PD-NRF System

Estimated reading time: 1 min

The PD-NRF System (Printed-Droid NRF24L01 System) is intended to be a cheap open source platform for smaller droids etc.

The core system is an Arduino Nano with an NRF24L01 radio module (both on the transmitter and receiver side).

So far there are 2 remote controls and 2 receiver boards.

Remote Controls:

PD NRF Remote:

Dimensions: 120mm x 90mm
Arduino Nano + NRF24L01 (large or small module)
2 analogue joysticks
2 potentiometers
8 buttons
screen
position sensor
Mode switch

Instead of 2 potentiometers and 8 buttons, you can change to 1 potentiometer (right or left) and 14 buttons.
A potentiometer is then replaced by a resistor ladder which is actuated by the 6 other buttons.

PD-NRF Mini Remote (one handed remote):

Dimensions: 124mm x 51mm
Arduino Nano + NRF24L01 (large or small module)
1 analog joystick
2 potentiometers
11 buttons
screen
position sensor

Receiver Boards:

Receiver V1:

Dimensions: 59mm x 48mm
Arduino Nano + NRF24L01 (large or small module)
8 digital pins (or 6 + RX/TX)
8 analog pins
I2C

Receiver v2:

Dimensions: 80mm x 48mm
Arduino Nano + NRF24L01 (large or small module)
8 digital pins (or 6 + RX/TX)
6 analog pins (or 8 without the DFPlayer)
DFPlayer with LineOut
I2C

Gerberfiles are in the download section below.
Code and more info will be added soon
