I am planning a robot, but I have several questions that I need answered. As you can see, I'm still a beginner. I appreciate any help you can give me.
1. It will use a Picaxe-28 Project Board with the same chips as the Start Here robot. If I use a Picaxe-28x2 and configure some of the digital inputs as outputs, will they function exactly the same as the other outputs? And could I control an LED and small speaker from them?
2.I plan on adding a Remote Control option. What infrared sensor do I connect to the IR area, and how do I use it to control the robot?
3. Is the maximum number of servos 8?
4. I plan on enclosing the microcontroller unit, will I need a heat sink and a fan, and how should I connect the fan?
