I am a complete newbie looking to get into arduino for an installation I am working on and looking to get some vague overview of the areas I should be looking into and how different components relate to each other.
The project involves a large helium balloon around 3m diameter that will be attached via string to a winding mechanism similar to a rotating winch. I would like the string to be unwound allowing the balloon to rise to the programmed height at the push of a button and then after a 30 seconds automatically wind back again to another set balloon height.
Any overview / suggestions would be great! Thanks
