  • Answer: Yes, you do. I modified my FTDI basic breakout board for 5v as described in the comments, and now I can upload sketches to my 5v Arduino Pro Mini and receive Serial.println()’s back.

  • I’m having trouble programming this with the FTDI 3.3v breakout board. Do I need to modify the FTDI board to run at 5v, as described in the comments for that product?

  • So what exactly is the AUX2 pin for? It’s just tied through a 10k resistor to ground. Is there any situation where I’d want to do something with that pin? I guess I could use it to detect whether or not the laser is connected.

  • Now that it runs on 5V, does that mean it can’t run from a single LiPo cell anymore?

No public wish lists :(
