Here's video from Saturday's maiden voyage of Data Bus! Test run on the 13th, video on the Ides of March. Fitting.

  1. Michael,

    That is a very fast robot. Now I understand why you need all those sensors apart from the GPS. 40 days left, you can do it.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! Fun fact: the robot is actually going just about as slow as I could get it to go... the stock ESC engages as "fast" and goes up to "really fast" :)

    I just put a new Traxxas XL-5 ESC on it. The XL-5 engages at "really slow" :) Also it has a proportional brake, something that will be quite useful once the robot can actually detect obstacles by some means other than crashing into them. :)
