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.

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

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

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

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

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

Peddlers chassis is made up of allumium pothole sheet.

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

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 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.

there are lots of pictures peddlers page, on my site.
