Arduino Projects For Radio Controlled Cars

Article: How To Read an RC Receiver With A Microcontroller - Part 1

Its a very common question, 'How do I read and RC Receiver with my micro controller' and the answer is often very simple however the simple answer is close to useless in a real world application. The approach outlined in this series of posts has been tested in an RC Race car running at 40+ Kmh at a range of 100 meters. The approach is reliable, resilient, easy to understand and easy to modify. It has been tested using using 27Mhz AM radio equipment and entry level electronics. Use of better quality electronics and radio equipment will provide improvements in range and signal quality however as the development process has demonstrated, even low end equipment can be interfaced with Arduino for control of an RC Race car.
