That is too frickin easy!
Do you think in the 60's, that cheat sheets were allowed in school?
Hell, we were lucky to be able to use a slide rule!

I know, what's a slide rule? (an Analog Computer :D )

Sounds like my physics class, except my instructor was a joke. I learned plenty about welding and diesel engines. I don't ever recall him mentioning a thing about Newtons Laws.

It's exciting to see this thread come one step closer to launching the Mini Boy! :D

With these dimensions, that board is not going to fit in the miniboy.

Assuming I do use the board... hmmm...

MrC, can you fit an AAA battery between the threaded rod and the body cavity? Probably not. Failing that, look at the list of button cell sizes - which is the biggest that fits?

What about AAAA: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AAAA_battery

42.5 mm long and 8.3 mm in diameter

You could probably get away with removing the threaded rod and using a small amount of adhesive.
Or creative use of a few small grub screws, for a more sophisticated approach.


Just a thought, dewey-1, could there be some way to use a capacitor with some sort of voltage regulator to mimic a small low capacity battery ?
Still button cells will probably be more compact anyway...

That would make life a lot easier :)

About the circuit, this is what I'm pondering - what if I assembled it "in the air", just connecting things together as opposed to to the board, then put the resulting "christmas tree lights just coming out of storage" circuit into a mould and poured it full of epoxy?

I realise that maintenance would then be impossible, but I guess testing it before pouring the epoxy would suffice...

That is the main reason.

Actually, in the original version, the word Bad was Black.
Over the years that was was changed for apparent reasons.

Politically correct resistors, who would have thought.

What do you think about this:

I would naturally not pot the coil.

Parts layout is some what critical when dealing with RF circuits.
Not saying that it can't be done, just that it may be a lot of trial and error by anyone not familar with RF circuit design.

Is it really? I do know some high frequency circuits won't work on a breadboard... but this?

some what
