Homemade Quadrotor Navigation Lights PCB with AL8805, ATmega328P
Ardupilot user Swift’s DIY navigation lights PCB is progressing along nicely; the most recent upgrade swapped out the ATtiny84 for an ATmega328PB. You can chime in on the project’s forums here or follow along via the GitHub repo here.
I’m currently working on a board to drive (4) 3W Leds for my Quad.
The prototype is capable at this time to:
– Can be powered by 3s to 6s batteries.
– Attiny 84 drives leds… according to firmware on it.
Phase 2 would be to Parse MavLink Messages…
this is where I need help for the firmware.
A connector (the yellow one) can be hook up just like a OSD, in order to sniff MavLink messages.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
