for unspecified reason some time ago I decided to build a kind of sentry rover.
The requirements were:
platform big enough to hold all the electronics and pan/tilt system
pan/tilt system to hold and able to move at least 6lbs weight
fpv gear for out of sight control
all terrain capability
rover capable of very slow movement
get it all made with limited funds (~1500$)
Possible additional features:
weather proof gear
alternative control method
waypoint navigation with obstacle avoidance
After a lot of searching I decided for RC4WD’s Killer Krawler 1/5 scale version, as a rover platform.
