    PocketBeagles from Amazon are WAY WAY too expensive.... Arrow.com is about 40% cheaper with faster shipping (overnight).

    I noticed the price difference and thought what the heck. That's where I will get mine, but there is no overnight shipping where I live. I am lucky if my 2 day prime arrives in 2 days.

    I created a adapter board to drive a single remote receiver board. I uploaded all the files to the github in the Quad_Diff_Out folder. The v1 PCB in the picture had a mistake that I had to fix with the extra wire. The current gerber files are v2 which has this fixed.

    Nice work on the remote driver board Scott. I'll try a few of those as well.

    Going back to the WLAN on the PB16, I'm beginning to see an issue with it also as you did.

    When I built the first board it worked very well on initial setup and testing, but then began to have issues where I would lose connectivity and it would take a long time to come back on a reboot. I've now built my second board and I'm seeing the same thing; good performance for about an hour or two and then it starts dropping connections and then finally won't even associate to pull an IP on boot. Replacing the 802 dongle restores function, but the timer starts all over again and in about an hour it fails. The dongle gets pretty warm too but the wired dongle is rock solid for days.

    Nice to see bugs being worked out with this. Can't wait to build mine and check it out.

    Received my boards today.....I, of course opted for Blue! LOL
    I don't expect to start putting together the BOM until after Christmas but I am really looking forward to building these.
    I actually have more fun assembling boards than building props or sequencing....Wish there were others close to me that love this stuff.
