Sounds cool. Please post when you've got stuff working (any vids you could add would be huge too).
I *think* it will work. Only thing in my way is if the base can handle 3 amps... I will post everything late Dec. early Jan... No it didn't show up yet. It will work though but you are probably looking for performance. I am obviously going to run the power through the base for a while to see if it can hold up. Test with multimeter than plus computer in. (I make it sound so easy. "Hey guys I am just going to plug it in!" ) lol
I can send you a parts list if you want to get started.
Tips: Get an autofocus camera. I am getting a USB Pen so I can make a map of the house then one map out where I have been and to draw. :) I am most likely going to install GPS, and IR beacons.
Jeese this is going to be better than the 7,000 dollar robots! I don't know any robot that shoots *cough* foam *cough* missiles! (I am working on an Air-Soft mod. :) )
