    Killed 2 Pi Zero W today :( Why?!

    Hi Bryan, turns out the Pi must have died, the heater meter doesn't work when the pi is attached, the screen just flickers and nothing is useable, as soon as the pi is taken out of the equation, the flickering and dead machine turn on and works fine so it must be the pi, i noticed the pi's...

    HeaterMeter First test Fire

    Yeah the more I use it the better I will get at working it out. Is there a code that could be written to "autotune" . So the system could work out the best settings to use and adjust itself to them? I owned a PID before and that had a learn feature that must of worked out the best settings and...
