  • I’ll take your advice then. That’s about as much as I expected anyhow. Thanks for your response.

  • Perhaps a foolish question but I was wondering if I’d have any problems using this Xbee shield in conjunction with a libelium Xbee shield? Or is it necessary to have two shields of the same make?

  • Oops. Thanks for pointing that out. Posted a little too early. :p

  • Does this antenna operate on the 2.4Ghz band and is it ideal for the XBee 1mW U.FL Connection - Series 1 (WRL-08666)?

  • Which antenna would be ideal for this module? Either the Interface Cable RP-SMA to U.FL (WRL-00662) or the Interface Cable SMA to U.FL? And would I need an adapter - what one?

  • Really great display; plenty bright and feels robust. Managed to get it working well with a MAX7219CNG using a 47k ohm resistor and two decoupling capacitors (0.1uf & 10uf). Admittedly, my greatest obstacle was the enigmatic datasheet which proved irksome to say the least…

  • Thanks for your lengthy reply - it’s proven invaluable!

  • The spacing between the cheap pads are frustratingly small, meaning it’s incredibly easy to short when soldering. Even with using pin headers I’ve had little luck in soldering this adequately.

  • Had some problems with this. It was working perfectly up until I installed the drivers. When I went to reboot I switched the on/off and held down the button as was said. When that chose to fail I unplugged it and tried some more times unsuccessfully. Eventually I gave up and resigned myself to the original settings. The footage is decent and acceptable with the original settings unless you’re willing to spend over four times the price on the similar HackHD camera which is also available.

  • Don’t worry, solved it. :)
