Ir Fighting System (LaserTag Rc, Free)

Here is the IRc Fighting System (IFS). A new way of f(l)ight!

I always wanted a Laser Tag for Rc models. Thanks to Arduino platform and cheap components we can get a real lasertag.
Itís easy. Just buy an arduino or digispark, some components, soldering and it's over. I'm using the digispark because it's tiny and easy to program.

There are 2 codes, the first is a simple target, the second is the hunter wich can be hunt to...

I tried with my FrSky radio system and it works fine!

Parts:
Arduino or digispark
IR Led
Some wires
Lens (if needed)

The PCB is designed to be used with a MMBF 170 (CMD BS170) and a CMD resistor (Value depend on your LED data).

Range:
I hunted the target at 30m with FPV plane and 100m ground to ground.

Enjoy and if you make changes, tell me to share.

I did this 4 years ago before I even knew about Arduino. it was my very first post on FPVLAB. I tend to the like 38kHz IR receivers. I imagine with an Arduino this would be far easier than my original design.

hmmm.... I can't open the IFS file. Crumb... How are you reading the servo pulse with the Arduino to tell it to fire the shot?
