I've been thinking about starting a big project, specifically, making my own Cessna 172 cockpit.
I have experience with Arduinos and I've been thinking about using them in my project. I will be building my own panels and flight instruments, but my question is about the analog gauges I make using small "switec x27.168" stepper motors.
Should I use multiple small arduinos like the pro mini or maybe an Attiny85 for each gauge I make, or get an Arduino Mega (or something like that) and connect multiple stepper motors to it. I would prefer to use smaller arduinos glued to the back of each gauge instead of the mega but I don't have that many USB ports on my PC. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Stefan.
