a few questions about arduino and dynamixel

first about me:

- I have a bioloid comprehensive kit

- I managed to control it from my computer in C++ with visual studio express

I find visual studio express not practical, and I don't know much hardware, so I have a few questions:

- can the arduino software be used to control/ upload a program on the CM5 or CM510?

- what is the best board (arduino or not) to use with the arduino software and plug dynamixel on? without using adaptators and all.

- are the accelerometers for the arduino boards?

- can you upload a program on a board?

thanks!

Why don't you find Visual Studio and/or C++ practical?

Searching "AX12 arduino" you can find great pages like this from Pablo Gindel

By the way, what do you mean by "arduino software"? Processing?

I don't like visualC++ because even though I made a great C++ script, I still don't know how to setup a new project: I just modified one of the examples. visualC++ creates a ton of files, so I thought arduino would be easier to use. there are many tutorials to use dynamixels with an arduino board, all with a different solution, I'm just trying to find the best one.
