I've done this same sort of thing to my Infinus. I used an Arduino Micro driving some EM relays and reading pulled-up inputs from all of the switches. I will be switching from the 9 Volt battery for the Arduino and the stock 4D Alkaline tray for the motors to a 3s Lipo, a voltage regulator for the Arduino, pusher, and loading mechanism, and a MOSFET for the flywheels. I will also be upgrading to OOD Krakens for the flywheel motors.

 

Here's the code I am using: https://create.ardui...a343c42/preview

 

Your project was the primary inspiration for my attempt! Thank you! This project is amazing!

Limmers, I approved and split your post into it's own topic. That other topic was from three years ago, and while I'm not sure you're adding anything to that topic, I appreciate that you've shared code you've written. If you can elaborate more on your build (picts etc.) we'd appreciate it.

 

Welcome to Nerfhaven

Thank you Limmers. It was really a fun project when I had worked on it. I'm glad it served as some inspiration for your project!

 

I will be following your project to see how it goes for you.

 

Have Fun!

When I open the blaster next, I'll take some pictures.

 

If anyone has any suggestions about the code, I'd love them. I am still plodding along on it, but am having a little bit of trouble.

 

I'll make and post a wiring diagram as soon as I get a chance.

 

Thank you for your interest!

 

And I'm glad to join the community!

I opened it up today, and here are the pictures.

 

I know that it is messy, but I was in a hurry to get it done in time for my local war, and will re-do the wiring when I do a major upgrade. 

 

If there are any questions, fire away (love those puns!). Wiring diagram with component specs and identification will be soon... Not sure exactly how soon though...

FYI, that is a Stryfe cage. No, you're not going crazy. I busted the Infinus's motors on a 3s lipo (and by trying to cut off the circuit boards attached to them), so it's currently awaiting OOD Krakens. Then the Stryfe will get its cage back, and the Infinus will finally shoot more than 20ft in full-auto, and 30 in semi-auto!
