First step. The controller:
For the remote I'm just found the playstation 2 controller lib
, and just add the display to the top of the controller at a later time. Hacking a ps2 controller could be a easy way to get a controller working? Need to get me a ps2 controller to hack, Gamestop next! There is also some other libraries I could use, someone got a good one to recomend?
Second step. The wireless:
I found some examples for the nrf24l01
, so I need to see if I can get some of these to work.
Third step. The motordriver, servos and digital outputs:
That should be the easy part in this project? I was thinking to do the motor control the easy way, and use a cheap rc esc, but a motor driver could be just as easy?!
Fourth step. Display and telemetry:
How can I measure the voltage of a 7,4V lipo battery and display this value on a display? I can't seem to figure how to connect this to the analogue input? Just make a simple voltage divider, is that exact enough? I want to measure the batteries to prevent damage to the battery (lipo alarm)
Next few steps. Trying to get all steps to work together.
Does this look like a good plan? if I have forgot something or if there is a better way to do something please let me know!
This should be a easy task for a noob? I have programmed a lot of diffrent things and I know a few programming languages, I have never tried C or any derivates of C.... I have a more than basic knowledge of electronics (i used to be a electronics repair dude once), and I know a thing or two of computers. Arduino noob...
Wish me luck! (and please advise if you can!)
