    Hi,
    Could somebody tell me is it possible to interface an RC reveiver to a PICAXE controller.

    What I am trying to do is,
    Take a pulse from a channel on the RC receiver,
    Send it to an input on the Picaxe,
    Have the varying 1ms to 2ms pulse trigger a program/code.

    Is this possible?
    For example when the TX stick is moved to transmit a 2ms pulse, the picaxe will pick up on the pulse changing from 1.5ms to 2ms then trigger a simple code to put an output on the Picaxe high.

    Any info on this would be greatly appreciated,
    Regards NM

    Alberto,
    How do I implement this,
    I am new to the PICAXE ic and programming in general, is there any site/link that would demonstrate this type of setup, detailing how to write the code for pulsed inputs?
    Regards NM
