) that’s even easier to read in, and you can get every channel using just one input pin on the arduino.

    You guys sure are lucky with the sugru - I had one expired pack that wouldn’t cure at all, and another that had already completely set before it was even opened. :P

    Third year, no biscuit. I still love you Sparkfun, but I’m not going to bother in future.

No public wish lists :(
