Getting ready for Uchusen’s first xbee to xbee wireless comms setup with 2x Arduino. Just assembled, soldered and prepared two xbees, then started work on the remote Arduino+Xbee combo.
Started also configuring the computer-side Xbee using a hacked-together FTDI breakout board setup… now I know why FTDI-USB cables are not always ideal, esp in this case. Couldn’t find HyperTerminal (as this has been phased out since Windows 7), and updating other tools like X-CTU makes me wonder whether there is a better way of doing this. Anyway, got this far, work to be continued over next few days!
