I decided to look only at the 3CH one & also this 4CH 'FlySky' receiver.
The other micro type was a thought which can be ignored.
Thanks for your fixing of that extra thread.

The 3CH one & this FS-2A 4CH receiver are easy to use for most things.


Cheers.

Rob.

To the moderators:
Somehow Rob's thread of yesterday featuring an interesting small-outline FlySky RX with bidirectional capabilities seems to be gone . It's true that it isn't compatible with Rob's intentions, but I think the info should be kept in the RC thread nevertheless - this device offers a possibility to establish two-way comms in RC. Admittedly you have to build your own µC-based controller to use it properly and it may not be suited for the smaller scales right away - but it may be a kick-off for the freaks ( like me ) to play around with it.

" I think more folks would participate in the RC forum if we had a "RC for Dummies" tutorial.
Some of the talk is so convoluted that it's hard to grasp what is being said unless you are an EE."



Whats  " µC " ?

I cant even find that weird backwards U on my keyboard


:f:

µ means micro.

Yeah with you on that Tony

I did Piethagerass at junior high

Like casino odds 1/1000000


I still dont know what " µC " is or where µ is on my keyboard

I had to copy and paste that µ in

Copied that last one in as well


:f:

µC = Microcoulombs

I know you can use key codes on your computer keyboard to obtain the symbol but I don't know what the codes are.
When I need it, I copy it across from my Word symbols.

I Googled micro coulomb-based controller and found a YouTube video

I understood that a micro coulomb is 10^-6 coulombs

The charge of an electron is -1.602*10^-19 C had me stumped

The maths Professor in the video was seriously hot though

Ive always liked brainy chicks

No idea why


:f:

@Eddy Current
µ is easily achieved by depressing the 'AltGr' and 'm' simultaneously.
Oh - just found out that this is on US International ( and other languages ) only- you Yanks ( US English ) have to use the right 'Alt' to hopefully get the same result. A µC is just a microcontroller - definitely not so hot as the professor on that video (Where's the link?)

I connected the power backwards to a PIC uC and it got pretty hot! If we want more than what is offered off-the-shelf for control systems then we should know how to program these devices (or know someone like Helmut, who does). Some of my monorails have 2 or 3 onboard to control speed/direction/lights/sound.

Where Alt and AltGr are on a PC my MAC has a weird squiggly square symbol with circles in the corners

Cant get it to make a µ or do anything else

I would call the Apple helpline but last time I paid some kid 10 Bucks a minute to call me an idiot

Bob just threw in a "PIC uC" without the µ maybe he has a MAC as well

That seems to be either a Peripheral Interface Controller or a Programmable Intelligent Computer


" chain posts are a PITA to read. Some of them are on the way to me from China "


I think Helmut has mail ordered some ethnic flat bread on Ebay

Just need to work out what PWM VCC GND GHZ DBM are after Ive had a cold one


:f:
