Hi im azu, im new here, and I've finally decided to jump into robotics. I took everything apart as a kid, figuring out how everything was made and i still think short circuit and wall-e are the two best movies of all time. Little did i know programming them was so easy. So i decided to jump right in and make one similar to the "start here" robot.
My question is: I was planning on using a picaxe 18x1, will that do fine for what i need it to? Im going to be using a Tamiya dual gearbox instead of his two motors and ill have a light dependent resistor and two leds added on to the "start here" design. Im using the starter kit with the project board, and i figure i should be able to connect everything directly to the project board without any resistors or capacitors. So do I have to use a picaxe 28 for this? or will the 18 do fine?
Thanks a ton, I love this website and I've been looking around it for a while. Happy Australia day to anyone in Australia!
