Restless Build Log

Post by cbafun » Thu Nov 01, 2018 1:30 pm

Hi,

Here is a little build log of me and my brothers project. Grown a bit over the past months, but hope we can complete it before Christmas.

Here are some pictures of the intended design, PCB progress and experiments.

As you can see, we changed our minds regarding the joysticks after the first PCB were ordered.

Also thanks to Helder for the awesome PSU!

We were planning on using a slimmed down pi3, but thanks to the release of the 3A+, it is all coming together a little easier. An update coming soon.

I got those from AliExpress. Can't find the link now, but have seen them on ebay too.
