Arduino Based CL Timer for Speed
Hi Everyone !
I want to show you my DIY - Timer made of an Arduino Nano Board.
Still in development, but it already works a bit.
It is designed for Speed Applications, but with other software it would be possible to use it for everything else.
Flight time in the Video is shortened for testing.
The LED means :
Red - Akku connected
Yellow - initialising of the controller (blink) and accelerating or braking (steady)
Green - Full Throttle (steady) end of flight (blink)
Weight is 17g.
It is planned that the accelaration stops at a adjustable throttle to grab the speed pole and place the fork for a time.after that it will go to full throttle, like a reso would do after whipping. It is already programmed but yet not tested.
You can adjust :
amount of accelaration ( that you have a softer start)
Plateau speed ( plateau means the "reso" imitation)
It`s missing the start switch, have to buy one first. It is possible to connect it to the bellcrank as a shutoff.
Here is the link to the video :
Oh, battery was weak, so it didn`t reach top RPM`s.
Best regards and ever tight lines ,

Hi Everyone !
Here is the code.
Have much fun building !
It would be wise to add a additional switch to prevent the motor from accidental running.
The code is the Version with the "plateau" . It is now tested and runs fine.
Change the file extension from .txt to .ino, then it will work

New Hardware update !
No potis anymore and just one RGB LED. But now i have extra a button to start the engine besides the Main switch. Main Switch also acts as a energy shutoff, when linked to the bellcrank.
Pen is for size comparison .. .. ?..
Now much better for installation.
Have to do the Software now.
Best Regards, Sebastian

I'm very interested in your arduino based timer, i want to develop my own timer for F2B.
I'm a a newbie in arduino projects, but i want to build my own timer and i will buy a arduino nano board.
I think your code is the same that i need to F2B timer.. i need to control the speed, the time and one switch to start. I think in other functions like a delay between the start button and start engine, in order to have time to run to the handle. Other function may be a signal before engine stop.
Thanks for your code, i will try to start.
