20370Re: Chassis for Magellan like robot.
- Oct 1, 2004I'm with you. I like the software but pretty hardware challenged.
I followed the pattern of the UPenn's GRASP project and used a
Tamiya TXT-1 monster truck as the chassis
I have a pretty detailed description of the parts I assembled and
the changes you have to make to the stock TXT-1 chassis on
http://cylonrobot.blotspot.com The GRASP site also has a changes
list that talk about how to "robot-ize" the TXT-1 chassis.
