1 review for OctoPill Prop Controller Shield Make-N-Take Kit

    Came exactly as described. This product does assume some knowledge of electronics, you’re buying a kit after all. Still, a quick assembly/parts sheet would be useful. Kinda nitpicking, I admit 🙂 Everything is surface mount on the top side, save for the 10 pin header, that gets mounted on the opposite side. The Arduino won’t fit otherwise, which is kinda obvious, but a quick sheet to sanity check would have been cool.

    But that’s a nitpick, the product comes exactly as advertised. Would buy again.
