So I purchased the mini-Rambo and read that it was not fully compatible with the mpcnc firmware after it shipped. What features am I missing out on? Should I return it for the full size rambo or another board?March 15, 2018 at 8:33 pm #55265
It is fully compatible, it has 1 less driver than the Rambo board…That is the price difference.March 16, 2018 at 8:06 am #55305
I have the mini rambo in mine and it works great. I think the only “feature” to date that it won’t do is the dual endstop for squaring the machine. Would love to have this feature because its more CNC-like in my mind. But its certainly not a deal breaker. Just takes an extra min or two to set the machine up when you first fire it up. Other than that its all the same.June 3, 2018 at 1:18 pm #60975

Old thread but from https://www.v1engineering.com/mini-rambo-1-3/
The mini-Rambo has four drivers, this means no dual endstop firmware on this board with out some skills and an external driver.
I missed this also but there appears to be hope (my board is on its way already), any chance this additional driver info is documented somewhere?June 5, 2018 at 9:47 am #61112
There should be a pinout chart in the mini rambo wiki but you would also need to add the pins in the firmware.July 12, 2018 at 12:01 pm #63525
Hey all, has anyone found a way to add the extra driver for the mini rambo? I would like to run the endstops but the rambo was out of stock when I ordered so I got the mini. The machine is working fine just would be cool to have. Thanks.August 15, 2019 at 1:09 pm #109755
I would also be interested in the external driver setupAugust 15, 2019 at 1:16 pm #109756
