Is using Transmitter & Reciever from a RC car with Arduino Uno possible?


     Objective: To make a simple remote controlled omni-wheel robot.

     Specs desired (for RC): At least 1 channel

Can I rip a receiver out of a working remote controlled car and use it with an Arduino board?


If the receiver uses "standard" servo PWM control, then yes, you can do that. You will then have to write code to detect the duty cycle of the PWM that comes out of the receiver, and use that data on the Arduino. Using the pin-change interrupt and a microsecond-resolution timestamp ought to make that reasonably simple.

Yes you can do it. I appreciate jwatte's efforts, thanks guys!
