Re: Help! Need materials

I've added a voltage regulator into the circuit so the main board does not overload. Voltage going in was indeed 6.8V but now it is 5.9V max.

the rest of the circuit is still running on "6V".

I will begin programming it tomorrow, and then the final assembly of the whole project :D.

Re: Brighton Mini Maker Faire 8th September 2012

I'll be there in Saturday. Do you still need any help running the stand? I may be able to help out, but not a definite answer yet. Also do you want any antweights to display? I can't get them running, they're plaing up a bit.
