I just got my arduino diecimila today and I am trying to figure out what to do as my first project.
What do you guys think I should do?
I am a little tight on money untill this summer so my projects are sort of limited :(
gratz, now you can start playing with C..
i advice you to start playing with the tutorials at www.arduino.cc , and then move away to the toy competition, since you have a old rc car to play with..
dont forget to give us some nice fotos =P its always fun to see the evolution.
Good luck with the arduino, and welcome to the electronics open-source microcontroler!!!
the coding part will probably be the hardest part (so any help/tips are welcome :)
What do you have laying around? Wheels, motors, speakers, leds, switches, sensors?
An old rc car (still works) leds switches speakers some motors soldering iron (with some experience :) ect mostly parts scavenged from dead electronic parts donors.
Here is your latter:
