So for a future project that I am working on, I'm planning to use a RC transmitter and servomotors to make moving parts on a prop. Unfortunately, I don't have too much experience with RC transmitters and receivers. What I gathered from basic tutorials is that each channel controls one part. For example, a project with three servo motors require 3 channels; each channel controlling one servo.
However, the project I'm working on uses the three servo motors simultaneously. They all do different things, but using a transmitter and the microcontroller, I was hoping to control all three motors at the same time. They each have different functions. Two of the motors rotate to a certain angle and then stop. One of the motors will continuous spin as long as the signal persists.
Therefore, is it possible to use one channel for the servo motors since all three of the motors' functions are activated by one signal? Or do I still need to use three channels and activate each motor separately?
The best case scenario is that I just have to use one servo to control all three functions, but at the time of writing, it doesn't seem plausible.
Any kind of insight/advice/links/tutorials will help!!!
