PICbook - Embedded Design PIC18F452

Embedded Design with the PIC18F452 Microcontroller written by John Peatman (Prentice Hall, 2003) in support of Microchip Technology’s PIC18F family of microcontrollers.

The QwikFlash devlopment board is used as an example in the book for interfacing the PIC18F452 to various external components. The board contains varous I/O devices such as an RS-232 port (for program code development with QwikBug), RPG, potentiometer,a pushbutton, an LCD, and a few LEDs. A temperature sensor is included on the board to demonstrate the use of the PIC18F452’s A/D module. A two-channel D/A converter illustrates the use of the PIC18F452’s SPI three-wire interface.

Fly Electric– Radio Controlled Model Aircraft

“On this site I showcase big electric planes, have loads of free plans for smaller ones, cover many interesting contruction topics and provide circuit diagrams and advice for lithium batteries.” – David Theunissen

PIC and AVR Projects – Designing PIC microcontroller-based devices to monitor lithium voltages. Individual cell low voltage cutoff, lithium tester and servo controller circuits. Simple data logging. Tutorials to help beginners to get started.

Brushless Free-Flight Timer

Brushless Free-Flight Timer – The page describes how to convert a cheap commercial speed controller into a light, easy to use, brushless free flight timer. It is also a good introduction to brushless ESC’s and you could even build your own.
