Hi.

Are there any news with this project, as been able to change patterns from a RC channel?

I would like to try some addressable LEDs with an Arduino.

Yes, you can. I have some code that does that. Do you know any programming?

Great!

I don't know too much programming but I can adapt code, change easy things, etc.

Ok, I will post the current version which includes four inputs controlled by RC channels. These provide brightness, led mode, and a few other functions.

Please give me a bit of time (maybe next week?)

Were you ever able to post this somewhere? I ordered three of the neopixel-like rings for my tri and would love to trigger changes via RC channels.

Thanks!

Any updates for control from a a TX?

I have generated patterns of my own, and I have a sketch that will read PWM in and turn on a single , non-adressable, LED based on switch position, but combining my PWM read sketch with the pattern sketchs has been a huge disaster so far. I am still plugging away, but would love to see what you came up with..

Try
AUX1 = pulsein(bla bla)

If (AUX1>#){
TOGGLE=1;
}
If (AUX1<#){
TOGGLE=2;
}

If (TOGGLE==1){
Run this color code program
}
If (TOGGLE==2){
Run this color code program
}

Just use a # between the on/off PWM of your transmitter toggle switch(aux or gear or other)

I got this Cylon pattern to vary in speed by reading pwm from the throttle channel.

I converted the pwm to a number that was appropriate for use as a delay value.
I forget right now how... but what I did was I inverted the pwm value so low throttle would become a high value for a longer delay and high throttle near zero for no delay to make the pattern go fast.
The delay was inserted in the Cylon sketch where it worked best... I had to experiment alot to get it to work as seen in this video attached to some dji F450 arms
