I want to make a micro-controller powered remote for my 4WD skid steer GPS navigation autonomous robot. ( I will put all the info and pictures up when I finish the project)
I need a (hopefully ergonomic) enclosure to house the micro-controller, radio, lcd panel, controls and battery, as well as have two analog control sticks when I need to control the robots remotely.
My two options are:
Get an empty enclosure built just for what i need ( but i haven't been able to find any in any online robot or R/c stores.)
Rip apart a controller for a cheap R/c car and use the parts i need. However i haven't been able to find (even on Ebay) a cheap car that's skid steer. (like tractor treads, so on the controller it's two analog sticks the move up and down)
Any thoughts? has anyone tried this before?
