The unit is together, with rudimentary joystick control... Works well on tiles/cement, however carpet and grass pose greater friction and thus throw tracks more in sharp turns...

The Robo-claw e.s.c. unfortunately cannot deliver enough peak power for the new motors (originally lo-power ford wiper motors were specced, but the wheelchair motors arrived at the last minute) .... so in extreme current draw situations (like reversing direction / turning sharply on carpet) the e.s.c hi-current shut-down kicks in, and requires a hard reset :( - this will be upgraded to a Robo-claw 2x25 as finance permits...

From here, it's time to acquire some sensors and begin to make the vehicle autonomous... Also some refinements to the track system and tensioners are necessary to stop throwing tracks....

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
