Hey everyone. This is my first thread. I'm building a custom Honda Ruckus scooter and want to add a one of a kind touch to it. My plan is to use 2 waterproof servos that can control, in essence, two "arms" constructed from aluminum which will have turn signal LEDs on each arm as well as 4 to 5 high output, low wattage LEDs which will act as headlights. The servos have to be controlled via an analog push button and must be powered by the 12V battery of the scooter. I'd really like someone to build this for me, but I know that's the easy way out, so I'd really like to know how to do it myself. I need help with how to program an arduino from step 1 since I'm totally ignorant on the subject, which arduino to buy, what resistors and other components are needed to control the voltage, how to program the lights to turn on once the arms are opened, etc. The assembly would be built from a modified phiz plate, similar to the one most notably built by composimo fabrication. The phiz plate is normally a custom CNC'd 6061 aluminum part which is stationary. I'd like mine to appear as a normal phiz plate until activated at which point it would "open" and unfurl into two separate arms or wings. Any help or someone willing to do this reasonably for hire would be amazing!! Thank you to anyone who responds.
