Another rc car revived by Arduino

For Christmas I recieved my first Arduino. I don't have an electronics background at all, but I always though they looked fun. I never picked one up cause I had no idea what to do with it. Well after getting one and making a light blink I still had no idea. Then one day my son's rc car broke and I thought it would be cool to drive it with the arduino. This is what I came up with.



You record button presses for fwd, left, right. .25 seconds per press. flip the switch and it drives. I'm hooked, so now I'm trying to learn as much as I can to get ready for a local autonomous vehichle comp in June.
