Total Rookie (First robot)
May 26, 2008
a quick introduction, i'm Marc. A 17 year old boy from a small town i Denmark, and i want to build a robot! :D
Background: i'm work at a metal/blacksmithing shop (easy access to all sorts of metal and any kind of tools :D ) and i don't know That much about electronics, only on a "need to know"-basis
i was searching the web some days ago, just to se if it was a "possibility" for me to build a robot. I fell across this site, and boy it's great!
i want to build a radio controlled, 4-wheeled, full aluminum bodied robot. I'm about to finnish the Sketchup drawings on most of the construction(still trying to figur out the software) i will upload them as soon as possible. But here comes the tricky part: i don't know what electronic gear, motors etc i need to have, so if any of you have any ideas on what i should use, please tell. i was thinking about using a controller and a receiver from a RC air plain (does any of you have any experience using anything like that?)
