Does anyone have any arduino experience here? I got one for christmas and have learnt how to do a few bits, but was just wondering if anyone knew how to create specific click sequences with just one buttontp control LEDs? so if I click the button once it will flash if I click it twice fast it will fade and so on.

Sorry I have no experience with screens like this for FPV but its something I'm looking into also...my question would be how long would a 3s 2200mah lipo run a screen like that for.....looks a little power hungry to me.

I'm playing arduino games too but starting from a low knowledge level (chips were fairly new when I was at school lols)

maybe the for..until etc loops might be of use? As in the rest of modern life, google is your friend here.


by the way my arduino bits arrived for the Dennis Frie open source head tracker and I put it together. Much to my surprise it all works. now to do a neat installation in the 9x.

I've tried google quite a few times and still can't get anything. Angelos, What did you use to control the Led's on your night wing/spacecraft? :P

set the button to increase an integer by one each time it is pressed.
then run loops while n=1 do a,else do b etc

OR SET THE BUTTON TO OPERATE AN INTERRUPT WHICH STARTS A TIMER TO SEE HOW LONG YOU WHOOPS CAPS LOCK press it for then use the value to set an integer, then run the program again with the while n=2 etc loops

Alfred. Go to PICProjects.com. They sell little pic chip board to do LED projects on there but they list the code (and a really good free website to test your colour codes out on) on the web site. It's not arduino code but it may be a good place to start.

I believe his single button press sequences are
4 second hold: wake up and sleep switch
Single press: pause current colour sweep
Double tap: change to next sequence

You can load as many sequences as you like and just rotate through them. Very similar to angelos' setup.
