Hello World!

Hello evrybody!

I am so happy to be a member of LMR, I will post all my robot projects soon.

But let's start at the beginning, shall we?

I started making robots almost two years ago, it was summer break and I was bored. The main reason I started is I like physics and programming and I thought robots are the best way of combining the two. And it's fun. I started making robots and I will NEVER stop. I want to learn more and more and that's what I do with every project I build.

I Found Some Awesome Joysticks

Just a quick heads-up.

I found quite possibly the most awesome collection of joysticks around. I have yet to get my hands on one, but man --they look good, nice mounting and multi-multi axis. Some of them are X-Y, some are X-Y and button and some are X-Y button AND twist!

Very cool.

They are here at ServoCity.
