the description pretty much says everything important but the pictures are no longer accurate (I've added the long range NRF and a USB extender going from the Arduino's mini USB out the back of the shell where it terminates in the Arduino Uno's printer USB (i forget the name). i have definitely shelved the project because the plane crashed and broke a wing and i'm too laze to fix it (because even if i do have a functional plane i still cant fly for shit). i have decided to try flying a cheaper plane (that floats better when i crash it into a river) but the only way to control those servos is with my regular RC transceiver and PWM receiver. I figured the solution was just to build an NRF PWM receiver to replace the store-bought one. this is a bit of an issue because i really want it to be small. there are a few ways to do this but i need some assistance with most of them. the ESP8266 (as a module) is small enough to be paired with the SMD long range variant of the NRF. that with a 3.3V voltage regulator only has one issue: the logic level of the ESP. There are of course 2 smaller atmega328P variants (as far as i'm aware) that would do great, however i have not gotten a chip (which was programmed in an Arduino Uno) to run blink separately (maybe wrong crystal?) and i own a chip that was crudely salvaged from a Nano, but i do not know if it still works and i cant make PCB's at home. Once the summer ends i would be able to make an Arduino Nano inspired PCB that incorporates the SMD NRF. If i'm doing that i might as well make a PCB for the ESP32 chip that uses logic level converters and connects via bluetooth/wifi to a phone. This will be difficult and i have 0 experiance with making apps but i'd like to learn. all 'n all this project is shelved untill i am feeling like flying again.
(or a similar unit (preferrably not the basic integrated antenna ones))
