Pro Trinket controlled NeoPixels on Drone #droneday

Adafruit forum member jim_lee shared his drone project with us. He designed & 3D printed mounting a bracket for a Pro Trinket and modified his transmitter to can control NeoPixel LEDs.

Needed a mount for attaching a Pro Trinket to our quadcopters. Here’s the LInk : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:729459

This converts the Trinket to two holes centered 1″ apart. 2x4mm socket head machine screws will tap themselves nicely into the holes. It even has tiny cutaways to clear the oh-so-close solder pads.

We asked Jim_lee if he’d share his arduino sketch with us, and he did!

As for the source? Certainly!

I use github as a shared server for my code. I never really understood how it worked other than that. There is a LOT of junk in this pile so most can be ignored. Much of it is experimental “what-ifs” that don’t even work.

That being said..

https://github.com/leftCoast/Arduino – The big pile

Starting points :
My Quad with the light bars & flood lights : Jims_minis_lights
The quad with the glowing rings under the motors : Rob_s_Quad
The quad with the police flasher : Tom_Lights

Everything is biased on : libraries/LC_baseTools

My neoPixel libraries are in : libraries/LC_NeoPixel

My stuff for reading the R/C Receiver is in : libraries/LC_RCReciver

Hope this makes sense..

Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
