Elegoo Uno Super Starter Kit

Just a quicky: possibly you know Elegoo.com for their 3D printers? That’s how I know them – however, they just sent me their Uno R3 Super Starter Kit – which includes an Uno and a shedload of sensors, wires, buzzers, motors, a CD with sample code and libraries… and more – see photo below for more. There’s even a 9-volt battery included.

As I’m not a beginner it seems only fair to offer this kit to the first subscriber (important that your details are correct in the blog profile) who requests it – as I’m in Southern Spain there’s the slight matter of covering my postal costs which will depend on where the package is being shipped to.

      1. Hi Peter,

        Just before I take the plunge, I’ve noticed you talking about Arduino and Raspberry Pi in many of your posts, could you answer a couple of questions for me.

        As a beginner, which is easier to get started with?

        Looking at the pricing, I assume the Raspberry Pi is more powerful (and more useful)?

        Which of the two is better at interfacing with the real world?

        If I start with one is the programming I learn any help with the other.

        Regards,

        Paul

        1. Arduino easier to start with – clearly different and less expensive compared to Raspberry Pi. Easy to start with. Real world – Arduino easier – for example to turn things on and off etc. It handles real time better than the Pi. My choice was to start with Arduino, move to ESP8266 and at the same time start playing with RPI – now my setup includes one RPi controlling lots of ESP8266, some of which use Arduino (I programmed my own “universal peripheral) that way – its on the blog somewher) as the ESP8266 is a little short of GPIOs – and of course there are Arduino-compatible ways to program the ESP8266 – indeed most folk seem to do it that way.
