Hello and first, thank you for taking the time to read my post.
A little bit of background, necessary to understand what I am trying to do. My friend built an RC boat out of a barracuda kit and balsa wood, mounted an air cannon on it and challenged me. So, I have taken it as a good opportunity to learn. Consulting Jaycar Electronics, they advised me that Arduino Uno v1.0 would be a good starting point. After ripping my hair out trying to connect it to Windows 7, I finally conceded to Linux. Upon re-visiting my friend I acquired a an AM transmitter and bought a 27mhz Christal for it. I also tried to buy a 27mhz receiver but the arduino one they have is FM so I decided to try and build one. After an extensive search, I finally came across the Talking Electronics website and proceeded to build the front end of their 5ch receiver on a solder-less bread board. Not really understanding about the 70t resistor, I called the inventor and found out that it needs to be a tight circuit, which means my bread board design wont work. However I am still optimistic and would like to try it, as is and before I go soldering things together.
Now on to my problem. I would like to start off simply by connecting it to the Arduino and getting the onboard led to flash but I dont know what pins to connect it to or what the program should be. Can anyone help me get started?
My design includes the 10u 22k, 2M2, 10n and BC547 as seen in the image bellow. I have one signal wire leading from the 10n and one earth wire.
Thanks in advance...
