Hello I am new to microcontrollers and I would like a recommendation on which audrino microcontroller is right for what I want to do. I want to build a tabletop motion platform for a flight simulator. Here is a video of what I want to do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdKo9PYwGaU&feature=c4-overview&list=UUz3Mmljnm2myiV6agr-4_Ew
The microcontroller has to be able to support 6 motors, the weight of my motion platform will be around 1.2kg. The arms will weight about 0.01kg each. The motors voltage supply//curent requirement has not been figured out yet. But from the looks of it, the microcontroller have to be able to supply quite a lot of voltage and current.
