Mode2: GamePad Remote Control

Introduction to GamePad

GamePad is a micro: bit-controlled product designed with a joystick. The joystick uses a high-precision three-axis analog. You can use the joystick through coding and control the direction and speed of Maqueen. And there are up to 7 programmable buttons (A, B, C, D, E, F, Z), you can use these buttons to achieve some interesting function control, or directly use the simplest switch control. Let's learn the GamePad remote control by Pin description diagram below.
