WIRING DIAGRAM

The following is a connection diagram linking 4x REV02 lap timing devices with a communications module such as a HC-06 Bluetooth module OR a DT-06 WiFi module.

NOTE: The last device (‘Device 4‘) bridges the RX and TX pins on the ‘OUT‘ pins to loop back and complete the serial link chain.

FIRMWARE

Please use this firmware if you are using the original PIDflight PCB or have built your own using the published PIDflight schematic.

Please note the Bluetooth TX/RX must be disconnected from the Arduino Nano to flash the firmware successfully.
