Holy cats, Brian!

The prior post has a GrowBot in front of the super-bot. That's a Parallax relic from 1997, only to be found in the deepest corners of our building. I'm also currently building a larger robot (three-wheeled) for Prop control, using a gas + alternator hybrid configuration. What's the plan for sensors and control?

WORKS AWSOME !!
·Please forgive the controllers hanging out in the middle of no where. Now that I know it work's, it's time to mount all components. the code in the first post does not have to be alterd, it works perfect.

Lostcauz,
Heres a photo of my motor, wheel and battery I used on my super_bot , I used a lawnmower wheel with shaft collar slid over it and a hole drilled for the set screw. The 12 volt battery is from electric trailer brakes (it's the break-away battery).

OK thanks Brian. I have several assorted lawnmower wheels I can choose from. I'll need to find some shaft collars.
