Hi,

what i want to do is, to have a such configuration in which if my remote control is off or disconnected during the operation, i want to put motor current to Zero. So, that it doesn't produce much current during the disconnection of remote. how can i do it with watchdog timer.

Thanks.

If the controller no longer sees the radio pulse anymore, then the input becomes 0, therefore the motor command will also become 0. The watchdog timer is looking for a valid serial command every 1 Second by default. Since the radio is not sending serial commands, it won't work in that manner.

You would have to write a microbasic script to do something like that.
