are you talking about a mobile base or a stationary base here? a mobile base is going to probably be a little bit harder because i think the best way to control that would be wifi... you want this to be remote controlled but a problem of that is your going to need to see what your shooting at so thats going to be a camera on it to see or maybe a laser... The brains arent going to have to be 120$ but after you buy that part your going to have to invest in a fair amount of electronics... I would have to say for this if its your first dont do it and if I did it I would use a laptop based systems and use the laptop for my brains then use the wifi to another computer....
its going to require rather much programming and the mechanics are going to be a liitle rough to for this....  I think this could probably end up costing in the $300 range BUT you would have to do a lot of research before you started and make sure to not make mistakes...
my english teacher once said, "dont talk about what you dont know in public...."

so I replied the truth, " Exactly why I dont ever talk about English."
