Getting started with the ACBR Wireless Controller Kit!

Updated: Apr 21, 2020

I am a huge fan of the RF Nano! The convenience of the good ol' Arduino Nano, built-in NRF24L01 Radio, and solid build quality. It's the easiest way to get two Arduinos talking, and that's why it's what we here at ACBR use as the heart of not only our ACBR Universal Wireless Controller, but also our Rover Robotics Kit, and Robotic Laser Cannon Kit.

This tutorial will take you step by step through the process of connecting our ACBR Wireless Controller to both our Rover Robotics Kit, and Robotic Laser Cannon Kit. We'll go over using the MPU60-50 Gyroscope / Accelerometer, and the Joysticks to control our robots. Keep in mind, this tutorial is also completely compatible with a standalone NRF24L01 and any sort of Arduino out there. In the following examples, we'll be using the RF Nano that ships with all of our Arduino based robotics kits.

Before getting started you may want to read our "Getting started with the RF Nano" tutorial, or watch our video on our youtube channel.
