blade5Pin

Need a 5th data line. I see “blade5Pin” mentioned here and there. What pad is that? I don’t see it listed on the configurator page? TIA

I am fairly certain Data5 was only on v1.5 boards.

Most people just use subblades, it’s often more convenient than 5+ data pins.
However, if you’re not using RX/TX for anything, you can use them as data pins.
In fact, on a V2 board, blade5Pin is RX and blade6Pin is TX.

Oh, and should you really need it, button pads can also be used for neopixel data. :slight_smile:
