@ErikJenkins Finally got around to trying it on the nightly 2.0 tonight. I like the layout of the UGS much better with the console on the main page.
As for operation, I did notice a strange quirk in that when I started using the remote, all the axis buttons just moved one axis. Also, each time I pushed a button the “Step Size” field in UGS would actually increment up or down depending on whether or not i was pushing a + or - command.
However I did find that unchecking “enable keyboard movement” stopped the incrementing. After resetting the zero and then only using the remote, not using direction buttons on screen, I found that it would then function normally.
For other updates, I’ve finally settled on better buttons for the next build and a better battery source. I want to keep this remote compact. What I have right now will allow the remote to function for about 20 hours of continuous on time before replacing the battery. I am in the process of designing a pcb board for the button interface and the controller board to eliminate the wiring nest and help keep it compact.
I have been having trouble finding an enclosure that I like that will work for what I want. I think I may just make my own from either wood or HDPE.
For those that expressed interest in the prospect of purchasing one, my current target is to sell these at ~$150. I could sell a pre-packaged kit for a discount for those that would like to put it together themselves. As I build this latest one I keep looking for ways to cut down the cost so I expect this price to go down by the time I have a final clean design. I may also offer a couple up for testing purposes to the first few people that initially expressed interest.
More to come…
