    Not sure this is all that useful. The board is fairly crammed, so it's hard to tell from the CAD. Maybe I'll remember to take a photo when I get home.

    They didn't have QFN footprints to match, so I constructed them in KiCad using the recommended dimensions from the data sheets. Also: I use "QFN" to...

    I have used exactly this circuit to interface between Teensy 3.2 and 3.5 and the DXL bus, yes! The RX pin has a 560 Ohm / 1 kOhm resistive divider...

    Those are RC servos, using PWM control. You can generate such pulses from any of the Arduino boards, using the Servo library. I'd recommend using a...

    I'd like to attend if possible, too! Also, I'd like to help a bit, perhaps with scoring plates or somesuch. Maybe we can make an order to Macrofab...

    That's what the magnetometer (and ideally also a GPS input) is supposed to help you solve, using some kind of Kalman conditioning. Another option is...
