Click “Advanced” in the MakeCode drawer to see more choices.


We need to add a package for programming, . Click “Extensions” in the bottom of the drawer and search with “PlanetX” in the dialogue box to download it.


Note: If you met a tip indicating that the codebase will be deleted due to incompatibility, you may continue as the tips say or build a new project in the menu.

Code as below:



  • The LED lights on if the crash switch was pressed or it lights off.

9.7. Python Programming

Step 1

Download the package and unzip it: PlanetX_MicroPython

Go to Python editor


We need to add enum.py and crash.py for programming. Click “Load/Save” and then click “Show Files (1)” to see more choices, click “Add file” to add enum.py and crash.py from the unzipped package of PlanetX_MicroPython.

crash = CRASH(J1)

while True:
    button = crash.crash_is_pressed()
    if(button == True):
