so as some of you know i have entered the 2nd SoR robot competition.

anyway i just wanted to tell you about my project and for some suggestions.

okay so my robot is called All-Terain Survallance Robot or ATSR for short. so it is rc, it uses a all-terrain rc truck for the base. then it has a welleded metel roof th cover the elctronis. to house the rc recever i will order a free sample weather proof case from packtech enclosers. i will cut a circle in the center of the metel case and put a clear plastic dome over it. this is where i will have the 2 servos and camera for pan and tilt.

i will be including a section on how to make your own portable base staition to carry around with you.

a upgrade i am thinking of including is mounting a snow plow on the front to shovel your driveway and maybe a trailor hitch.

that is all so post some feed back.

and remember vote for cooldog

trailer hitch? wouldn't it be easier to carry whatever you want than tow it :p

good luck.

have you thought about using a lexan RC car body instead of the metal roof?

Um cooldog,      HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DO ALL THIS AGAIN???

and also, how small are we talking about?
the link to a picture of what you were trying to imitate , had a really big robot.

(by the way , just a heads up, this will probably cost you over $500. )

But hey, if theres a will theres a way! don't give up!   ;)
