A few more thoughts...

A project log for Remote Control Land Strider

I got it in my head to build a Land Strider, pretty much just because I think they're neat.

To that last Project log I should add that the turning was intentional. If that didn't work then many of the ideas I want to add to this thing just won't work. BUT. Yes, there is a but. But it's still a bit hard to control. Most of that is in the firmware and the way I have it balancing out the two channels. That's going to be a main focus of mine now. I'm also thinking about adding another gear stage. Right now I can't use more than about 25% throttle or she'll take off at about 40 miles an hour. The motors came off a fairly large helicopter, so are turning pretty fast. I could buy different motors, or gear these down even more. Care to guess which way I'll go? :D
