As a disclaimer, I’m new to alot of this, so I apologize in advance for any dumb questions.
I recently bought a 6 channel Vex transmitter / receiver, not knowing that the receiver communicates only with a Vex microprocessor. I have a few questions about methods of modifying the setup to work for my project:
I have a Handy Board, and I was wondering if the receiver might be able to communicate with it. The HB uses an RJ11 cable for computer interfacing, and the Vex receiver uses RJ10 to communicate with its microprocessor. but are there RJ10 -> RJ11 adapters that could be used, and if there are, any thoughts on whether the information will be passed in a format readable by the HB?
(a) Is there somewhere I can find a receiver that can be tuned to the frequency of the transmitter
and (b) Would it necessarily control the servos directly or could it be used to send input information to the Handy Board? Both options may be desirable, I just want to see what’s out there.
Any input would be great, thanks for taking the time to help me out if you can answer any of these questions.
