So my son just got a second hand Dark knight batpod, which is basically an IR remote controlled toy, but the remote control is missing.
I had an idea of trying to build myself a IR transmitter to control the batpod but of course not having the original control makes it a challenge and that is why I require the assistance of the community!
My idea is to "bruteforce" the protocol, by trying all possible bits in various frequencies to see if something happens and try to understand the basic controls for the toy.
I've made multiple projects with RF in the past, but IR was always kind of a black box for me, although I understand the basic principle of how it works.
My questions are: Is this feaseable? Is there anyway in which I can reduce the number of possibilities (i.e. find the frequency)?
Thank you in advance!
