About this app

****This application is designed to be used with a MODIFIED RC car. You have to replace the car's stock control circuit with a micro controller. This involves programming. The application will not work with a brand new, out of the box RC car. Please visit the website before you download the application.

The application allows you to control a micro controller and Bluetooth fitted RC car with your smart phone. Visit this site https://sites.google.com/site/bluetoothrccar/ for the code and control circuit. The app lets you control the car with either virtual buttons or the phone's accelerometer. A slider bar allows you to control your car's velocity if the car's control circuit has this feature. There are also two buttons for front and back lights. A flashing light lets you know when the phone is connected to the car, and arrows light up letting you know the car's driving direction.

Best BT control app I have seen. Few sudgestions i can give to improve this. 1. Horn button currently has ON/OFF toggle option and it would be nice to hav a push-ON and relese-OFF type like in Forward/Backward buttons 2. Currently this app send a "D" key when disconnecting BT as a superb feature. It will be nice to have a key send when connecting app to BT also.

Hi Andi, I'd like to thank you for your efforts done in that project and sharing your knowledge. I'm trying to modify RC car for my son. It's with one drive motor, and a servo motor for the steering. I'm using Arduino Uno and 293 driver. I modified a little bit your Fritzing sketch to adapt with my components. But unfortunately, there is something missing and I don't know what it is. I can't even switch the LEDs. I'm working on 9600 baud rate, I modified the sketch too. Is it essential to work on 115200?

Hello Khaled. The reason I increased the baud to 115200 was to prevent lockups (Arduino side) with Android 4.0+ and the 9600 baud. Does the phone connect to the module (solid LED on module)? Email me bluetoothrc@gmail.com

The app seems like it has potential but it only works with Bluetooth rc cars where can I get one? Never heard of one but the reason I said it has potential is because it does not hook up to non Bluetooth rc cars but hope in the future it can hook up to non Bluetootooth cars. Ps would like to have known if it was only Bluetooth in the name plz fix.
