Wired Connections

The Prop-Maker FeatherWing is fitted on top of Adafruit Feather M4 Express via female/male headers. The speaker is connected via a molex pico blade connector.

Powering

The Adafruit Feather M4 Express can be powered via USB or JST using a 3.7v lipo battery. In this project, a 2200mAh lipo battery is used. The lipo battery is rechargeable via the USB port on the Adafruit Feather. The slide switch is wired to the enable and ground pins on the Prop-Maker FeatherWing. 

3W RGB LED

  • red pin (R-) to red pin on Prop-Maker FeatherWing
  • green pin (G-) to green pin on Prop-Maker FeatherWing
  • blue pin (B-) to blue pin on Prop-Maker FeatherWing
  • voltage pin (V+) to V+ pin on Prop-Maker FeatherWing

Speaker

  • Voltage and ground to Prop-Maker speaker port

Slide Switch

  • Middle pin to enable pin on Prop-Maker
  • Far left or right pin to ground on Prop-Maker
Note the RGB LED can get H-O-T HOT! Be careful to not touch it or allow flammable materials around it if it is very hot. This is how these parts are designed, to be so bright, and it is not a part design issue.
