Aye, thats what i figured. I will uy more expensive parts later if im doing like a super bot :P And i shall be using fritsl's code so hopefully everyhting goes together how it should ;)

The IR is ok, and it's perfect for the Start Here project. If you use fritsls code it will do what it's suposed to do.

Sure, a ultra sonic unit is a sweet upgrade, but not an essential one.

Damn.. well ill make sure progress pics are not fuzzy ;) I have basically everything in the tutorial bar the cable for the IR sensor, haha. So i have a 28 pin picaxe start board with USB connection, a L293D Motor Driver a PICAXE Servo Upgrade Pack a Sharp GP2D120 IR Sensor - 11.5" / Analogue and 2 Gear Motors with wheels As well as my own tools such as soldering iron, solder, cables etc. I have had a comment that the sharp IR sensor isnt the best but it will do for a first project :D
That's a huge fuzzy picture, but good that you've got a start with parts. What did you get?
