    hi i have been having a move around with my rig.
    i have had a quick look at the wind simulation FAQ and was going to add it to my rig, what i really wanted to know is can this be done with the rc car electronic speedo and ardiuno.
    i did see someone bring this up but i got abit lost in translation ect looking....

    basically i have about 20 speedos and arduino and if possible i am poss ready to get started i have also rc plane induction fans and poss speedos if i can find them.

    i also have rc motor prpops i could fit to them.

    has this been done with that kit at all.

    thank you all.

    R/C car speed controllers just take the same 1-2 ms pulse width so you should be able to do it with an Arduino. Not sure how many steps you will get but Arduinos run servos all the time so I’m sure you’re good for wind.

    Good luck!

    I need to look more into the coding i did get an led to light n flash i coded myself
    Fairly new to arduino game but thought if i can work a few things out with the speedo n like i was thinking its just a servo it might work out like you say.
    Im gunna dig some stuff out tomoz if get time and get the motor/ fan running via rc way then look into arduino but coding to the speed in game i am bound to fall short.
    Silentchills code wont work well donv think it would.
