End: One Unimod type B1 finished (Click to enlarge)


Icono aviso.png IMPORTANT! If one Unimod type A1 has already been mounted and we want to build a new Unimod type B1 from it, just unscrew the MY1 module and rotate it 90 degrees clockwise.

Steps 0-3: The same than for the Unimod A1

The step from 0 to 3 are exactly the same than for assembling Unimod type A1:

Step 4: Screw the MY1 module to the Skycube board

Icono aviso.png IMPORTANT! Place the module on top of the Skycube board in the same orientation shown in the picture.

Step 5: Connect the servo and the power supply

  • Connect the servo to the Skycube board to any of the 3-pin headers available (corresponding to servos number 2, 4, 6 or 8). The black wire should be pointing towards the red power switch.

Paso 6: Install the batteries

  • Finally, place the 4 AAA batteries in the battery pack. Turn on Unimod to test the power supply connection. The red led should be on.
