Would this clone board be ok ?
https://www.amazon.c...=arduino uno r3
I realise I'm being a cheapskate, but if I muck it up due to my wonderful soldering, lol, then I don't mind the £9 hit.
I also like the post earlier on that said the clone boards had easier solder points, that would help me, greatly.
I also believe that this screen worked ok ?
Just to edit:
It would be awesome if someone could design a 3d-printed mini 1050 case.
I used an even cheaper Uno clone and it works so far (still gotta build a cable!) but I have that same Elegoo Uno board which came in a big Arduino maker/experimenter's kit some months ago and I tried the software with that one too tonight. Works great, so you should be good to go. And that's the exact model screen/card reader I bought, so again you're good. For what it's worth, if you check the project page from the first post, you'll see several case variants people have made. I'm going for that final one, an XL-styled case. It's not quite a mini-1050 but it fits the overall look quite well, I think. Just gotta get it printed in the next week or so.
Now having said that, I got a new microSD card tonight, loaded it to the gills with ATR files and tried it in the SDrive-MAX - fantastic! One user note: the file names as shown in the drive slots and as you navigate the file structure to load them are truncated and abbreviated by the software. HOWEVER: if you tap one, you see the full file name at the top of the screen. So as you decide between several versions of a file, for instance, just tap one, see if it's the one you want, and if not, select another. Then you can confirm with an OK button, and that image is ready to go in that drive.
Now I just gotta get my diodes (Tuesday) and get to building a cable to try it out!
