Step 1: What You Will Need
AAA battery holder (or AA battery)
LEDs + resistor (im using UV LEDs because I have so many of them)
I got all these parts (plus alot more) in the arduino ultimate starter kit
Step 2: Code First
and upload to the arduino
Step 3: Setting Things Up
place thumbstick upside down on breadboard.
2-AXIS JOYSTICK label should be facing you, but upside down.
L/R on your left should be connected to A0 on your arduino.
L/R+ on your right should be connected to positive.
GND on your right should be connected to ground.
servo positive and ground should be connected to positive and ground.
servo input should be connected to ~9 on your arduino.
Step 4: Decorations
connect LEDs to the battery pack
I hot glued the servo to the pack to keep it small
my battery pack had a switch on it so I used that to turn the lights on and off. you can add your own switch.
