how do you use existing RC to control somthing else? Answered

trying to make a battle bot and am not to hot on the idea to spend big bucks on other equipment to remote control it. can anyone help


I'm not convinced that hooking up a deliberately dangerous machine to kluged radio control is a Good Idea... methinks I would want something with a lot of redundancy, so I could be sure it was going to do only and exactly what I told it to. The last thing you want is some kid's toy happening to fire it up.

+ one. If it's not safe it won't get past the tech inspection and then you've wasted all your money.

Yup. The fighting 'bot organizations all have very stringent requirements for the control systems used in their arenas. Best to save money elsewhere.
