Parts & DIY PCB Installation 

  Modify old remote body for installing electrical parts.
DIY PCB Building
 Connecting electronic parts on PCB according to circuit diagram and solder them.

Arduino Nano pin to Joystick
Pin No :
A0 - Left Horizontal pin (X-Axis)
A1 - Left Vertical pin (Y-Axis)
A2 - Right Horizontal pin (X-Axis)
A3 - Right Vertical pin (Y-Axis)
Arduino Nano pin to Potentiometer
Pin No :
A4 - Signal output pin
nRF24L01 module Socket Adaptor to Arduino Nano
Pin No :
Vcc - 5 V. supply (Do not connect 5V. directly to nRF24L01 module,it's supplied only 3.3V.)
GND - GND
CE - 9
CSN - 10
SCK - 13
MO - 11
MI - 12
IRQ - 2

*If you have communication problem,you can change connection from pin 13,11,12 to pin SCK,MOSI,MISO of Nano programming pins.
*It's necessary to add 0.1 microF to nRF24L01 module pin Vcc/GND because the module needs stable current and voltage.
*You can use other electrical plastic box to be remote frame.(This instruction use old RC toy car remote.)
Software Installation
Arduino sketch and Library :
1.Down load sketch file .ino and library zip file for nRF24L01 module from GitHub.
2.Add library zip file to Arduino IDE.You will see new library RF24-master in Examples menu.
3.Before using new nRF24L01 modules,we shall burn the modules by uploading default sketch pingpair and GettingStarted for tuning up frequency otherwise it will has uncommunication problem.(Use another Arduino Nano and nRF24L01 modules for pairing)
4.After succeed matching frequency ,we could upload Tx sketch Tx_2CH_robot_V3 _public.ino to Arduino Nano.
Remarks : For this instruction using data[0] and data[1] of Left Joystick only.

  1. Hi, excellent work.
    Question, why use two joysticks and so that the potentiometer?

  4. It's spare joystick.Or you can modify sketch to support tracked robot like tracked vehicle controlling.
