Picaxe user porting to arduino. Advice?
December 5, 2011
I started on Basic Stamp 2 and made BOE-Bot then ported to picaxe and made my robot Lexi. After a lot of months of rest from my robots all together I think I would like to try arduino next. I have been using 28x1 starter kit but now it seems like its giving a lot of trouble. I have some experience with servos, motor, sensors and essentially regular wheeled/tracked carpet robots.
So my question to arduino users, where should I start on arduino? Should I buy the arduino beginner pack - http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10174 or should I just buy the arduino uno r3 and just dive-in? For a newbie on arduino should I buy the arduino uno or the cheaper freeduino?
