It seems that life is most definitely on my side today. Apart from a couple of burns and an hour or two of complete utter frustration, I can happily announce that around 95% of Phobass IV Mk2 works! Slightly stupidly, I sent off for the new PCB a bit early (before I’d properly had a chance to modify the current one) so I’ve got a couple of things I want to add. On this current one though, I just need to drill a few holes and add the proximity sensor then all is good and complete, Wahooo!
As can be seen in the above photo, the two wires coming out of the bass are currently just used for charging until I get either a mini USB socket or a DC power adaptor socket.
With hope, I’ll be able to get a video up in the next few days, then revision begins (nooooo)!
