In this episode Jason uses Actobotics, 3D printing, laser cutting, an Arduino Nano, RGB LEDs, carbon fiber, a new brushless motor and LiPo batteries to make a lightweight weed whacker.
Check out the instructable for this episode for the code, wiring diagram, parts list, laser cutter files, and 3d printer files he used to make this project happen.
This this episode Jason shows a setup where a gamepad shield on an Arduino Uno sends data via RC to another Arduino on a rover.
Build instructions, wiring diagrams, and the code you need to replicate this project can be found in the Instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-RC-Gamepad/
In this episode I talk about a couple different ways you could add a motor the the 9" V-Roller kit.
Below you will find the parts list for each of the 2 setups.
I did not include the electronics since the heart of this question is about mounting the motor.
We did not do a full Instructable for this episode since it was fairly simple but if you want one please leave a comment.
Parts List 1: In-Channel Planetary Gear Motor Setup
Parts List 2: Wheel to Hub Spacer Friction Drive Setup
- pick a spur gear motor https://www.servocity.com/html/3-12v_gear_motors.html
