Finished boards have been received from assembly and everything checks out, no problems have been detected so far. The boards have been gradually brought to life with minor hiccups in the software like forgetting the micro now controls the radio shutdown pin or the I2C address of the accelerometer has changed from prototyping with a different model.
The range has been tested to 130 meters in open space with 434MHz, 14dbm, using GFSK modulation with no manchester encoding, data rate of 2.4kbps and 36KHz deviation. I will try different configurations though.
I am also going to try to use the board as a USB CDC for displaying received data on the computer so the FTDI UART to USB converter is not needed.
