I just signed up with SoR after reading some of the tutorials, and I have a question or two to start out. I'm gonna try to keep it short and to the point:
Of course I want an autonomous robot, but I would love RC capability as well. Would it be possible to have both, and have a switch that controls whether the microcontroller or the receiver is connected to the servos? So I would simply flip the switch to go from remote control to autonomous.
I know I'm supposed to keep it simple, and I promise I'll try to in every other way, this is the only fancy-ness I want to get up to. Otherwise I plan on following the $50 Robot, Remote Control Robotics, etc tutorials. I am on a tight but not impossible budget, as I am a high schooler with some income but also college to consider.
I think that's all I'll ask for now so I know if my idea is even possible before I launch anything. Thanks for the help!
