I was just browsing by Sparkfun and i saw this little fella for $249...

That may seem like a lot, but this platform is very nice and very fast. Puts that Rover 5 platform to shame. There goes my tax return i guess lol. I would love to put a propeller on one of those:)

They featured that chassis on last Friday's New Product Post (video), seen here (http://www.sparkfun.com/news/795).

Pololu also carries these (they've had them for quite a while).

Just for you, RK: a real 6-wheeler. Save your money for THIS! :)

@Erco... Wow, nice! Most of those would probably be out of my price range for a long time, haha. All i can say is that some people have to much time on their hands:)
