I'm from Australia and I'm trying to build my 1st robot.
I'm a technology teacher so the mechanical and electrical bits are ok, but electronics and programming are all new.
Dick Smith is an Australian electronics company and is the page below examples of what I am building? Is the IC used the same as the Programmer from Digikey?http://dseau.resultspage.com/search.php?sessionid=4665d550003b342c2740c0a87f9
I am trying to start a class of robot builders at my school (Years 7 to 9 or 10)
Money is an issue for the faculty and the students. I've already spent $50 on the 2 servos. We have used Lego but wanted to build a real robot.
