I'm new to the forum and electronics and am after a bit of guidance.
I recently gave up my hobby of flying radio controlled jets and decided I needed to something else to keep me amused.
At the ripe old age of 60 I decided that I want to learn electronics as it has always interested me and also frustrated me as I didn't fully understand how the little gizmos that I used in my RC hobby worked. I have assembled many electronic kits over the years that worked but, I never understood how they worked.
I have purchased the Make-electronics book and the two kits they supply and am working my way through that. I was able to do programming several years ago in the days of basic, pascal etc. I'd also like to get into Arduino. I am not sure which board to purchase as there is a good selection. I don't want to start with the beginners kit as I have the breadboard, components etc. I also don't want to buy the most basic unit nor the most advanced. So what do I buy that is not too advanced but that I can grow into?
Would appreciate some guidance.
