everyone kinda dissapeared out of here... I'm thinking about trying a microcontroller, but im not sure how that would be set up? would it be the same as with the timers, but have to controller in place of the timers and diodes? really want to get some parts ordered, but still kinda lost on what to get. What micro controller is good to use? How many outputs would i need to do the lightbar like in the first video i posted? I downloaded the picaxe software, but am not quite sure what to do with it... if i buy one of the kits, does it come with instructions on how to begin programming?
