    Turtlebot3 with Openmanipulator
    I have it pre-ordered so, a unboxing should be in short order I hope.

    LOL. It is not even here yet and I am having issues.
    I tried to update a OpenCR board and now I have two OPenCR bricks.
    Sigh looks like hours of entertainment, starts now.

    I have not done anything with mine for a few weeks now. Been busy with Puppy and with the Teensy 4 Alpha board.

    Sometimes when I had issues iwth OpenCR board, I need to revert back to using the RPI (or UP) board to reprogram the board with current default firmware, before I could get it to talk again on Arduino...

    Thank you. I found page 248 in the book were you press the reset and switch 2 which forces the boot-loader to run, yea!
    That really had me thinking I bricked my boards when I noticed, I was not the only one with the same issue, so I re-read the BOOK and
    lo and behold there it was, and the only place I have ever seen mention the use of switch 2, so yea again!!

    Well with that fiasco out of the way it's back to waiting for a package .
    Look at the site they have a frame set and a heavy base plate for the manipulator.

    Here it is. I downloaded the build instructions, as this one comes with no instructions, but useful links
    There Disclaimer really needs to be more visible. i.e Base plate is sold separately like the power supply and a controller .

    I had everything but the base plate which should be here Monday.
    P.S. This went together fast and easy, for those with bigger fingers like me, maybe a hour and the hardware is done.
    I would install it on my turetlebot3 waffle but I must play with it, before going mobile.

    The default configuration for the manipulator is on the u2d2 or a USB serial connection, and it works really well, and is quite as a mouse.
    After i get better with the controllers we will go mobile on a waffle.
