I’m looking to replace the Arduino Uno in the staff with a smaller controller that will fit in the body of the internal tube. The Mini 05 seemed like the best option… well, received it this weekend, and I have to admit, I’m a little daunted.
On the one hand, it sure will fit in the staff, on the other hand, there’s a lot of very small contact points here. My soldering is pretty crude. I’ll have to put in a header for the USB port first, after that I can probably use a socket, which’ll make connections a lot easier.
