Introducing Steve Koci's DIY RC Controller Addikit with Receiver Recorder! This is an upgrade to our popular Addikit which now includes the Boffintronics RC Receiver Recorder

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.

The Addikit comes with 1 FEETECH (Fitec) FS90 9G Mini Servo and 1 Boffintronics RC Receiver Recorder board to get you started. Additional servos or standard 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 (Selectable above), Addicore can assemble it for you!

3 of 5 Steve Koci's DIY RC Controller Addikit with Receiv March 4, 2021
By: Del Hart from Valley Center, CA United States  
Review for a RC Controller Addikit with Receiver Recorder.  After assembling the kit, I realized that the (1) Boffintronics RC Receiver Recorder and the (1) FEETECH (Fitec) FS90 9G Mini Servo with Accessories did not arrive even though the shipping document included them.  The shipping box was in excellent condition, actually very well done.  Instead of making a scene I decided to just buy some more parts, a lot more parts.  After the new receivers arrived (4 of them), I assembled for test the servos (I had purchased 6 of them initially) and tested the system.  All six servos worked, looked impressive as I moved both Joy sticks and the two sliders.  Everything seemed wonderful until I moved the transmitter 3 feet from the receiver.  Well, I had "control", just not "Remote Control".  I ordered a nRF24L01+PA+LNA with Antenna 2.4GHz Wireless Transceivers.  I soldered in the new Transceiver, reassembled the RC Controller and flipped the power switch.  Success!
