Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).

Hello all, I have been doing RC for some time and I'd like to get into Arduino projects and learn some basic programming. Anybody have a good complete newbie tutorial on how to get started with Arduino? Also, what else would I need?
Buy or download the book: 'Getting started with android - by Massimo Banzi' . Its a great book and it will help you a lot to begin with Arduino. Also see some tutorials which are available on YouTube. Search and see other people's projects and decide what you want to make. Then buy a starter kit accordingly, or assemble one yourself. If you need more help go to Arduino forums at arduino.cc
In basic every arduino program has two main sections, the void setup and the void loop. The void setup function occurs when the arduino first turns on or when the reset button is triggered. The void loop function comes after the setup it is were the bulk of your program will go. This function gets looped, hence the name, over and over until it is told to stop or it is powered off
One difference is that you do need to solder a 10k resistor to the back of the rev. 1 board to reprogram the bootloader. R3 comes with that resistor already on the board. I had to do this for a project where I wanted the arduino reprogrammed to work as a usb joystick (I made my own 3 channel VRC pro usb controller).
Apart from that they are identical, and a 10k resistor is not exactly expensive...
Sure thing. I uploaded it in the files section, it's currently "undergoing a review process" :-) I'm using UnoJoy and some PWM reader code that I found, original author credited in the file of course. If it doesn't show up here, let me know and I'll put it on the arduino site.
Verry Good HK the original ones are 29 eur in the netherlands here you get 3 for that price i cant give an exact previeuw yet i am still waiting for my stuff but when it arrives i wil post a decent previeuw

Very useful. Not the original arduino brand but works great for getting started in programing. Even is great for Professionals. Highly recommened for people that would want to make a UAV that uses GPS guide points and wirelessly fly aircraft from their computer. Overall I find it reltitivly easy to get started in programing. Great price but can get for 17 dollars and free shipping on e bay.

I've have both the Arduino Uno Rev 3 (which I bought from Radio Shack) and the Hobby King clone. The are basically identical with the only noticeable difference being that the LEDs on the HK one are brighter.
Highly recommended for people interested in physical computing - as there is an amazing library of functions out there to be used.
