[Flightcomputer] "Pictura 1" PCB

This is the PCB file for the Flightcomputer module breakout. I have used this for the Space Camera projects (link). Making this one custom costs like $8. It incorporates a good conenction to hook up your t68i ericsson telephone for serial commands (SMSing), and its used to go with the Radiometrix NTX2 breakout for radioconnections and the Lassen IQ breakout for the GPS connetions, you should make those as well. It is all powered by 3 AAA batteries you paste on top. Then, you have to get a Arduino Pro Mini as well that is the brains of this PCB.
I have made these breakouts in a free version of Eagle (which is great, you can download it here). You can make PCB’s for very cheap at www.batchpcb.com or even better at http://www.seeedstudio.com/.

Also, i have a few of these boards spare and i don’t use them: if you like, you can have one.

    Even een vraagje, wat voor software draai je eigenlijk op dat ding?

    Where did you get all the parts from for this?

    I’m starting to get the parts together to make my own flight computer but really don’t know where to start!!

    I’d make a nice donation for all the help that you could give me 🙂
