Yes - I will for sure recover those. Also may still play some with a few of those Mega shields I made as I do have three different boards that some of them fit:
Arduino Mega 1280 - That was one in the picture probably won't use except maybe to test things when needed.
Arduino Due - Not sure - I had issues with my shield with 3.3v/5v conversion. Not sure I will pickup again.
Chipkit Max32 (PIC32) - Interesting board - IDE still back at arduino 0023 build - Not sure if I will pickup again.
Also not shown in picture is have several Seeeduino Mega boards, some again with my own shields....
May have to have an electronic garage sale.
Yesterday got the PhantomX walking again. Need to do some more testing. Had to renumber 2 servos that had their IDs change. One of them to ID #1 which is not unusual. But had another one change to id: #14. (That is a little more unusual). Maybe I updated servos before and both #12 and #14 were #1 and did not realize it and changed both to #14...
Today, I started to play with it to see how well it can handle Hobby RC servos. Looks like a couple of valid ways. They have updated the Servo Library to work with the Teensy 3. With default maximum of 12 servos. Can potentially bump number up, but that could cause the servo cycle to get longer, which if too long servos will complain...
If you have 12 servos at center 1.5ms, then the 12 servos would take 18ms to output, which is under 20ms, so you get the 50 refreshes a second. But if they were all at the defined MAX of 2.4ms, we would take about 28.8ms, so we could only refresh about 34.7 times per second.
Another approach is to use the PWM pins. I have experimented some and it also looks valid. They have added a few extra commands to help make this easy:
May experiment more later with this. Also if I thought it needed more servos, could experiment more with using some of their other timers. But for this board 12 should be more than enough. More than this might need me to update the board again and route VS to some more of the Analog pins....
But not sure how far to take it as I am doing it for my own fun!
