If you use the barrel jack (rather than Vin) you get the benefit of the reverse-polarity protection, plus that diode drops 0.7V which takes some of the load off the voltage regulator.
I'm using the Nano though, no barrel jack.

Sweet, some great tips! Question - if I short out digital outputs (by accident, of course) would that be equivalent to shorting out the LiPo itself?

Is it safe to use a 11.1V 1300mAh LiPo Battery designed for RC cars/planes with my new Arduino Nano? I read that the Nano can operate on 6-20V with 7-12V being recommended, so it sounds to me like it would be fine?

Also, I know I plug the positive lead into VIN (pin 30) so do I plug the negative lead into GND?

It's been a while since I've done any electronics tinkering, please excuse my noobiness.

Thanks!

This is really cool! I have the same camera and I really want to build one of these now! Do you have a Flickr or anything where you post your high-speed photos?

Awesome! Thanks for the information and links!

I'm looking to develop an autonomous drone using an Arduino interfaced with an Android phone. The Arduino and phone will be mounted inside of an RC plane. All I'm looking for the Arduino to do is control the motors/servos of the RC plane based on input from the Android phone. My question is, how difficult is it to interface an Android app with an Arduino board? Are there any tutorials on doing so, or does anyone have any advice?

Thanks!
