    This is a follow-on to a separate thread regarding a Bluetooth lightsaber. Essentially, I'm going to put either Neopixel strips or Dotstar strips in a blade, and want to connect them to a hilt with a GX-16 9-pin port....

    On a semi-related note, is there a fritzing file for the prop shield? I've been looking, but can't find one. I was hoping to diagram it out to make sure the connections all made sense.

    Makes sense. For my case, the strip is all I care about, and I assume the fact that AP102s (as far as I have read) require 5V shouldn't matter because the prop shield has a 5V pin intended for that. Is there a max...

    All good information, thanks both of you for the details. Are there any significant advantages to the Neopixels over the Dotstars? I looked at the Dotstar comparison...

    Gotcha, makes sense. I might just try it and see what happens. I don't think the interrupt pin will be a huge deal for me (right now I'm just checking it in my loop), but Pin 7 might. Is it enabled by default, or would...

    Thanks for the reply. I'm a little confused by the response, but maybe I wasn't clear. My understanding is that the props shield doesn't have an on board processor (normally you would use a Teensy as you describe). I'm...

    I've been working for a few months off and on to make a bluetooth enabled lightsaber. I've had some success, but I'm looking to make some changes that I hope will make it a little better. Right now, I'm using the NRF52...
