Steam turret tank R/C controller

Posted on Monday, September 29th, 2014 in DIY, PIC by DP


An instructable for a PIC based R/C servo controller by Steamhobby:

The controllers capture the R/C receiver output, optionally manipulate the samples, then regenerate new servo control signals. As such, they greatly enhance what is possible with cheap servos.  They were created for my Steam Turret Tank Instructable.
