Wallieonline Projects and Build logs


#21

@NotFastEnuf Thanks for your reply and all the great stuff you made.

I have been following silverware for a long time but didn’t know it was born out of a robotics project. I build my own robotics controller based on parts of the MultiWii code. It uses a Arduino pro mini and a tb6612fng H-Bridge. It even talks MSP and is able to connect to the MultiWII GUI.

Also made a Bayang receiver (based on code from goebish) from a Arduino pro mini and a nrf24l01 module. I needed a few cheap TX-es for educational projects, so I used the E011 TX-es that I had lying around :slight_smile:

What board are you using for the brushless silverware build? Maybe I can swap the F3 board (I bought for 6,81 euro) for a silverware board.


#22

wasn’t directly from a robotics project, but I did code a self balancing robot and thought, well, it’s basically that times 3, how hard could it be.


#23

I think that qualifies!

@wallieonline … that sounds awesome… of course I’m encouraging you to jump in and help code/create new features now that you have announced your skill set!! Haha.

I’m using @Ian444’s silverlite board. He hand assembled it and released open source plans. I tried my hand at the other open source silverware brushless board but have failed to date in assembly. I’m still learning smd soldering. But converting a brushed board is an easy shortcut to also get airborn.


#24

Yep! That qualifies :smile:
First I need to get better at tuning PID’s, and I need to get my STM programming environment running under Linux.

I found the @Ian444 silverlite board on OSH park under the profile of @yets.
It’s beautiful… but I don’t enjoy soldering the MPU-6050 I think converting a brushed board is a better option for me :blush:


#25

Cool!!

I’m also in the Netherlands; let me know if you need any more e011/Boldclash toy transmitters - I have way too many of those lying around!! :smiley:


#26

Soldering the MPU 6050 isn’t that bad! :sweat_smile:

If you’re not going through the hand made boards (which I think you should do as you’re someone who likes to build :D), the Bwhoop is the best supported. Plus there’s a Brushless fork of Silverware which makes it easy to get flying… (shameless plug)


#27

Goed om te zien dat er meer liefhebbers zijn uit Nederland :smile: At the moment I have more then enough E011 transmitters… don’t know how that happened :blush: But don’t throw then away there is a really nice rf-board in there.


#28

@yets For a genuine MPU-6050 I have to pay more then $7 It’s an expensive component to destroy when soldering. I only have a hollow point for soldering… no hot air. Thanks for the board advice!


Here is a picture of my el cheapo build :smile:


#29

That’s fair enough @wallieonline. If you do get yourself a hot air gun (or even a cheap heat gun with a small nozzle like I’m using) a little tip is to harvest these boards from aliexpress Not sure if they are genuine but they were perfectly fine for the two boards I’ve put them in. I think I paid £3.80 for 10 pieces.

I’m all for cheap. :smile:
