RC plane Project Part 10 - Wii-Nunchuk Experiment

NonStream Wii_Nunchuk Experiment

With all the recent talk with regards to the Wii_Nunchuk ..... and somewhere in a post someone dared me to attach a Wii-Nunchuk to Depron, i thought that at least i should give it a whirl to see how it felt.

Findings :-

I know that its still in "Dry-Hanger" at the moment but from my feelings the Nunchuck would only be of any use for the Ailerons.

Trying to control everthing with one 2D hand controller i feel would be a bit much, you would need a panic button to hand back control to the normal joystick.

However it would be any easy job to interface this into my RC unit.............(switchable of course)

would the motion plus work with your depron project.

i remember one of your much earlier posts showing servos controlled by it so it could be possible.

any way kudos on the use of a nun chuck for the depron project

Yes for sure the Wii motionplus would work........

....but first i have to get it airbourne.....

... one idea with the wii motionplus is to use it as a stabaliser on the ailerons, ie just before a loop press a button that brings in the keep wings level routine (controlled by motionplus) ... giving a perfect wing level loop......

..more complex would be barrel roll ..

....all theoretical i know...

... i see the wii plus more on the plane and switchable rather than local on the tx unit.
