  4. I need help with Arduino programraming, because I am C+ illiterate.
    My real hobby is Model Trains and my need is to get arduino to control multiple turnout/switches powered by r/c servos. I found one guy that wrote a sketch to drive one but failed to show how to get more than 2 to be programmed.
    I copied his program and simply copied it 5 time and then adjusting the pinouts and callouts. I ran a confirmation that came back with limited errors. The thing is I do not know how to make the corrections.
    I will gladly forward my results if someone would lkie to help.

  5. Alan,
