RC Car to Arduino Robot – Cars have arrived!

No comments

The RC cars for the Arduino guided project to convert an RC car into a robot have arrived.

We tried to select cars with various features, sizes, prices, and body designs in an attempt to get a good sample of the insides of RC cars. In the end we selected the following six RC cars.

Team Losi 1/36th scale Micro-T RTR RC Stadium Truck - $86.58

New Bright RC Interceptor - $38.24

Nakamichi Racer 1/24th scale Off-Road RC Car - $29.99

Maisto RC 1/24th scale Lamborghini Reventon - $16.55

Hot Wheels RC Ken Block Gymkhana RC Rally Car - $41.25

Blue Hat 2-pack RC Micro Race Car set - $17.95

The Listed prices are from Amazon

Time to do some testing followed by some deconstruction, surgery, and hacking on these soon to be robots!
