My first robot
June 22, 2008
Hey , first ill introduce myself . i am a 17 year old student at a local 6th form in nottinghamshire . I have a great interest in Computers and would love to learn more . i have spent my last year working in a computer repairs shop part time for some money but sadley this closed down due the retirment of the owner so i am currently out of money .
I enjoyed what i did and created my own top of the range pc and love helping friends family and anyone else with problems they may ask me .
I have been looking for a new hobby as i am out of the job and have spair time when i am not at the gym or at 6th form and saw this website ( amazing by the way ) which really made me want to get involved. I do not have a great knowledge of programing or scripts but i would love to learn and understand how they work .
I went on to the start here tab and am going to start to buy the parts and hopefully get then in one bulk .
But a few questions before i start ( sorry this post is so long , about given my life story XD )
1. What size wheels would you recommend for this robot ? would this little bundle be any good ? http://www.hobbyengineering.com/H1416.html
2. it says not to get the SRF05 first as it is harder to script , but to save me money for the future and the P&P on this item do you think it is possiable that a Newcomer such as my self would be able to get this up and running without no major problems ?
Well thanks for the help much appreciated and thankyou for letting me join the site :D
