stayed firmly grounded: it just needed some tweaking of various parameters which should have only taken a few minutes, but then came a new problem: I couldn’t actually get a stable WiFi connection to the drone via SSH despite the WAP being only a couple of feet away. I think I need to consider my antenna.
So I’ve chosen a new USB WiFi dongle and antenna base but to fit the antenna physically to the drone is another problem to be resolved. To cut a long story short, the antenna is going to be dangling down between the legs of the drone (phnarr phnarr for any Viz readers). And to do that will required a bit of remodelling how the breadboard attached to the shelf between the legs. Which leads me to the point of this post: pictures of the breadboard layout so I know how to rebuild the circuits with the new antenna layout.
P.S. Look very closely and you’ll see a small wire hiding under the muRata switching regulator – it’s there so the V+ & GND are only separated by 0.1″ which matches the connector spacing from the battery.
