Hello, I am very new to anything robotics and need some help/advice on what to do with my Brookstone Rover 2.0. After searching the Internet for any upgrades to the software or firmware I came across an EZ-robot video where some guy explains that a Brookstone Rover can be controlled by using the arrow keys of my PC / a joystick / etc. using the ARC software. Since I find using an iPad as a steering wheel controller less than useful - the lag time before it does what I want is horrible - and using the virtual sliders are also really bad, I thought a joystick controller might be a better choice. So I downloaded the software, and unsuccessfully, searched the tutorials looking for a step by step set of instructions on how to connect it to the software for the specific purpose of using a joystick controller. Since I really am a total novice at this, any help would be appreciated on what to do and how to do it. So here are a couple of basic questions. Thanks!
1- Do I have to use a specific joystick controller, and if so, which one?
2- Can I use my iPad as a video monitor in tandem with the Joystick controller?
I would like to thank you (whoever you are) for taking the time to help - thanks!
