Harsha Alva there are 4 servo outputs, anyone of them can be used for override button. i forgot to give a dedicated button. i’ll edit this file and replace ft232 with ch340 and provide a dedicated override button.

Abhi Verma Can’t we use a CH340 USB TTL cable and keep 4 pin headers on the board instead of onboard CH340?

Abhi Verma Does FT232 install driver automatically on Windows? If you feel this is better, keep this. CH340 may get spoilt sooner.

ft232 drivers are already available in arduino ide. can use use ttl converter but that will add cost to customer. ch340 is only 40 rs and this gives easy customization of board.
