making your own wild thumper controller


just curious, has anyone ever tried to make their own motor controller like the wild thumper? with the fuses and everything, using arduino uno? i wanna try my hand at making one from recycled stuff.

Designing a PCB with an ATmega328P-PU is not difficult. I've designed a couple of PCB's myself and had them made by Seeedstudio. Designing a H bridge powerful enough for the Wild Thumper is not that easy though. It's very difficult to find the matching N and P fets and keep the whole thing cool enough. Lots of other things to take in account.
