Dual channel after burner with ATiny85, Arduino sketch


I have created a simple small afterburner simulator for my F/A-18. It uses a single RC channel to trigger and it has 2 outputs that are different. You could use both in 1 setup for a nice effect also.

Arduino sketch is attached. It uses an ATtiny85 with 2 fet's (general purpose N-channel) driving the led's. A 3.3V of the shelf step-down adapter is used and is more then enough to drive the fet's with a 3A load.

The effect is maybe a bit to strong or slow but you can play with the values in the sketch

Example of the effect:
