Looking to buy an R/C car to hack

Sat Oct 05, 2013 8:06 pm

Looking for suggestions. I want to control an R/C car with my pi, using bluetooth from my phone. I've got all the software stuff working, and the pi is ready to control something--but I need something to control. What I'd love is something like a tank, that uses two separate drive motors for the back wheels, instead of the traditional setup that has a drive motor and a steering motor.

Any thoughts?

Have a look for the Dagu Rover 5 tracked chassis, it can be bought in various states from "bare" with nothing to motors & encoders. I think both ProtoPic and CoolComponents have them in the UK.
