2022-11-08 (Tu) PoweredInlineSkatesRev2 Arduino protoboards

I wanted a transmitter with a comfortable handle and easy-to-reach potentiometer, but I needed to start with something functional. I grabbed a long prototyping board and installed a socket for the Arduino, header pins for a servo, header sockets for the joystick module, more sockets for the Bluetooth radio, and a 9-volt battery plug. I used 26awg silicone-coated conductors to connect everything. I repeated the process for the receiver, but I only needed a port for the radio and ESC, which will back-feed power.
Transmitter and receiver

I updated the program to match the pins I used. The joystick has two axes and a pushbutton, which I wired, but I don't do anything with them. I tried to seize the horizontal axis, but I couldn't get any solder to stick to the axle, so I left it alone. The bench testing looked promising, but the power was more inconsistent than ever when I went for a ride. I didn't add ramping back into the program, so there shouldn't have been any issues with timer modulation.
