I recently bought a simple SMAKN 315MHz RF receiver and transmitter, and I got everything working so that the transmitter transmits the value of a joystick, and the receiver receives that and uses it to set the analogWrite() of a motor on a PWM pin.
However, the moment the motor turns on, the receiver just weakens tremendously. At that point it only gets a message when I stick the receiver right against the transmitter. I’m powering the arduino and motor with a 3.7v LiPo battery btw.
Any help? I’ve tried with a 9V alkaline and a 9V adapter and nothing significantly changed.
