Which picaxe board?
December 2, 2010
I am currently using an arduino in my ongoing robot project but in a next project I would quite like to venture into the world of picaxe. Where would you all recommend to start, working on a 'cheap as possible' principle ? I found an arduino shaped board on ebay without the picaxe for just under £5 with shipping > http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/XINO-basic-for-PICAXE-and-PIC-Arduino-shaped_W0QQitemZ320619907780QQcmdZViewItem?rvr_id=178039127621&rvr_id=178039127621&cguid=5685944512c0a0a9f4b07b50ffe30339#ht_3633wt_1183
Does that look like a good place to start? I don't really want to begin with the start here robot though because that's way too expensive and I wont just be programming to control sensors and servos.
Basically which board/chip should I start with?
