June's feature

Robot ressurection.

Years ago, I built a radio-controlled, 12vdc-powered robot with one of my high-school science students.

Now my own child wants a robot. So, according to her specifications, I modified the dusty platform... and so begins this incarnation, Tiny!

Status: Work in process. Next step is to add a gel-cell and the control servos.

This chassis sat for about 8 years. It's nice to see it back! It used to be a longer, triangular frame; now it's a 22" x 20" rectangle.

It's driven by Motorcraft wiper motors with 4" wheels, and it has a caster as its third wheel.

It's grand to get this little platfrom rolling again!
