can you make this with the arduino nano?

I'm having an issue with the code. is there any changes made during the assembly. I got some random errors and I tried to change certain areas that have read errors, but more and more keep popping up. I'm using the Arduino software to verify it unless you're using different software, if so where at.

This is a great project and I can't wait to assemble it ! But, there's so many files..

Which ones are need just for the dome version ? No gimbal

Comments deleted.

I made a quick stand for the gimbal version:

Does the Accelerometer board not need a ground?

Looks like they updated the circuit diagram to include a GND on the accelerometer board now.

It does not work for me. I can recharge the code but it is dead all over.
I also forgot GND at LISEDH.

What's the proper way to charge the battery?

Use a microUSB cable to a 5V USB power supply like from a computer, USB hub, wall adapter or cell phone charger. See the guide for more info :-) https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-feather-m0-basic-proto/power-management

Thank you! Order placed!

Absolutely imazing! Very good idea!
