Heck yes I did. Yesterday. But I forgot to add some isolating kapton tape to a part of yours, so I included the tape in a package today. Yesterdays was priority, since they had no cheaper option. Todays was the slow way, since it was going to be $25 to send a tiny piece of tape. Haha.

The boxes are 28 pounds, and 8 x 12 x 16 inch^3. I don't know if it's because it's not flat rate, but the post office told me that they don't have a tracking number available for it. Technically, it was a person at the post office that told me, as opposed to the buiding. It was $90 to ship. Jerald's was $46.92. If it makes you feel any better, Flores, Jerald has a tracking number. haha.

I have Duncan's right on my desk at the moment, so I can test the code. It will go out very shortly. I'm very confident in the power section. That part is idiot proof. I mostly want to verify the pwm. I may have already checked PWM, but I can't remember anymore. That feels like an eternity ago. Once I check it (like right now) we can worry about tuning the details, like how the throttle ramp rate feels.
