You may need two (x2) micro:bits ... one for the transmitter and the other for the receiver.
Setting up "Receiver" micro:bit
Once you connect your computer and the micro:bit to be used as the receiver, drag and drop Receiver.hex file to the micro:bit.
Setting up "Transmitter" micro:bit
Once you connect your computer and the micro:bit to be used as the transmitter, drag and drop Transmitter.hex file to the micro:bit.
If you have 4Tronix Bit:Commander to be used with the transmitter micro:bit, you can transfer BitCommander.hex file to the transmitter micro:bit and plug it in to the BitCommander.
Powering up Valenta Off-Roader and the "receiver" micro:bit
You may need four (x4) AA batteries in the car. The motor driver obtains the power that comes from these batteries and sends the power to the receiver micro:bit and the two rear motors.
Powering up the "transmitter" micro:bit
If you use the transmitter micro:bit alone, you may need the battery source separately. You can get one of these battery cases! If you want to use Bit:Commander, it will provide the power to the transmitter micro:bit.
