  • Great Gadget, BUT won't work with latest Arduino software

    posted by 1Roddy on 07/04/2012
    5

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Complete, ready to go. I had time to kill after leaving the post office, so I fired up the laptop and 'played' while my wife shopped. Circuit board is good quality, resistors are labelled, lots of wire jumper.

    Cons:

    Won't sync with latest version of Arduino. You have to use an older version which is on the supplied disk. Use the folder with a name that ends with 0022. Copy the folder and it contents to your hard drive, double click on Arduino and you are off and running. Most info on disk is in Chinese (I think.) Labeling of more of the components would be useful. I am guessing which is the flame sensor, for example.

    OtherThoughts:

    Fairly good quality, reasonable shipping. Too bad the unit isn't up to date, and that the info disk is hard to read.

    Bottomline:

    I'll not buy this one next time, just because it is out of date.
