BlimpDuino old Hat?

I look through this forum and I think all posts are from 2009 so i hope BlimpDuino is not old hat.  As I am new to all things 'Duino" and all of RC I have a couple of questions: How can one test a servo without hooking up to the board?

I'm pretty sure I toasted the one that came in the kit. As hard as I tried to NOT get a drop of glue on the shaft I think I did. 

Also, when I looked at the sketch files after I unpacked the .ZIP I see there are pde's for all of the electronic parts.  Is there any documentation on use of these codes to test individual parts.

All in all this has been a very enjoyable project.

  • Maybe we could have something like this :


    See this web-site.
  • Any ideas when kits will become available again, either here or through MakerShed?

    Blimpduino is still very much supported. It's a finished product and out of beta, so that's why you're not seeing active development posts.

    If you need another servo, just PM me your address and I'll send you one.

    Those individual .pde files are not for the individual components (although it may look that way). It's best to just load the code, and keep the FTDI cable plugged in and watch the Arduino IDE serial monitor to see the output from the various sensors.
