RC Transmitter to Arduino To Robot With Calibration
I have just posted a new topic to the RC Arduino blog, this one deals with something rarely covered - calibrating your Arduino project to RC Signals. Its also finishes with the full code used in a simple RC Robot previously posted on the blog.
In addition to reading the RC Channels and providing a 'one touch' calibration the code allows a two channel RC Transmitter with throttle and steering channels to control a tracked robot with only two motors and no steering channel.

Latest post with explanation of calibration and control code, plus the full code !
The control is very intuitive - full forwards and reverse proportional control, proportional steering in both forwards and reverse and rotation on the spot at idle.
