hello dear raspi-experts,


this tutorial here - ( regarding the rc car that runs with micropython ) notes the following

Step 4: MicroPython Installation

cf: https://www.instructables.com/id/MicroP ... SP-8266EX/
Step 4: MicroPython Installation First, Wemos has a serial/USB chip based on CH304G. This is the same chip found in cheap Arduino-clones and you must install a proper driver for Mac or PC. Follow the instructions on this site to install the driver.
Connect Wemos to your computer and confirm that your computer could detect Wemos. On Mac, run the following command and you will see a device called /dev/tty.wchusbserial640.

well - is the chip that is mentioned - Wemos has a serial/USB chip based on CH304G - is it on the WEMOS Board or should i add them on a
breakout-board!?

well i want to stick with Mycropython in the project - i want to go this way.

love to hear from you,

regards YOURS SAY

the wemos dev boards have usb ports onboard for power/connection so its already onboard so no need to add anything just plug in a usb lead and install drivers if needed.
