The goal of this robot was to keep it as simple as possible but remain the most important movements. This robot uses 4 micro servo's salvaged from old and broken indoor rc-planes and helicopters. these servo's are controlled by an arduino nano and powered by two 1 cell 200mAh lipo battery's. To control the movement of the robot I use a Bluetooth transeiver connected with an android device. This allows me to make the robot go forwards, backwards, turn left and turn right.

Have a nice day!
I'm a maker. I design and create my own projects and build them from scratch. My favorite tools are my 3D-printer and laser cutter. I own a 3D printer since 2014 and still use it almost every day. I like to design 3D models and sometimes also animate it. Besides 3D printing and modeling I also like aviation a lot. I fly RC drones, helicopters and planes.
