Kite's Circuit Gem - shoulder buttons?

Post by HollandJim » Sun Feb 24, 2019 10:52 pm

This'll be my first build (once the battery arrives from China, of course) so I'm really excited, but I'm also an absolute noob; I'm tinning wires now just to build up soldering skills. That also implies I'm not sure what I'm looking at on the board, so it might be obvious but is there any support for shoulder buttons?

The included 3pin cable goes into the 3pin connector near the bottom of the board, if you wire it so that GND is common on both buttons, and each button has 1x wire of L1 and R1 respectively, they will be the L/R buttons when shorted to GND by the button.
