    Example pulseIn() code to read
    RC RX
    pin (tested-working) /* This is example code for an RC switch */ unsigned long ch1; /* run setup code once*/ void setup() { pinMode(4, INPUT); // Set our input pins as such pinMode(3, OUTPUT); Serial.begin(115200); } /* loop code*/ void loop() { ch1 = pulseIn(4, HIGH, 22500); // Read the pulse width of the channel - timeout after X milliseconds if no change to pin if (ch1 > 0) { if (ch1 > 1700) { //assigned to a 2 position switch digitalWrite (3, HIGH); // turn on if (ch1 < 1300) { digitalWrite (3, LOW); // turn off } } Serial.println(ch1); // print value read to serial monitor } } Note: Pin 13 on many Arduino boards is connected to the onboard LED - This is great as a fast way to test code. Be aware that as the Arduino boots it normally flashes the led on pin 13 - so if you connect your switch circuit to pin 13 it will also switch on/off on board startup

    Hi Elsrickle, It's easy to connect an Arduino to an
    RC RX
    and read the PWM output(s) from the receiver channels and then apply some 'logic' to this/these readings/states and then act on that logic to do something e.g. switch something on/off Working backwards - what types of lights do you want to switch? And I would say YES - it's possible for someone new to Arduino to achieve what you want with some guidance - we all started somewhere! With most things to do with Arduino you don't start with a completely blank sheet - you often use someone elses code and modify/add to it - you will find that there is not much you can think of that hasn't been done by someone else before using the internet. Do be aware that some of the Arduino forums can be scary places even for seasoned Arduinoers... _._
