Today we have a great tutorial from SparkFun employee Nick Poole. You may know Nick from some of his work in the product videos, as he is often instrumental in the creation of the devices for the demos. This time, Nick has made a fairly detailed tutorial about pairing an RC Hobby Controller with an Arduino. Read all about it here!
In this tutorial, Nick will guide you through using an RC transmitter, an Arduino, and other bits and bobs to get straightforward wireless control over your project. "Why not just use XBee?!," you might be thinking. Well, we love XBee and it definitely has its time and place, but sometimes you just want a good ol' fashioned RC joystick. Check out the tutorial for all the info, including sample code.
