A lot of you are probably wondering (or maybe not) why i haven't posted anything more on the arduino robbe multi-prop/multi-switch decoder that i started a thread on here a few months ago...
i got distracted, but it is finished now, so unless distracted by something else, i should have something to post on the decoder soon.
it uses a MCU board purchased here: http://ar9x.net/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=57
and a cheap chinese pistol radio (FlySky GT3b) as its basic frame, and runs firmware called "erskye9x", which allows me to use up to 16 channels for controlling different things like lights and smokers, and has incredible mixing for things like multiple throttles and rudder mixing, or 4 wheel steering on r/c rock crawlers. I built it with a standard JR style module socket, so by switching modules, i can control any receiver from most of the RTR vehicles available.
