Tiny receiver - code 2
Help me by sharing this post

This is the code for the second test of this Tiny receiver PCB with servos. In the video the PCB doesn't have the servo pads but I've made a simple test with some wires connected to the pins. But now, I've cahnged the PCB to have the servo pads for signal, GND and Vcc. So, get the final GERBER file of the PCB from here, order to JLCPCB and get the board. Then, download this second code and upload it to the board using the FTDI programmer and see how to control servos. Remember to haev the same radio controller as in the past tutorial based on Arduino and the NRF24 radio mdoule and use the same pipe code: pipeIn = 0xE8E8F0F0E1LL. Remember to downlaod and install the NRF24 library to your IDE.
