Tank chassie, pull apart


Just brought this tank, so just wanna hear if any1 have tried to pull it apart. As to begin with i only need the bottom of it, the tracks and the engiers.

It is a RC tank, and is about 80cm long. And the cannon can fire BB bullets.


 'Hope that there is some one out there, that can help me. Thanks.



Quick Feedback on a Theory?

So, for fun, I found this website where you could "create" your own AI, Pandorabots.com: which worked with AIML. On this website, they give you a list of keywords your AI reacts to in the AIML file that they provide for you. (Since you have the option to use Alice or the Elvis bot as a base, the list is pretty large.)

PSP Screen Pinouts.

Edit: Learned what I needed to from previous question, didn't wanna create a new forum for every Question I had (we'd be at node 20,000 in no time).


Give a soldier a hand?

I have a problem and I hope someone here has a solution. Here's a little background on me to set the scene. I am a U.S. Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician (the guys in the big green bomb suits that take IED's apart). I am not the most electronically sound guy in the world and robots? HA HA HA!!! I can drive the tracks off our Talon, but I don't even try to get into how it works. Just a big expensive remote control bomb-killing car for me. Here is my issue. It may sound trivial to some of you, but to me it's mind boggling.


hello all, this is my first post on this website so i hope i don't sound to much like a noob.

Where to start with robots?

Hi there

I want to learn about robots, what they are made of, all the parts names, how to build/program robots and where to start with robotics? (mainly just the stuff to get me started)

Are there any websites that have this information on them?


Mac OS X and PICAXE USB Cable

I have tried to get the USB cable that came with the PICAXE 28X1 to work on my MBP (OS X), without any luck.  I have tried finding advice online, reviewed the manual to no avail...

I loaded the AXE027 driver (as suggested in the manual) and then I went to System Preferences > Network and attempted to connect but I get the following error:

Could not negotiate connection with PPP server.  Please verify your settings and try again.
