Flying; Tinkering with stuff

  • Would someone who ordered this SIM dare post screen shot of speedtest.net? That would be most helpful! Then we really need to clarify the 2G thing – is it per month meaning it will reset every month back to zero or is it 2G aggregate for the duration of this 6 month SIM ride?

  • Before declaring it a fail lets see some sales figures six months from now but the price point certainly isn’t a good start :-)

  • I did face the same issue. Temp sensor was fine with my older Duemilinove/Eth but it was impossible to push the data to what I waned to use – http API since no CURL or JSON libs for Arduino :( so Pi was the choice and with all the libraries it pushes my telemetry beautifully to Open Sense… http://open.sen.se/sensemeters/tab/3355/

  • So total of 6 pins needed which can not be used for any other purposes? That’s a bit too may, no? Even if the SD card isn’t needed one still can’t reuse the SS pin

  • This is a totally viable concept - have the LCD do the heavy lifting. I just would like to ask whether that pretty bad lag is caused by the baud rate or the Arduino or the LCD itself? Is there any way to improve on latency? May be the code is doing just too many things including reading objects from the display?

  • Congratulations and god speed - you are lucky you are not doing this in California. It would have taken 5 more years plus another 5M for permits; litigation which your neighbors would initiate; environmental studies; air pollution penalties; dinging the ground penalties; doing anything at all penalties - all in all legitimized fraud which thankfully does NOT exist in Colorado. Good work guys! Start planning the house warming party!

  • From what I understand so far - you loose those; no latch. Goes back to 0. IMHO terrible design but there isn’t anything like this out there so this is still a great product

  • Worth to mention The Mux Shield uses Arduino digital pins 2, 4, 6, 7, analog input pins A0, A1, A2, and optionally uses digital pins 8, 10, 11, 12.

  • So the Arduino IDE plug-in; that must be a sizable plug-in; compiler plus the syntax management and all. Anyone using the Arduino IDE plug-in? How does it feel? Though an Arm processor it is still a true real time code execution, correct? No Linux touchy feely timing stuff like the Pi?

  • um the thing needs 5 pins (data;clock;int;reset;osc) in addition to power and ground so total 7 connections to the Arduino? Standard 2 i2c would have been ideal but even as it is the IC is pretty cool with its independent LED blinking engine and keyboard matrix

No public wish lists :(
