What started out as a by chance youtube video with my 3 grandsons of Dronebot workshop of building a " wireless joystick arduino robot car " turned into a 1 year and some project. After many setbacks any many questions asked on these forums and the lost of our 2 coders. ( 1 discovered GIRLS and the other fell to the evil on line video games ) That left me and my 10 year old grandson to finish the project. We decided not to come to these forums everyday and keep asking how we to this or do that but learn to code our self. But we did to come to hate the " Verify " button when doing sketches. Many--many mistakes. But we want to give a big shout out to  " ZeFerby " for pushing in the right direction. But we are pleased to announce we now have a fully functioning

I hope not, I'm no so good at coding. Need the sharp mines of the young ones.

@chickenhawk,

Wow, a quite impressive accomplishment.  Congrats to both of you.  And I hope you are taking great satisfaction in delving it to this project and working it to completion without spending time asking the forum for help every step of the way (now all of us can ask you questions).  You actually have learned much more doing it your way.  And I'm sure you realize how much knowledge our grandson has gained by working with you on this project.

Good luck to both of you in your next project.  Can hardly wait to hear more about it.

I think what you have accomplished is a miniature look at the project Bill may be revealing to us soon.

@chickenhawk

Congratulations to you and your grandson for bringing the project to a conclusion.

Perhaps you could document the project for others including perhaps some young people with an interest but no family support?

Congratulations,  discovering new things and abilities while working together.

You could post your code as it would be interesting to see how you approached this part of your project.
