I would like to start by saying thank you to not only the Admin for all the hard work and effort put into this site, but also to all the contributors. A week ago tomorrow I had an epifany. I had just crashed my new RC Plane after losing elevator control and decided to amuse myself by seeing if there was any tutorials on building robots. I found a couple of different sites, but I started reading this one because I didn't see how it was possible to make a robot for under $50. While tearing through all the material, I found out that the programming I do for a living, couple with the fact that I like to build things, like planes and helicopters, and my minimal experience in electronics all led to what I have wanted to do since I was a little boy. I would again like to thank everyone for making it so easy to start learning and playing.
In fact, all of the electronics needed for the $50 robot came in today. My wife said it was like watching a kid at Christmas. I don't have anyway to make videos, but I will be documenting my progress using pictures. In fact, I have already started to use SketchUp to design my next couple of robot ideas.
