Hi,

This post is a better starting point for reading a single channel -

http://rcarduino.blogspot.ae/2012/01/how-to-read-rc-receiver-with.html

For a very simple project thats just going to use one channel and if your not interested in learning how things work you could just use the Arduino pulseIn function.

Hi,

Is the effect from 0:50 in this video the grain decay, if so, its a pretty good filter alternative ?

There is an easy but time consuming work around which is to port the code.

No idea how technical you are but if your upto it you need to find one 8 bit and one 16 bit timer on the Leonardo and then port the existing timer code based on the UNO to use the equivalent Leonardo timers.

How technical are you ?

4  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: Are motors really water proof? on: February 12, 2014, 01:57:13 pm
A common tunning technique for stock brushed motors in RC Racing is to running them on low power for five minutes submerged in a glass of water. Look up 'water dipping motors' - essentially the water acts like an abrasive to bed the carbon brushes to the commutator and generate a little more power, it may also have a similar effect on the brass bushings that act as bearings in low cost stock motors.

Example here - http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-drifting-304/5583008-how-water-dip-new-motor-10-step-guide.html

Outside of breaking in a new racing motor which has a short life anyway, its still a bad idea.

As others have said, you probably would not want to send an RC Signal from one Arduino to be read by another, but in case you really really wanted to -

http://rcarduino.blogspot.ae/2012/01/how-to-read-rc-receiver-with.html

You could actually generate a servo signal and read it back on the same Arduino without even using a wire, just generate the signal using the standard servo library on the same pin that you want to use to read the signal - probably pin 2, I sometimes do this sort of thing for loop back tests.

Hi,

As I get asked for this and some of the other RCArduino projects on a daily basis, I have uploaded the zipped project folders to google drive.

See here http://rcarduino.blogspot.ae/2014/02/rcarduino-downloads.html

More to follow.

Thanks to all who tried the link, as it seems to be an easy way to share zipped projects I have started uploading some of the rcarduino projects.

More to follow,

Thanks again

Duane.

I get a page that shows the individual files, but if I select

File/Download,

the dialog box shows IllutronBDEmo0_2.zip which contains all of the files, do you guys see this or some other file in the dialog ?

Thanks

Duane.

This one ?

The select file/download ?

Thanks

Hi,

I am trying google drive, can anyone test this link for me -

https://drive.google.com/?authuser=0#folders/0B8WjAvuO3LnIdDJUSmxLc2hvdEk

It should download the illutronB code in a zip file.

Thanks

Hi,
 As the old timers will know I write rcarduino.blogspot.com, its quite popular with around 1,000 visits per day.

 Whereever possible I have put the tutorial code directly in the blog posts, this is a bit ugly but better than nothing.

 In other cases the projects involve more files or a directory structure that is not practical to put directly into a blog post.

 Is there any way to add the projects to Arduino forum or arduino.cc as downloadable zip files, or would any of the established users (mods ?) be willing to host the code for me so that I can add links in the posts and not have to ask people to contact me through Arduino forum and wait for me to get around to sending them the code ?

Let me know if you can help,

Thanks

Duane B

Better still, get one decade counter for less than a dollar and a cheap kids keyboard and build one of these -
