Let's Make Robots!

Marvin the Robot


Marvin the Robot is a RC controlled lawn mower. still in beta.

what is done right now is motors are mounted to a simply 2x4 frame. after I get a metal frame welded up I'll mount my lawn mower to it and add the wheelchair motors, batteries and controller box.

Just ordered some Durafix to "weld" up my frame. Now I got to pick up some square tubing. 
You got a good start so far. Can't wait to see the new frame. Keep progressing. This is my next project also. RC controlled and beacon navigation to finish each yard.
I look forward to seeing the welded frame. I wonder how it will go with the electrical noise from the sparkplug when you put your lawn mower motor on. You may need good shielding and noise suppresion.

do you think electrical noise we come into play? I have a spread spec. radio and receiver.

As for the frame, I think, I might have to wait on that. 2 reasons. #1 money. #2 don't have a job right now.
