    Hello! Have you got any idea on how I could reproduce this? http://www.pyrofersprojects.com/blog/ps2pad-tx/
    I'm beginning in electronics and I badly want to make this, I know a bit on how to program AVR microcontrollers (I've only used ATtiny ones), and I have got a PS2 controller. I'm also keen on RC planes and quadcopters / cars. I would like help with what type of emmiter I need to buy, the wiring and the code that's on the avr chip.

    I've been searching for hours, and I have found this : https://sites.google.com/site/mrdunk/Ho ... m-hardware and this http://denki.world3.net/pad_converters.html websites that could be useful. But it's quite complicated and I want to do something as simple as the first link. If we do it, it would be really helpful for the community since it's an awesome project. Who didn't dream of controlling a RC Car with a PS2 controller like in GTA:SA :) ?

    hi there
    welcome to the forums :)

    probably a bit ambitious for a beginner project ;)
    you would need to be able to reproduce the PCB for a start that that would be a huge job.. do you know some one that could reproduce that PCB design ?
    Have you actually built any significant electronics projects ?

    your second link doesnt work

    your third link shows a nice convertor project but he doesnt give the code for the uPC

    There is no PCB to reproduce, it's the original PS2 controller PCB. He just wired some wires from the joysitcks and the buttons to an ATMega, which is connected to the emmiter. Here is the second link: https://sites.google.com/site/mrdunk/
    The source is also given in the third link ;)

    I've already build a wireless firework igniter, but there is no microcontroller. But I have everything needed to program ones and I know C basics

    you said you wanted to reproduce what was in pic one...
    so do you want to clarify what you really want to reproduce ??

    I want to reproduce the mod he made to the controller, I don't want to recreate all the controller! Read what he wrote here : http://www.pyrofersprojects.com/blog/ps2pad-tx/, he says that he only added a microcontroller, some buttons and wire to a PS2 controller and a transmitter. There is no PCB to design in this project

    Imma use that : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Futaba-FUTL...Hz-Module-FHSS-R2006GS-Receiver-/380659646371
    And this https://github.com/wertarbyte/funkenschlag/ to generate the PPM signal.

    I basically need help on wiring the microcontroller and the code.

    Dave,

    I think he is trying to reproduce the dead-bug wiring in the lower left corner of the picture you linked to.

    Isn't that obvious? I've explained it, the big PCB is the original PS2 controller PCB! I just want to reproduce the mod he made on this controller!
