Hi everyone! This is my next project - Arduino 4WD RC Car with Joystick Controller or How easy it is to control an Arduino 4WD Smart Car with an analog Joystick.
This RC joystick controlled car uses NRF24l01 as the transmitter and reciever. It has a range up to 1 kilometer in open space. Also is very simple and easy to make.
Joystick shield sits atop your Arduino and turns it into a simple controller. 7 momentary push buttons (4 big buttons, 2 small buttons, and a joystick select button) and a two-axis thumb joystick gives your Arduino functionality on the level of the old Nintendo controllers. This unit also offers Nokia 5110 LCD and nRF24L01 interfaces.
Actually, it is labelled as BTE16-49 - nRF24L01+RFX2401C +PA+LNA wireless communication modules with antenna shielding case 2.4GHz 20dbm 1000m.
Joystick Shield has 4 big buttons + 2 small buttons + joystick select button and a two-axis thumb joystick (X-axis from 0 to 1023, Y-axis from 0 to 1023) The shield sits on top of your Arduino and turns it into a simple controller. In my sketch Button Up is for Buzzer (horn), Button Right - front light (LED + resistor 200 Ohm), Button Left - back ligts (LEDs + resistor 200 Ohm). Other buttons are not used.
