Fantastic, I was thinking about your post the other week.

Any idea when the angel board would be available? My EHM uses an angel 90* frame

The Valhalla vikings have a custom frenzy frame, Elia and acid made custom frames for the evil ehms, those 3 frames use ego boards. I think there are couple other custom frames also used ego boards and one that had an ego frame mod to fit the ehms.

right now the board is still in the design phase. I m currently in my third design iteration. I want this board to be as robust physically as I can make it. I wrote the software from scratch; it is in it's second iteration. Its really a big undertaking for one person. The Revision 3 board has already been ordered, I expect it sometime next week. I think Rev3 will be the final physical form. The software is up and running, but there are features that I still want to add.

I just had a tray adapter printed in plastic for an 07/08 ego frame to mount to an evil ehm. If that goes well, Ill be making a few tray adapters in aluminum. I also plan on making the profile of the frame open source in the near future.

Update:
If you can fit an angel lcd frame on an M then this would be cool.

Would this work with the noids used in M's or Old Vikings? I seem to remember when I was looking for boards you needed proper voltage, which cut out alot of board choices. I remember originally looking at angel lcd frames for M but no boards that fit those frames at the time worked.

Look-XD, if you want to spend a bit of time tinkering with it, old style PMR boards are pretty easy to adapt to old Angel frames, I've done that several times to bring old Angels back to life. They run off 9volts instead of Angel's rechargable batteries, which is awesome, the noid plugs right in. You just need to make a board to hold the microswitch and tinker around if you want the eyes to work, but the buttons line up with the buttons already on the frame, and it's a pretty easy project.

Of course, if you're working on an Evil M, you probably don't want to take ghetto shortcuts, but it's an option

I dont know who told you this, but I know from working on this project that you can actually under volt most 6V noids down to 4.8V and still have them work.

I dont know what the specs are for viking noids, but this board is designed to actuate anything from 5V-6V. It can run also 3V noids, but the inductor will have a shorter life.

Maybe you haven't noticed, but I built these boards specifically for the old angels. I was sick and tired of seeing people running around with the PMR mod because seeing a 9V battery through the grip window is N. A. S. T. Y. Nasty.

My boards put a 9V battery in the frame along with an OLED screen.

Im not going to be making any 90* frame boards, but I'll sell you the prototype if you want. It does have some funky surface mount frame buttons that I thought about using in a production model. There's only one like it. PM me if you are interested.

Is that an angel frame? How are you setting that up on your M?
