Forgot all about the radio channels, bonus.
I'm going to add the new stuff one at a time, I want to see if the power supply can handle the extra power with each unit added.

I won't need more than 2 items powered at any time, so I'm hoping to not have to modify the original power supply.

All 4 of the boards are tiny, I've bought small on purpose, I'll get a new thread started later and show the new stuff.

I will be videoing everything too, I will leave a micro sd card in the android box that will have the videos in so anyone can change it back at anytime.
