Let's Make Robots!

Eleanor

Mostly just rolls around, making kids giggle

Just wanted to say a big thank you to everybody who helped me out with forum questions when things weren't quite clicking. Literally. The relays just did not want to click (haha). Especially, but not limited to, Chris the Carpenter, jinx, Dan M, and birdmun. Your answers kept me from throwing ol' Eleanor off a cliff a couple of times. If anybody is interested in knowing more, don't hesitate to contact me with a post/comment/question below, or on the shout box. Cheers!

This looks very sturdy.

Could you post photos of the coupling and support of the wheels?

 

 

I too would like to see detail of wheel support & motor coupling.

A) I am with you on the wheel/axel connection. I was a bit concerned about it myself.

B) I want to change my nick to procrastination2 :D It would be so much more fitting for me than my current nick.

Nice build. :)

This h-bridge matrix may be something to look at down the road. The SINGLE CHIP N-CHANNEL FET BRIDGE is the only option that looks like it could handle your current motors based on voltage and current.

Ah, the husband/ wife robot videos... You know, it just so happens that I know a little something on the subject...

Beyond that, its nice to see you have relays clicking away. --And quiet too! I could hear very light footsteps but not a single bit of motor noise until you got right in there. Well done.

And remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
