Shopping List

I mistakenly bought surface mounting battery holders instead of PCB mounting battery holders. These were much harder to mount and caused issues with the assembled circuit board fitting in the housing. Make sure you get PCB mounted battery holders!

I was born on a pirate ship off the coast of Peru where I was given a traditional Aztec upbringing, during which I excelled in the arts of sciences. At age seven my parents accidentally murdered each other in a freak fencing accident. Heartbroken I joined the tribe of Omaha, where I trained under the legendary Vin Diesel. At age eighteen, after a failed Fear Factor audition, I set out for a berry plantation roughly four kilometers south of Albuquerque. I currently reside at Ram Ranch which really rocks!

Hey, I’m not seeing a gyro listed in your part bill? I’m guessing a MPU-6050 is needed as well?

    Yes, thanks for catching that Benjamin! I have added it to the list.

Hey Joey, any interest in selling it as a kit with all the parts? I love scratch building kits but hate having boxes of left over resistors and switches cause I have to buy a lot of 10 of them or whatever.

Also great work man, and I totally dig your open source brewing mindset. Keep on the good fight brother!

    Thanks for the feedback Bonz! Glad you are enjoying the videos. More electronic projects to come. I would love to put a kit together for people. I’m going to put some numbers together and figure out if it’s worth the effort. Cheers mate!

      Perhaps you could sell a “Bag of misc components” if you afraid of building a full kit. If you have a bag of parts you don’t plan on using, ide be more than happy to buy one. 😉

Thanks for the guide, I saw other guides that talk about removing a regulator or diaode from the D1 Mini, have you come accross that, I noticed you didn’t do that?

    Found it. Link below. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT REMOVING THE D1 MINI DIODE IS SUPPOSED TO DO? The next comment down on the link is from the guy that built the PCB I use in the video and he says it is not necessary to remove it. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. If you find out why people are removing it please let me know. I’m interested 🙂 https://github.com/universam1/iSpindel/issues/154#issuecomment-399161198
