Did you buy from emaker.hk?

Got the same thing

Bought a mega, it works but all the connections are soldered crooked so i cant fit any shields

Same here, works like a charm. you rock dude smiley-wink

Weird. I tried win xp but wihtin a vmware. I'll reinstall win xp on my test rig and give it a try

anyone got a solution yet ?

Same problem

however i did notice the arduino is constantly sending 4 byte messages

captured over 5 seconds:

F5   B2   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   86   22   FA      F5   B6   52   FA      F5   86   52   FC      F5   86   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      49   86   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   B1   52   FA      F5   86   22   FA      F5   86   22   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   A6   52   FA      F5   86   52   FA      F5   B1   52   FA   F5   86   52   FA

Very simple yet very effective solution

Its working now. I send c5 in hex and i get 18bytes of data back.

Thank you

Hi

I am trying to connect my mini-z car to an arduino mega board so I can read and change several parameters. (a mini-z is a small RC car running on 4 AAA batteries)


The cable to do this with a pc is like this: http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?p=343711

The mini-z car has a vcc 5V; GND and one signal connection. The above circuit converts the rs232 voltage into 5V for the mini-z

The problem is there is only one signal carrier for both transmission and receiving data. I know to little of electronics to convert the circuit.

I have been able to do make a program on the PC, so the protocol etc is no problem, its connecting the damn thing to the arduino.
