Pad unit will likely have both a strobe and a speaker, as they are planned
for. I haven't yet done the schematics for those two little circuits, but
not a big deal.
Control unit will also have a speaker.
This design is about a factor of 7992x overkill for what you want - even the
minimum configuration is for 8 pads. Actually, the reason I started this is
that I wanted a good cluster launcher, one that could independently test all
igniters for continuity and shorts. So if you were to do clustering or
drag-racing, the min config might still be appropriate.
Range is unknown as of yet. So much depends on antenna selection, location
on the box, etc. Will just have to wait for field testing.
As to schematic publishing, I will consider. I still haven't written any
code for the PICs yet, so this project is likely several months from
completion (especially given that I've got 2-3 trips planned for the
BTW, 2nd half of second line under "Control Unit Features" should read just
"Keyed lock-out switch"
