Need code for puppet. Will Pay $

Hi, I made a jigsaw puppet and I need code to run the 3 servos and mp3 player in the puppet itself and the drive motor and steering servo on the tricycle. I would like it to run from a wireless remote and also to be sound or light activated. I am trying to learn arduino and I have a very basic understanding but I have ADD and dyslexia so It has been a huge challenge, I would rather pay someone to whip something up for me. I have arduino nanos, unos, adafruit motor shields, a 16 channel servo board, bluetooth modules, NRF24s, MP3 module, pretty much all the hardware needed. Thanks

Six outputs, two sensor inputs, one wireless input and one (app?). Unless what you want it to do is absolutely trivial, you’re already well into $,$$$ not $. Have you budgeted $2,000+ for this?

You should probably provide more specifics about what you want all those motors, etc. to do.

Seriously? $2000+ for what?

For a basic interpretation of what you asked for. The app alone could cost more than that. I think I was being optimistic, but maybe you should flesh out your request with "servo 1 should do x, servo 2 do Y, music plays when..." etc.
In any case, that would be my cost, there are often people available to work for less, so don't be disheartened.

You seem to have all the electrical and electronic stuff, but do you have ALL the mechanical connections and structure ready to test the software?

I should have been more clear in the description but I figured I could hash out the details privately once I found someone to do the code for me. I won't be running from an app although that would be pretty cool. I was planning on using just a two joystick remote control. Its also not some elaborate movie quality animatronic puppet. Its made of cardboard and paper mache and some 3d printed parts. It is only supposed move his eyes and head side to side and laughs and says "Do you want to play a game?" I honestly didn't think the code would be that elaborate. I pieced together a code just to run the tricycle and its only like 12 lines.

The problem with explaining what you want to do in private is that you're limiting the number of people who might be interested in helping. There might even be someone who's done exactly what you need, but they'll never know that if there isn't enough detail.

If you'd said this in your initial post:

then what you wanted would have been much clearer. Remember, that you know exactly what you want to do, the rest of us don't, so we have to get a rough idea of the complexity from very little information.

When I look at a post on this forum, I need to decide (1) is this something I'd want to work on, (2) is this roughly a $75, $750, or $7500 project and (3) is this person asking for $7,500 of work but thinks it's only worth $7.50?

Now, with your updated information, this is closer to a $750 project than a $2,000 one, but it's still not a $75.

I'm not picking on you, I'm trying to explain what goes through the mind of someone as they're trying to figure out what someone posting for project help on this forum is really looking for. In the end, you're going to have to explain what you need done anyway, so might as well put that in your first post.

That is a good point. Thank you for the advice. Looks like I am going to have to figure out a way to write the code myself.
