The PCBs for the analog version of my X-Pad shield for D1 Mini board arrived while I was away. Initial inspection looks good, I will probably finish it during the weekend.


And here it is, assembled and programmed dual analog joystick shield for the D1 Mini, here shown with an OLED shield stacked on top.

And of course I discovered that I have two grounds on that PCB, not connected together, so the right stick and button don't work. Nothing that a simple bodge wire can't fix, of course, but it's annoying that I'm still making such beginner mistakes.
