Radio control tutorials

  1. May 5, 2007 #1
    hey i m kinda new at making radio controls..... just made a simple RC with a 2 bit Tx- Rx kit that i got from a local shop.... all my robots are wired... so i want to move on to a proper radio control(coz they dont teach RC makin in mechanical engineering:cry: :cry: ) .....
    can anyone suggest me some tutorials for RC building(for maybe about 6-7 controls , coz currently i m making an all terrain vehicle, a small one, about 80cmX80cm, so i need controls for throttle,brakes,clutch,gear shift, steer )
    plzzzzzzz help........

    Hobby shops will carry transmitters and receivers with many channels. They're usually marketed for model aircraft. The receiver output uses a pulse-width system, which will work directly with any servo or motor controller designed for rc use.
