DMX Sequenced Servos
I was inspired by the excellent work done by others on these boards using DMX sequencing and various parallax products to interface with them. I decided to take my crack at it using the propeller only with a slightly different spin, pun intended. I decided rather than control lights, why can`t I control motors, solenoids, servos, or other kinds...
In pure servo mode, it is expected that up to 4 unmodified servos are attached to the board. The four servos can be independently controlled. There is current feedback on all four servos. In differential steering mode, the module can control up to 4 servos. The first two servos are expected to be servos that have modified been for continuous rotat
HandyBoard 16 servo addon and software
The expansion board had 6, but I didn`t think that 6 servo ports were worth the price of the expansion. I ended up making a fully reversible modification to my handyboard that gave me 16 servo ports costing a total of about $2, two of the motor ports and a digital input. Aservo motor doesn`t just turn when we apply voltage. instead, it is a...

The Boarduino`s small footprint made me want to see how small of a device I could whip up in an hour from some fairly complex components. So I decided to see how small the combination of a Boarduino, a Wii Nunchuck, and a hobby servo motor could be. Here`s a little video of the result. The Wii Nunchuck is an amazing piece of technology. For $20 yo
With the remote control at your fingertips, you are the only one to decide when and if the parachute should deploy. Ideally, in a very large open field, you can wait until after apogee to deploy the parachute. Depending on wind conditions, you can decide yourself at what height the parachute has to open. This way, you are able to determine for...
