2024-03-03 (Su) RADARBadge First assembly

The first boards arrived, but I was skeptical about the USB connection because it differed from the other footprints I used. However, it immediately spun the gear motor. I taped a AAA battery holder from my stock to the bottom. As intended, I mounted the motor with M3 bolts, but the shaft hole and anti-rotation hole were too small, so it sat poorly and rubbed against the sides as it spun. I used 35mm bolts in the corner to act as legs, and the unit sat level on a table while the motor was turning. Speed controls worked as I hoped, but the friction made low speeds challenging to judge.
