Reading the A-Star manual did not give me enough information about how to hookup the A-Star. I’m sort of new to this, but understand the concepts, I just don’t understand all the acronyms. I am using three Maestro 24-Ch servo controllers all controlled by the A-Star programmable controller on my RC Boat. I’m transmitting control commands to the boat, and receiving status information from the boat for realtime display on the shore based control panel. The A-Star also needs to interface with some sort of RC Transceiver (still researching which one will do the job).
The attached block diagram shows how I think I need to hook up the devices. I don’t know what pins to use on the A-Star for the Transceiver (Rx/Tx). I think that the TXD1 and RXD1 need to interface with the Maestros.
The Transceiver I need will need a range of 1 to 1.5 mile (approx. 1.5 to 2.5 Km).
