 Yep, I agree.
 Maybe the first step is a "simple" REQUEST-RESPONSE system.
 The computer sends a request to one Gun at a time and receives a Data Package with the current status. At each complete response loop, the computer updates the overall scoreboard.
 What do you think?

  I'm reading about the radio modules too, as well as the mesh network implementation.
 Getting a live score will be a huge step forward.  :D
Mesh network is difficult.
To realize real-time statistics viewing, we can do without mesh networks.

There is an alternative to radio modules - the use of smartphones.

I think we need to develop both directions.

Guys, what about these radio modules?
SI4432

I think they are better suited for our purposes than NRF24.

I went ahead and recreated the PCB files for the REV H board in eagle.  I have exported to gerber files also.  I have not tested the production version of this but I am sharing for anyone willing to try it.


gerber sch and brd file included along with exported library.

Thanks very much Coolasice for the files.

  Is the component with Red arrow wrong?
 Now I saw the schemme, and see many Caps with polarity. In this case, ceramic Caps are wrong, isn't it?

If this ceramic capacitor is 10 uF (or more), then it's ok.
Let it remain, this is a filter for the supply voltage.


In the Blue Arrow is ceramic Caps?

Yes - 0.1 uF

Uow... it's hard...

Therefore, I am ready to start production of fully assembled devices.
And that the cost was democratic.
That the person had a choice - to be assembled by yourself or buy a ready-made device.
I do not know - can we discuss such issues here?


P.S. And for me, soldering is already like meditation - I even enjoy it. 
Now I understand women who embroider with a bisser.;) :D

P.P.S. I am confused by the USB connector on your photo.
What kind of connector is it like the location of the contacts?

 Ohhh, I used a lot MAX232 when I worked with LED Panels in 2000.
 
 Please, help me again...

Working hard here, I know there are some questions to answer you... I will.
 
 But, one more question for you... How to install bootloader and code in STM? Onboard USB or I'll need a programmer?


The loader is a separate program.
It can be downloaded in two ways:
1. Using the SWD connector and the ST-Link programmer (or its clone). ST-Link also allows debugging programs directly in the controller.
2. Using the UART connector. If there is a COM port on the computer, you will need an adapter RS232 <-> UART, for example, on the MAX3232 chip. If there is no COM port, you can use the USB <-> UART adapter .


After the loader is swirled into the controller, the firmware can be changed via the onboard USB connector.
