Remote control with RFM69HCW packet radio
You’ll learn how to easily TX and RX with Arduino. How to pack different data-types in a struct and transmit it over several hundred metres using RadioHead.
While the electronic circuit is usually very straightforward, the “magic” in physical computing projects happens always in the code. So, please see the GitHub link to the BOM, the schematic, and extensively commented code that you can easily adapt and recycle in your own projects. Often, there’s a useful code concept or code snippet that you can use for an entirely different design, because it’s a fundamental principle.
If you want to learn about good soldering, this seven minute vintage video is still the best of them all.
