V2 Working Video

This video is just meant to show my V2 prototype working. There is several bugs in the firmware so far, rotatably it doesn't reset the accumulated torque reading if it hasn't made a revolution in a while. This leads to the period timer overflowing, causing a miscalculation on the first revolution, but subsequent revolutions are calculated correctly.

It needs work -- that's why I'm building V3. The hope is that I'll have compact reliable electronics that I can continue to develop the firmware for. If you're keen you'll notice a lot of failed Rx on the laptop. Antenna placement is critical and placing it inside that torque tube is a terrible idea.
