Any extra hardware for Rover 5 and Dagu motor controller and Spider?
September 26, 2012
I'm just about to order a Rover 5 4WD, Dagu motor controller and Spider. I'd appreciate any advice on any additional bits or equipment which might be necessary/useful to complete this project.
Initial thoughts are:
What kind of electrical wire to connect the boards?
What hardware do you use to mount the boards on the chassis? etc
After it's acquired basic functionality, I'll need to add some sensors to avoid obstacles.
I already have a good soldering station, DMMs, plenty of experience building electronic devices (although a few decades ago), 30 years writing C/C++/C# code. Unfortunately, I lent my oscilloscope to a friend years ago and I've lost contact. I haven't seen my logic probe, wire wrap tool etc for years but I can have a good look if they'll still be useful these days.
