Servo. The word itself is reeks with coolness. Combine that with the power of the WiiMote joystick and an arduino to… steer a boat or plane for example. We’ve found two fantastic tutorials to get you started in your WiiMote joystick controlled mod.Ã‚ First up, you’ll need to learn the basics of arduno servo control using a potentiometer.Ã‚ Basically, if you turn the pot to the eight, the servo copies. If you turn it to left, same thing.
After you’ve mastered the potentiomenter, let’s move onto servo joystick control.Ã‚ Slightly more complicated, but nothing you can’t handle.Ã‚ Finally, apply your joystick mastery to something useful, like controling a boat rudder. Don’t no much about Arduino? Learn from our Arduino 101 tutorial.Ã‚ The video below is a bit slow, skip through to see how the system works in more detail.
