Like promised, Jasmin from openfoil.com will start selling BREmote kits today.
To keep the sales of the kits and the original idea seperated, I created this new topic. For questions/feedback regarding the kits sold, please use this topic. For questions/feedback regarding the idea or firmware, please go here: BREmote - DIY Remote
He sent me a kit to try out first, so here is my opinion on it:
Just a small hint for everyone who bought the DIY Kit: The small USB breakout included in the kits, intended for testing, does have a different pinout from the BREmote, so please pay attention when connecting ( One is 5V, D+, D-, GND) and the other (GND, D+, D-, 5V)
I tried to order new magnet rods for the bremote but they seem hard to source, couldn’t find a single supplier in N52 strength. The ebay part linked on your github site isn’t delivered to sweden unfortunately…
The ones in my kit got locked due to too much adhesive - can i buy new from you @ludwig_bre?
They could be good to sell as a part from openfoil too for users that either epoxied or PUR glued theirs
I have had good luck taking them out of the epoxy with side cutters as the epoxy does not bond that well to the nickel coating of the magnets.
Can you try that? Otherwise feel free to drop me a PM and I will be happy to send you some magnets
