Eggbot may not go further
March 9, 2014
Here's the first hardware run on the next project-just a big cheap egg platform. I was hoping to make this my first Propeller robot but I'm not sure if this is worthy of such an elegant processor. Think I'll get better traction and balance out of those little black ducks with more weight over the center? Such small wheels-I don't know if encoders are an option, and that one side is going about half the other. Right now the steel castor in the back weighs more than the rest of the platform combined. Gotta come up with a good battery solution too. What's the favorite for bots this size right now? (ebay links appreciated...)
What is the deal with the videos not showing up? I tried the embedded video field, I tried embedding the iframe in html... Is this another one of the server blops? Here's the link...
