8dobit NES30 Controller (Bluetooth)
Latching Power and Reset setup for safeshutdown - GPIO Pins
LED to complete the look - Wired to the GPIO Pins with 330ohm resistor

3D printed shell, top PLA Cool grey and the bottom is ABS for heat.
The cart latch works and you can insert a small NES cart, just for looks.

Was a cool project which I really enjoyed.

Looks great! :)

I actually just got one of those 8Bitdo Nes30 Pro controllers today! How do you like yours? I'm finding it hard to get used to the small joysticks, but I still enjoy using it on my phone and tablet! It's also the perfect controller for Retropie :D

Yeah its fantastic, It did take some setup and mucking around to get it to work on my pi3. I don't mind the joysticks especially for psx and n64.

I know DaftMike is going to open source his designs and files but hasn't yet till he does all his sales. I'd like to build one too once he does. Nice job!

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.

DaftMike he has pretty much stopped responding to emails/website updates since October, hope he is ok. But a lot of people pre-ordered kits. I ended up getting a refund through paypal.

If he had schematics up it would be easy to make the same boards he's selling and just throw it on OSHPark for everyone to use. It doesn't look overly complicated in terms of the board design from the pictures he has on the site so not sure the issues with the boards he had.

Thanks! I swear I looked at this github some days ago and didn't see the schematic.

This took way longer than expected but I finished my 3D printed NES, turned out great!

Updated post one with all info including the safe shutdown and LED scripts if you want to build one.
