Peddler by Dan Ushman

Peddler is a small, compact and fast robot. It cost about
250USD to build and took about three mounths to complete.
I built it alone without any outside help.

Size:
Lenght- 9''
Width- 8''
Height- 4.5''
Wheight- about 10 pounds

Power:
Peddler draws his power from four rechargible alkaline
batteris, mounted in parrallel.

Control:
Peddler uses a Futaba Atack two channel AM radio for
control. Secondary motor control is atcheved with two
Duratrax Hobby speed controllers.

Speed:
Peddler is very fast, I have yet to measure exactly how.

Weapons:
Peddler has a set of (two or four, depending on my mood)
spikes that can be fitted thrue the holes in his bumber.

Chassis:
Peddlers chassis is made up of allumium pothole sheet.

Motors:
Peddler uses two custom designed motors\gearboxs with
custom mounting holes for its axles.

Wheels:
Peddlers wheels\axles were taken from a toy RC car. I
sent a sample axle to the company that was building my
custom motors\gearboxs so they could fabricate a perfect
fit...works great. The wheels are four inch diamiter,
fully pnumatic. One castor wheel is glued to the black
eletronics box's bottom for stablization. I will be
replacing it with two castors latter on for added stability.

Ground Clearence:
Peddler stands proud about two centimeters of the ground.

Problems encounterd:
-Peddler tends to flip to one side, this will be fixed
with the addition of a second castor wheel to the back.
-Peddlers radio has some, not much, RF interference.
-Peddlers motors overheat and take a few seconds to cool off.
-Peddlers batteries only last for about 45 minuts of use.
