Title: Arduino radio control
Post by: Rodgearing on August 06, 2020, 09:23:59 AM
Found a you tube video of some one building a 6 channel RC using a Arduino Nano nice bit of self build the thing was there was no code
Just wonder if any one else has seen it  If yeshave you the sketch?
Have a look here

Download the library and then follow this video for instructions on how to install a library into the IDE

If you get stuck let me know..

Just a quick update in case this inspires anybody to build an nRF24L01 based radio.

In my expereince the nRF24L01 boards vary dramatically in quality and ability - don't be surprised if you struggle to get 75-100 meters.

So if you take this route don't test the kit out on your "prized possesion"
