Should I use Arduino for big projects, like a personal jet device? Or should I use an other single-board microcontrollers as Beagle?
Thanks in advance.

Using an Arduino for something as trivial as a Jet is a waste of resources. Personally I would use one or at most two SE555 devices. I like the SE over the NE because the metal can parts will operate better in the high G turns.

I agree with Kevin. You can actually use a 556, equivalent to 2 x 555 (datasheet here: http://www.national.com/mpf/LM/LM556.html#Overview)

Not sure we can tell you. Are you over 18 years of age.  ;)

Take a look:


And you are claiming that it is being powered with a jet engine?
What would you wish the Arduino or any other controller board to perform for that craft?

I'm not sure mom will approve it.  :)

Pah!

AWOL is right, I used SE555 to control all the time functions in my jet back in July 3, 1985.  The darn thing completely disappeared on July 5, 2010 but I have hopes it may turn up again  by October 21, 2015.   Should have stuck by the venerable 1N914 and avoided a load of trouble.
