VEX RC with Arduino

Hey Everyone,

I'd like to build a R/C robot using the VEX 75MHz transmitter and receiver and I was wondering if that is compatible with the Arduino Uno or Mega microprocessor boards?

Thanks for the help!

Re: VEX RC with Arduino

I'm working on the next revision for this board to submit for distribution but you can download the schematic and build your own for now.

Re: VEX RC with Arduino

I was going to say not without some sort of interface, but it seems that someone has already designed one, how convenient. I love open source stuff.

Re: VEX RC with Arduino

Alternatively you can clip off the RJ11 connector and connect to the wires directly. There is a library called ServoDecode which will handle interpreting the pulses from the VEX RC receiver.

Re: VEX RC with Arduino

hi guys,
we're new here.
we want to send RF signals from our VEX RC controller and receive them with our Arduino Nano (ATMega328).

PAR_WIG1350 said there's already a library for this?

sjspry said we need to clip the connector and connect the wires directly.
which wire go where ?
where do we start with this?


many thanks
