Hey guys im new to the ardunio world but i have a project due next week ( i just have to have a plan or layout) and i was wondering if you could answer a few of my questions, iam making a gimbal controler using a pro mini or pro micro from sparkfun or whatevers better and small, you have to plug the gyro in and i wanted to run the battery out of my phone because there is a cable that can reverse the cycle and draw power out and the input is micro usb and i know that the pro micro has a micro usb input but does that put power into the board or only transfer the code? And if it doesnt what do i need to connect and will i have to run it through the vcc, secondly on the tutorial the transmitter to send the data to the gimbal was in a remote control but i want mine in the back of a case on my phone what would i have to get to be able to do that and what would i have to get for the reciver aswell ( it plugs into an alexmos controller), also would i be able to add a switch into the circit and an led beside it thats not on the board to show on the outside of the case that it was on off and that it would stop drawing power from the iphone and how would i go about it and i would also like to know how to connect everything to the board like where it goes and how to connect the transmitter and everything, and also what gyro you recommend. i have the code and everything but the tutorial did not explain all of these things well and i was looking for some clarity as i have changed alot of the things iam doing from the tutorial it would be amazing if you could help me
This is the tutorial: http://diydrones.com/m/blogpost?id=705844%3ABlogPost%3A2106482
And this is the reverse power cord( or let me know how to make one on my own or if there is any other better):https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/powerme-turn-any-device-into-a-power-source#/story
