I am currently working on a RC paintball gun turret. I have 2 servos controlled by a 3ch Hitec Aggressor for the tilt/pan. I want to use the 3rd channel (intended for a gear shifter on an RC car) to shoot the gun.
The gun is a Tippman A5 w/ egrip. Ive already hacked the gun and can shoot it via my Arduino Duemilanove. All I have left to do is figure out how to read the output of the Hitec receiver and convert that to something I can use (input from the 3rd channel = gun shoots).
I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.
