Also I don't really know where to buy all the parts in the UK other than the active-robots.com, any other places that you would recommend ?? Thanks in advance!!!
I dislike such indecision in a buddying constructor
What exactly do you mean ? What is "such" indecision ? I am only undecided because i have no previous experience with robotics, not much I can do about it.
I would love to go with Arduino (meaning buy all the parts separately) as I feel I would learn a lot more and enjoy it more, but then someone would need to help me choose the parts (or just a list of components that I would need to create such robot )and if not i would go with the RP6 as it is a complete kit but then I don't get to put the robot together. I am simply looking for some guidance and others opinion.
Yes but then I need a starting point.
yes I have read them, but they did not answer my questions.
anyways I have decided to first buy a couple of motors and a microcontroller for starters, learn how to control it try things and then gradually buy more things.
Now I just need to choose the motor that I shall buy, all websites talk about how to choose the motor - what torque it shoudl have to suit your needs, but non of them can tell me what a good price is for a given motor, so could you help me with that ?
This is the pretty much the only motor that I have found the suits my needs - is geared and had an encoderhttp://www.active-robots.com/motors-wheels/dc-motors/gear-motor-encoder.htmlbut it seems to be quite expensive- and quite overkill for a 2kg~ robot - should I go with it or do you know of other palces that sell similar dc motors cheaper. Thanks for your help so far
I gave you a number of links to UK vendors that sells surplus motors
(could use them with some gears ?)
