Need list of parts I should purchase to have on hand
August 23, 2012
Okay I have donated a lot of money to radio Shack getting piecemeal parts. I am looking for someone to post a list of great parts to have on hand.
Types of Capacitors, Diodes, Voltage regulators, chips ...etc.
Female cables/Male cables/Combo female-male.
Best controller card. Using a few Arduino right now.
I am willing to wait for shipping time. Best place to get all at once or piecemeal between places that have the best priced parts and shipping.
I plan on working with small robot parts at first. Nothing over the standard 6v. Looking for 12v in the future. I would like to have a bunch of parts on hand when needed. I figure a good kit upfront will save me money up in the long run.
An example. I wanted an IR receiver. Cost me $4.15 at Radio Shack. Saw them online for 5 for $2.00. That is just one item.
