RF Receiver Output

How are the signals encoded from the RX module? Is it a pattern of 0-2 ms pulses in 16-20 ms period. Can I write a computer program to control a vex through my computer’s serial port.

The pulse width from the RF Receiver is 0.870 – 2.15ms and has a period of 18ms. This signal will be decoded by the Vex Micro Controller to a value from 0 – 255. The control signals are TTL levels where as your computers serial port is at 232 levels. You can damage the Vex Micro Controller if you do not do a level conversion.
