I am interested in controlling my RC cars via my arduino. I hooked up my arduino to an oscilloscope to view the PWM signal. When I get the scope all dialed in, the scope shows me multiple instances of the same period on the screen. However, when I hook up the the RC receiver to the scope I only see one instance of the period on the screen. Why are they different in this manner?
Nevermind, I figured it out. RC equipment uses PPM not PWM. And the arduino servo library uses PPM, while analogWrite is PWM.
MODs please delete.

It doesn't work that way.
