Hi there, I am new to this type of "geometry for electronics" and I have plans to use this type of charlieplexing for my falcon that I have found in my grandfathers attic, non built and unpainted. I would like to build this in remembrance of his "Tinkering" lifestyle.
I have an idea for the rear thrusters that is in a grid of 2 x 15~30 (I may need a better idea as I think I need a lot more than that) of blue LED's, look at Google images if you don't know what the falcons thrusters looks like.
I would like to use 3pin leds, so I can have blue at all times but then a random RED for "faulty" thrusters that "spits" every now and then, turning red for a very brief millisecond and then back to blue every now and then on different leds.
FORGET THE CODE FOR THE MOMENT, I can work on that I think, but I was wondering how I would go about using a schematic like this but I need a 2x20. so in theory I would have 80 led's
am I correct in saying just make up a 9x9x9 charlie and then just layout the leds how I see fit later in the falcon.
I think I am thinking about this all wrong, but this is why I have come to ask for advice.
Thanks for any help given.
