I just started my first adventure in designing and building a robot.
In the first step I want to build a four wheel machine based on OOBOT40
controller and Futaba S148 Servos.
After that I will add sensors, etc.
I have million questions.
- OOBOT40 was selected as OOPIC software let program easy and quickly
is there better alternative?
- Also selected OOBOT40 instead of OOBOT40-II as former has 4 full H-bridges
(1Amp) and 3 High-Current (5Amp) Drivers.
I think to use more powerful motors in the future with same controller.
To tell the truth I do not really understand if that power would be
enough or not to say for using it with next robot that would carry several
sensors, wireless card, video camera and some other stuff.
- Selection of Futaba S148 Servos was done just because they are popular.
Same, I do not feel/know how powerful they are
Please comment on this simple design.
