I am new to this forum and have come to you because I have nowhere else to go! I hope you can help me!
OK so I bought this old "Intruder" Radio Shack radio controlled truck at a garage sale. I was hoping to interface it with my arduino duemilanove and control it with either a wifi or bluetooth shield as some others have done: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1194054658 http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1286526673
but... the car's circuit board does not appear to have the usual Realtek Rx2/Tx2 chip...
Here are some pics of the board:http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/855/img0290jg.jpg/http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/7/img0291ni.jpg/
There seem to be three chip-like things near the center of the board but I have no idea what their function is. There also are two large metal objects in the right hand side of the board, which I am fairly certain are the H-Bridges. However, I am lost on where to go from here.
I don't have much experience with these kinds of "electrical engineering" things or with my Arduino in general - I'm still in high school; however I'm always ready to learn!
I hope you guys can help me and thank you so much in advance!
