Watch the video first!
it's an introduction video of AMS1117
Basically, I wanted to create a mini quadcopter or drone, so I 3D-printed a common mini quadcopter design that I got from Thingiverse.
I attached the mini or micro DC motors to the quadcopter's 3D-printed body and added four "MOSFET as a switch" setups for controlling each motor.
Everything was working perfectly at this point, except voltage regulation.
My plan is to add a generic ESP-12F to this setup to control the motor via a web app (which is not important right now cause I have more problems than this).
The battery is of 3.7 V which can easily kill my ESP-12F module, so I bought an AMS1117 and made its breakout PCB for testing whether it can be used as my drone's voltage regulator or if I have to use other small voltage regulators (for example the one in Pro Mini).
I made the PCB in OrCAD and exported an inverted or flipped PDF file, so I could print it on a glossy paper and make a single-sided PCB by the etching process.
Result: The AMS1117 works and I'm now gonna make a breakout board for ESP-12F with AMS1117 for the drone
Thanks UTSOURCE.net to offer electronic components for this project!
you can check UTSOURCE.net, they deal in all kinds of electronic components, for example, Arduino board, Motor driver, proximity sensors, and many more.
Will post more about drone later after finishing it. For now, I'll be uploading its body file so you can download and 3D print it.
Peace out, fellas!
