  • I strongly disagree with the statement of rc controllers not beingg customizeable and more expensive. The th9x rc controller has quite a bit of adjustments that can be used for rc vehicle control. You can also load custom firmware. Also the price of your controller kit is about the same after you factor in that you need two xbee devices along with the controller.

  • Thanks!

  • Thanks!

  • Could we get a video of the different alarm tones on the 16 tone piezo alarm

  • Left shark lost the race after turning left into the pits on the first turn.

  • You could also just have a string through the whole thing and when done tie the el wire and pull it through.

  • My opinion is combined shipping shouldn’t have been allowed.

    It would also be neat if the price went up exponentially for each additional item, that would stop people from taking too many of the item.

  • Free day is what brought me to sparkfun a few years ago. I had got a free 100$ and ordered a soldering iron and some other random bits.

    Ill probably get something this upcoming free day. I need some parts anyway and the random item for a penny sounds fun. I can daydream all week waiting for it to arrive thinking of what Im going to get.

  • I still dont see the Blynk board as an option. Using arduino 1.6.9, esp8266 2.3.0 and Sparkfun ESP8266 2.1.0 installed

    EDIT: Ive found I need esp8266 2.1.0 to be able to see the blynk board as an option

  • The feathers arent just an arduino clone. They have built in battery and charging support. which is great for small portable projects. The feather line also make it easy to add wings(their version of a shield).

    The charlieplexed led shields might not be ground breaking but its a product that wasnt out and now it is easily available.

    Both are great uses of the open source philosophy, taking a product and improving it or customizing it to suit your needs. There is nothing wrong with more choices being available when trying to design a product.

    I also like both companies, each one has its strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes one might have some better products, but the other might have fun events or sometimes a tutorial that really helps understand something.

No public wish lists :(
