Hi,

I thought I’d give a shout to a relatively new UK component supplier https://hobbycomponents.com/

They seem like a really great company. Not only do they sell the usual Arduinos and modules, they also write a lot of drivers and Arduino libraries themselves, which is really good for those Chinese modules, eBay specials, etc.
Ok in their forums for all the zip files and discussions.

Plus prices are good (a little bit more than ebay but not much, and delivered in days not weeks or months) and postage is cheap.

No connection or interest - just trying to connect other hobbyists.

Hope it helps,
Murdo.

Great. Now I want a hexapod. And I've still got to get the processor board working, and there's a new large format camera coming, and a new house next door to try and block... aargh!

Hobby Components have been about for a long time.

 

An excellent company which provides a good service to hobbyists.

Most importantly,  they provide proven software for all the items they sell.

 

There are several UK based hobbyist companies.

They tend to stock the more popular components.   

 

Ok,  they cost more than Chinese shops but the goods arrive in 24-48 hours and undamaged.

 

David.

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
