Hey fellas, new to the site and enjoyed reading the past few days. As of 4 days ago, I suddenly decided to build somthing. At first it was to be some kind of contraption. Heres what heppend:
I decided that I wanted to start with a solar powered RC type thing. Keeping in mind for future upgrades to be a robot with unknown purpose.
-I am using mostly junk parts, and nothing will be in a kit form.
-I will be using a 130 type motor, or the next stage up. CD drive motor?
-It will be light weight as possible.
-Wheel base will be 9-10 inches, track width 5-6"
-As it stands right now, I will have a center pivot chassis using a servo from an RC-10 Associated
-I will make a solid rear axle with 1/8" rod, with a tube for housing, and a large spure gear
-I am using 2", and 2 1/4" foam plane tires.
Now my question, dont you think its a good idea to get it to be in RC form, then robotics once I get the feel of things?
