About this project

Connects to your receiver with servo cables, interprets inputs to emulate; headlights, taillights, brake lights, blinkers, reverse lights, and a light bar. All using ws2812 addressable led's, Assumes channel 3 acts as a toggle. Built for a BSR Basher Berserker 1/8 scale rc truggy. but could be used on any rc.

Turn right while toggleing ch3 at a standstill to turn on the headlights, or left to turn on the flashers. ch3 off to turn off either.

gets its power from the ESC via the receiver so if not 5v then youll need a 5volt BEC.

creates a soft interupt on an arduino pin, used to detect pinchanges

Schematics

rc_ws2812_LightController
servo y cables connect in parralell to your rc radio and your esc / servo via y connector. a 470 om resistor protects the digital pin of the led strip. the power is shared between the 5 volt arduino and the receiver via y connector to the esc.
