GoPro Remote v2

Robert Stefanowicz has been working on the second version of a GoPro remote with a display and buttons. On Euerdesign, he wrote a tutorial on how to get your own cheap and powerful GoPro remote. In this remote, he actually etched his own PCB from a layout printout. The following items are required for this tutorial:

one sided PCB plate for etching
safety glasses and gloves
50g sodium persulphate (N06CG)
some pin headers
1x 6 pin OLED Display (GND, VCC, SCL, SDA, RST, D/C)
3x pushbuttons
1x ESP8266 ( I used the 07, but 12 should work aswell)
3 x 33kOhm SMD resistors
1x AMS1117 voltage regulator 3,3V
1x USB to TTL converter
some jumpercables for programing
soldering iron (if you dont own one, stop reading here, close this page )
plastic vessel for etching
a piece of a glossy magazine
