I ordered my PCB boards already Smile
I may wait until he releases plans for the ESC to order all the parts though... putting together that laundry list is going to take some time. Also.... I don't know how to SMD solder. Figure starting with the tiniest of the tiny was a logical place to start ................ #terribleideas #thisisnevergoingtowork

Get solder paste and a hot air gun, just wet every solder pad with paste, place component on top and fixate them one by one with a hot air gun.

Thanks for the tips!!! Yep. That's the plan.  I was thinking about laser cutting a stencil with vellum paper ... but we'll see.


There's a lot to this build though that's out of my league. I don't really know how to compile the code he's using for the FrSky rx (CC2510 chip) - something I'll have to learn. Plus I'll have to setup a raspberry pi for flashing it when I do get that code compiled.  That's the biggest unknown for me right now - no idea how to compile the code and flash with raspberry pi.

... AndreyM ... you seem pretty active in many places. I just noticed you seem active in perhaps developing the Chrome App for the BLHeli suite? If that's true .. thanks for the amazing work!!

*cough*  anyone want to put together a tutorial for the pepperfish?  Big Grin
