PPM with ADC

Hello

Any chance you can add PPM with ADC input in the future?

Or if a custom firmware can be made

i built a custom power wheels for my son an i want to have ADC input set and override it with PPM for safety purposes

if that is not possible, how can i save both configurations of ppm and adc and just jump between them by bluetooth or a pfisical button 

now every time i want to change from ppm to adc or the other way around i have to do the input setup wizard evry time

Thank you

Hi,

did you try to use the ble app to override the adc value from your son ? i think the ble (uart) has more priority

Regards

Georg

yes i tried but it dosent have enough range

and on ppm i can control the front disc brakes and the stearing

it woud be nice atleast if i can store the setup for ppm and adc and jump from them on bluetooth like the speed limit profiles

Currently you can only use one App at a time. Either ADC or PPM or UART.

Hey @vufmihai,

I am doing the same thing! I want PPM to override ADC value.

(Controll my son's car via a remote I have from my FPV drone controller)

How did you end up solving this?

hello

i manage to solve this by using my receiver to control 2 servo motors

one servo has to steel wires connected to brake pedal and throttle pedal

when i press to accelerate it realeses the brake pedal and accelerates

and the other servo controles the reverse switch

in this way my son can drive the go cart and i can supervise with access to the brake if neded

i also have a steering servo 

 

this is my sons go kart

still work in progress
