Hey Bill, here's my video on the missile launcher. Currently instead of firing the missiles (estes rockets), I have connected an LED to the firing circuit instead until weather allows me to go outside.
I still never troubleshooted the noise issue, I'm still using MICROSTEP instead of DOUBLE.
I'll have to put a cap between 5v and gnd sometime like you suggested.
Dave :)

That's an impressive launcher! :D
(Clever use of the toilet flange there too :wink: )
Thanks for posting. Hope the weather cooperates for the first launch.

I thought by painting the toilet flange people wouldn't notice!

Very cool! I'd love it if you could share your pan/tilt code.
