IR codes below are named by model, RC channel, and then F = forward, B = back, R = right, L = left, S = stop, and
combinations of those mean they occur at the same time.
In the case of the tarantula, the motion is by tank/cart, so a single motor will move the toy forward/back and
left/right at the same time. Two motors are needed to just turn or go straight.
The numbers in the IR codes are in microseconds, with (double-check this) each odd-ordered number indicating time
of the carrier frequency and each even-ordered number indicating time of no signal.
Also, the IRrecord.ino code contains a comment, "Tweak marks shorter, and spaces longer to cancel out IR receiver
distortion", which seems to indicate that rounding to the nearest 500 microseconds would give the true code.
The numbers in the codes were taken from the output of IRrecord.ino, taking the median value for each number across
3 instances of the signal.
