Dave’s LawnBot Part 2

Here I’m machining some parts to allow me to attach the wheels to the drivetrains. Also, I’ve finished the electronics and have a brief test to make sure everything is working properly. Note: I may need to incorporate some sort of kill switch for the motors if the thing loses the RC signal. I noticed that if I power off the transmitter while the wheels are in gear, they will continue for a few seconds before returning to normal. This is a problem, as I will lose complete control if it get’s too far away.
