RC Car hack


Hello folks,

Right now, I'm trying to control an RC Car from my computer. Yesterday, I bought a cheap RC car from a local toy store. As you can see in the picture above, I've already done some work on its controller. This will be a fun project as I could put a camera on the car and do all sorts of cool stuff!

Well..I hope I'm successful in controlling it. Keep visiting.

You sould use sevral diffrent pins to control rsistance of the variable resister in the controller. If you get what I mean. The best speed control, is bang-bang, pulses of the motor, bigger pulses faster speed. Good Luck
