    I built the Dropcontroller V3, it works almost everything except the Bluetooth. When will the two analog inputs and the third flash be implemented in the Windows software?

    I used a 2,2k resistance instead of a 2k near the HC-06. Can it create problems?

    Sorry for my English but I am Italian

    Using a 2.2k resistor should be OK.

    I am updating the version 2 sketch and apps and once I have these done I will add a Bluetooth check sketch. In the meantime I have quite a bit on Bluetooth at martyncurrey.com

    Hi Marco,

    I have updated the apps and sketches and all should be OK now.
    I have also added a short guide on setting up a HC-06 Bluetooth module at http://www.dropcontroller.com/setting-up-checking-bluetooth/

    Hi Martyn!
    Thank you very much for keep developing the drop controller! I build gear for my wifes drop photography (www.anita-k-foto.dk/), and was about to make some modifications to her controller, when I noticed V3. Perfect timing :-) We have a few suggestions:
    1. In the software, add a enable/disable checkbox for each triggerable item, (camera, flash, solenoids) This would make test/timing shots much easier, this could perhaps replace the “number of valves” function.
    2. When/If you make the change to the Mega 2560 or find some extra ports some other way, add more flash,camera and solenoid outputs perhaps a servo or two;-)

    Hi John,

    Thank you very much for keep developing the drop controller!

    My Pleasure. Building the controller has become a hobby in it’s own right.

    Nice site.

    I hadn’t thought about enabling/disabling the solenoid valves. You can now turn the camera and flash triggers on/off though.

    I hadn’t planned on moving away from the Nano and so don’t have any plans on using the MEGA. If you want a MEGA based feature rich device have a look at Michael Ross’s High Speed Photo Trigger.

    I think the two analogue triggers is the end of the extra additions. The whole point of building just a valve controller was so that it was as simple as possible and easy to build.
