Hey I was thinking of making a bot with just the starter kit that can flip upside down by using the two big wheels and spanning in between them the two flat parts attatched to each other to make enough room for the batteries, reciver, and module. of course at the ends there would be the right angle gussets to mount the motors and maby a bumper to protect the modules.
If you guys have any ideas or suggestions let me know
i finished the “prototype” type thing about a week ago basically it’s just the two flat panels screwed together with the battery pack and “brain” on top and the RC receiver on the bottom. on the ends there are the right angle gussets with motors mounted on them and the big wheels attatched to the motors.
it’s pretty simple and i’m almost finished with another robot kinda like the flip bot shown in the gallery but it’s not using the two extra big wheels. it has a chassis similar to the square bot except with the motors further up and the big gears powering a medium gear that is attatched to big wheels and at the back the medium wheels are freely spinning but not connected. oh, and the battery pack is on the bottom
(i just noticed it drives better upside down):rolleyes:
This is my two-wheeler bot using the starter kit. There are straws protruding form it to discourage the centre from simply spinning causing the wheels to remain stationary. As it is right now this one is really fun to drive and spin about.
Also, I decided not to connect the motors directly to the wheels but rather use gears. This way I can play around with the gear ratio and see how fast I can make this baby go.
I actually like your idea better, by the way after i finished I took it apart so it’s kinda not there anymore but I do have pics of another 4 wheeled version kinda like the “flip” bot made by innovation first but with different specs and using medium wheels
