PC -> Arduino -> RC brushless motor

OK, pretty simple stuff, I happened to have this video around. I send servo positions (as strings not bytes) from the PC program to the arduino, which runs a PMW to drive the motor controller. I wrote the program originally to test servos. I'm thinking about adding a RPM sensor and eventually measure battery voltage and current and all that, eventually...

Since it's pretty simple to do, and has probably been done hundreds of times before, I'm not going to explain too much here, unless anyone is interested.




that looks pretty neat! Do you mind giving an overview of what you have done or sharing your code? I haven't had time to play with the arduino yet and this is the sort of thing I want to do with it. It'll be great if you could give me a few hints!

take care,


nice! i'm guessing processing?
