Abstract | Entry

With an LM3S9B96 microcontroller and some ingenuity, it’s possible to upgrade and customize a fairly simple RC system without breaking the bank. The project’s purpose is to improve a basic 2.4-GHz RC radio system—comprising a basic two-channel transmitter and five-channel receiver—so it works as well as a pricey high-end RC radio.
