Topic: Making a Nunchuck connect to a rc transmitter via trainer cord - help with code (Read 2257 times) previous topic - next topic

Well I would really like to fly my planes using a nunchuck (I bought one for that purpose since i don't have a wii  )...or control a camera on the plane (pan/tilt setup)

The plan is to connect the nunchuck to an arduino nano, which would generate a ppm signal which the rc transmitter turnigy 9x (connects to the trainer port with a 3,5mm audio cable) could read and send info to plane steering it  ..

I've found some relevant link but I can't stitch the code, because I'm code illiterate..It's too advanced for me...

The most relevant link is this one from Ian Johnston: http://www.ianjohnston.com/content/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=30:project-rc-ppm-trainer-port-joystick&catid=3:hobbies&Itemid=8#comment-49

He interfaces joysticks with arduino, I would like to interface a nunchuck.. Is anybody in?

Here is some info about connecting arduino to nunchuck but you probably know better which ones are good: http://www.instructables.com/pages/search/search.jsp?cx=partner-pub-1783560022203827%3Anpr2q7v5m6t&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=connect+arduino+to+nunchuck

Basically I can be the prototyper but I need a coder  would love if someone has a passion to do this...I think it would be a really cool project that you coders could than brag about to your colleagues :D hehe

If you do a search you should find a post regarding a nunchuk that someone was having trouble with.
I posted the code I used to interface a nunchuk (wireless and corded) to an Arduino.
