I've been using many different Picaxe's for quite a while to develop different types of robots but ive never used or touched an Arduino.
i was thinking of buying one except i have no clue about the different types. is there a certain model that is simple to learn the basics with and are there any extra parts or tools i need to use Arduino.
I recently received a Bluesmirf Gold module from little bird electronics and am struggling to connect the Picaxe to Pc using bluetooth. when i open the bluetooth icon in the taskbar and press "add" it finds a device named "FireFly-16FF" i am asuming this is the bluesmirf module.. i stabilise a connection with the option "no-passkey" selected and everything seems fine. the module is wired up to the picaxe Serial in and serial out pins and i am using the serrxd command.
