New for 2020, it's Steve Koci's DIY RC Controller Addikit

Addicore partnered with Steve Koci of DIY Animatronics to create this kit. Steve is a writer for Servo Magazine and has had his animatronic articles published in the book The Ultimate Guide To DIY Animatronics. The DIY RC Controller Addikit is featured in an article written by Steve in a recent issue of Servo Magazine.

The DIY RC Controller Addikit is a general purpose RC controller and receiver based off of the ATmega328P and the nRF24L01+ 2.4GHz Wireless Transceiver. With 2 XY joysticks, 2 slide pots, 6 buttons, and 2 toggle switches, the DIY RC Controller gives you many different ways to control animatronic displays, puppets, robotics, vehicles, drones, and much more!

Out of the box the included Arduino sketches allow for the control of 6 servos and 6 digital outputs. There is extra IO on board the receiver that can be utilized if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and tweak the code.

Want to control more than one receiver? The DIY RC Controller Addikit has the ability to control up to 4 receivers in multi-mode.

The Addikit comes with 1 FEETECH (Fitec) FS90 9G Mini Servo and 1 Boffintronics RC Receiver board to get you started. Additional servos or receiver boards are available.

The DIY RC Controller Addikit is powered by 4 AA batteries (not included) or you can upgrade your controller with our 2x 18650 lithium battery holder.

Please Note: This is a self assembly electronics kit which requires soldering. For an additional charge of $20 (Selectable above), Addicore can assemble it for you!

This is a great little kit. Everything was in the box, and it went together easily.

I have some nice plans to use the control with two way transmission. I want to get data back from a model boat like motor current.

Package arrived in just a couple days, love that US Mail.

This is a follow up to a review I posted on the Product Review. This controller works great, I had some Tech Support questions on assembly and received a call within 10 minutes, "Outstanding Customer Service". Looking forward to doing more business with Addicore.

Great kit for DIY prop and toy builders.
Addicore has great customer service.
This kit comes with a pre-built receiver board and is easy to use..

Lightweight easy to build and has a good feel in your hand.  This will control 6 servos. plus 6 digital outputs. Great for talking skulls or what ever you can dream of to control remotely.
I am very happy with my kit and look forward to finding new uses for it.

Worked well, some issues with instructions being a little unclear. Right Joystick axis's flipped, X is Y and Y is X. Kit was missing two Jack Screws.

Reply From Addicore: Thanks for the feedback! We have revised the instructions to correct the errors, including the joystick axis call outs. We also apologize for the missing jack screws and have shipped replacements out to you.
