Greetings fellow LMRians,
I am in the planning stage of building a quadcopter, which will be my first ever flying robot. So excited!!!! I have a question for you all: how would I interface some sort of PC control to the machine?
My friend is buying an awesome joystick system and I think that it would be really cool if I could use that to control the quad. I could maybe use an arduino with USB compatibility to control it directly but I think that it would be easier to use a PC as the joystick is pretty complex and it would be like rewriting the driver software for it. (I think)
Any suggestions of devices like a radio USB dongle or something like that. I really want to stick with radio and PWM because that it what I know and it is the interface that the flight controller of the quad will use.
Thanks for your help and feel free to correct me as I very much a beginner.
