    Hello all, first time here so forgive me if this question is in wrong place. I couldn't find what I'm looking for in the forums. My build is not for a cnc or camera project.

    What I want to do is control a slider (back and forth) using the "v-slot linear actuator bundle" with a wireless/IR remote. With the option of multiple motors in the future. This will be portable and will have to have a battery pack. I am a little green on the whole electronics and possible coding (if any). If anyone can lead me in the right direction that would be great. Possible kit available?

    Thanks in advance!:thumbsup:

    I can't offer a ready made solution but would suggest going with an Arduino setup. Do internet searches for "controlling Arduino with with IR remote" and "controlling a stepper motor with Arduino". You should have no difficulty finding the necessary wiring diagrams and programming code (sketches). Then combine the two processes. If you get stuck, ask questions. There are plenty of Arduino forums and its generally not hard to find someone willing to be helpful.
