Remote Controlled combat robot
November 16, 2010
Hello everyone and thanks for the help. I would like to know what kind of motors I would need for a rc vehicle to move around 5-10 pounds at max, If you could tell me how this torque thing and rpm applies to wieght and pulling ability I would extremely appreciate it. Also it needs to be able to handle tough terrains- mud, hills, debri, etc. - An outdoor fighter.
It will have a paintball or airsoft gun mounted on it and that i am thinking will be moved up and down by a servo and shot (the trigger pulled) by a servo also.
I am thinking the base will be made out of plywood or thin steel. I have included a video of the robot i am trying to somewhat "clone" or make it off that design.
Also if you could tell me if tracks are better or wheels. For the wheels/tracks and motors I would like it to be around $40 or less prefferably less haha!
Thanks for helping me and my tight budget!
