I submitted final revision to oshpark for a board run today

the rest of the parts should arrive this week for the batch in production

 

Here is a video of the prototype mockup:

The board consists of :

2x 10mm super bright 20ma red & blue led's
 1x 12mm 5v active 89db buzzer module
2x .5watt 330ohm resistors (or 220ohm)

It's also capable of taking smaller smd leds also as the pad/hole spacing matches most types (may require different resistors to correspond with led used)

Nice, is this going to be available as kit or pre-fabricated?

Comment by Charles lakins on August 20, 2013 at 5:29am

I could offer both I guess, I have had a few people ask that same question

Very nice.  I would love to use one of those, especially after I paint the inside of the APM case.  Nice work.

Great idea bud. Count me in for one. Any prices for kit and assembled?

It can be placed on an arm or rear of the aircraft or even underneath, wherever its best viewed for your flying style

I am working on funds to produce a larger batch from http://imall.iteadstudio.com/open-pcb/pcb-prototyping.html

aswel, they have pretty good prices I find

I'm working out the logistics for pricing (including shipping for USA & Canada) and a small increase for international buyers

I have someone in the USA that will also handle US shipping & sales if this becomes larger than expected, it was just to learn eagle at first and provide a led solution for a few people & myself, but the onslaught of pm's and email are growing

yeah I would probably want to buy one of these pcb's if you had a an extra

Comment by Simon Wunderlin on August 20, 2013 at 10:25am

Have you thought about asking 3dr if they would produce it and sell it in their store ?

Comment by Charles lakins on August 20, 2013 at 11:11am

I haven't got any replies to the idea that was made by me yet

Comment by Charles lakins on August 20, 2013 at 11:41am

The board measures 2.11x0.76 inch (53.62x19.30 mm) in size
