I am constructing my first robot and am in high school, so I do not have great exposure to robot construction.
Now that my intro is done, here's my question:
Is it possible to use TWO 4-channel transmitters to control a robot that is equipped with only ONE 8-channel receiver?
I think I know what I have to do, but am not very sure how to implement my idea. Since every channel has a (slightly)different frequency, I could possibly assign the first 4 channels on the receiver to the first transmitter, and the second four channels on the receiver to the second transmitter. However, this assigning of channels is what is creating a problem for me. First, is it possible to assign channels like that? If it is not, could other ideas work?
More background info:
The 2 transmitters are Hitec Laser 4 75Mhz(surface, 4 channels) each, and the receiver is a regular surface 8-channel receiver.
Our school's budget, my limited knowledge, and the remaining time unfortunately do not let me explore microcontrollers and some 7-channel programmable transmitters. However I will learn how to work with 'em if those are what are required for my job. Just waiting for ur feedback....
Thanks a lot
