Hello from Iraq,
I am, or was, building an RC arm with grippers. I want to use CH 7, which is only an off and on switch, to control the gripper. My only focus for now is to pick up a full coke can. I want to connect a FSR to the servo so I can flip the switch and have a controlled grab on the hand. As is, I have to set the servo at a certain angle which is stressing the servo.
I found a FSR with three leads, is there any way to connect this directly to the servo, as in the potentiometer leads, or do i need some sort of circuitry, or MCU.
Been flying planes for a while but I'm brand new to the microcontroller word.
trying to have it all figured out by the time I go home.
