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).
*Note: This is not an original Arduino brand product, it is manufactured with the same components and functionality by a different manufacturer.

I know hardly anything about micro controllers. I was wondering if I could use this to program three servos to move to a certain position with a push of a button. I'm making an iron man costume and I want the helmet to open when I press a button then close when I press it again.
moi aussi, j'attends et si ils ont compris chez hobbyking que ç*a part comme des petits pains c'est qu'ils n'ont pas encore commandé* ou qu'il ont viré* le service !!!
si c'est le cas ils faut le dire!!
This you very sick soul.
Do not you realize that there is no product 100 days.
The money I paid.
Site Admin sick soul.
Item 100 days and there is no any response.
Can contact the client.
Offer a refund or another product.
You can tell by the square chip near USB plug, that chip was replaced in arduino UNO R3. In previous arduino UNO it was bigger and more rectangular.
Here is the link to a arduino uno history video:
All analog pins can also be used as a digital pin. But this must be done programly. You must set a threshold for LOW and for HIGH.
if(analogRead(4) < 100)
else if(analogRead(4) > 923)
HIGH is 5V (1023), LOW is 0V (0)
You need to take in account the error about 10%
That gives LOW - 10% * 1023 = 100 and HIGH 90% * 1023 = 923
The Arduino UNO R3 is the newest version of Arduino UNO. It uses the ATMega16U2 instead of the 8U2 found on previous generations. This allows for faster transfer rates and more memory. Besides that, there are two extra pins next to the AREF (SDA and SCL). These pins allow the shields adapt to the voltage provided from the board.
I did some research , when you plug in the USB do you here any sound from speaker ? "device plugged in" ? but not recognized?
im not sure what is the USB controller from HK arduino but in general do research about "Updating the Atmega8U2 on an Uno or Mega2560 using DFU" this is the official USB controller which might assist you in your case
No sound from speaker, no device plugged sound. I tried the updating using DFU, but it doen´*t enter DFU mode either. I had to buy an original Arduino since it will be used for my Final Proyect for my degree
First: It didnt came with cable :(
Second: When i plug it to my computers, it doesnt get recogniced. Aparently it came with the blink sketch uploaded, and that all it does... cant get it conected neither to a PC nor to a Mac, any clue?
Your probably missing the driver. You also have to be sure the right board is selected under settings or whatever. Also, select com3 USB. Mine messes up when on other com ports. Good luck! I love mine!!!
Download arduino.cc1.01 from arduino.cc - that is the software you need to program any ATMega devices, or go for the Big Kahoona - ATMel Studio which is essentially the full blown Visual Studio version...Once you install that plug in the atmega, it should discover and install the drivers and give you a COM port that you can program with. as far as cable goes...OMG I have millions of USB cables, I could probably stretch them end to end to you just to pass you a spare...haha
Go to the ****Arduino.cc website, and follow the instructions. The UNO doesn't seem to get automatically recognised properly on Windows Vista/7 so you need a bit of manual intervention. Full details on the website.
I hold it in my hands and it came with a USB cable. However, I would not exclude that some people just did not get a cable. You can probably not rely on it. Nevertheless, it is a standard USB cable. You will find one for a dollar almost everywhere.
Mine did not come with a cable. However it's not my first Arduino, so I already had a cable.
The one you want is the slightly uncommon USB type B cable. Not hard to find, it's just not the most common.
This an Arduino board. It can be used for quads but requires adding sensors. It would be easier/faster to get a multirotor controller board instead. In the electronics sub-section for multirotors, there are several FC boards to chose from. The latest board HK KK2 boards at $29* would be the best choice - need to backorder it though as of 06/26/12.
dhruv ... the power that goes to the FC (aka KK2 board) comes from the BEC/UBEC/SBEC and not from the battery directly. Does not matter if you use 2S, 3S or 4S as far as the FC board is concerned. What you need to worry about is if the Motor / ESC can handle 4S or not.
Please note that this is NOT a multirotor control board!!! This is just the base board with a programmable micro controller. The controller can be programmed in C. You can download the development tool from arduino.cc . In order to control a multirotor with this board you need to write your own control program from scratch or maybe find one on the internet (google for arducopter). Additionally to the software you obviously need all the sensors and additional hardware (as this is only a bare programmable micro controller board).
If you add Multiwii sensors and upload the MWC sketch this will function as a FC board. Read it up on the Multiwii threads. This board will make a better base FC board because all the pinouts are available not to mention the fact you can connect it directly to your PC via USB port - no need for an external ISP or serial programmer to upload sketches.
A MWC board with accel, baro and magnetometer for starters. GPS modules (for RTH after mod) HK already carries. Hmmm ... USB serial (FTDI like) port programmers, blue tooth slave/masters, wireless (Xbee type) shields, MK USB with ports 2 and 3 ... to name a few would go straight into the shopping cart.
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.
