Title: First Arudino project
Post by: timgarrod on January 23, 2017, 07:25:08 PM
I had the Arudino for a few month now. as the lake was frozen Yesturday  >:-o , I thought it was a good time to start using it.

this was just a proof of concept to see how to link the transmitter to the arudino.

The first version was just to turn a Led on/off with the switch which worked, then tried it on three position switch so had light on then flashing then off. Here i came a cropped but soon as i posted the code on FB someone found the error  :-)) .

The idea when expanded so can using it on my nordney crane so when the led are flashing the servo will turn.
here's the out come

I now hooked with these and now can see me using these all the time on my models.

Hi timgarrod


That looks very interesting,
how difficult is it to program? What equipment do you need including p/c or tablet?


Look forward to seeing more of your projects

Hi Spud,

Used mine laptop but can see why a tablet can't be used.

with all the info online and help from others, it seems ok (untill you get into conplex coding  %% ),
I like the idea that its so flexible.

cheers Tim
