R. Giskard v1.0 by Matt F.

This is my first attemp at any sort of robotic project and 
it was a real learning experience. Until now, I've never even
owned an RC car or anything that used servos. I built R. Giskard 
from a kit with some modifications (I like the Futaba
servos better cuz they are easier to mod). I hope you all 
get a good chuckle out of my superior wiring job. I'll clean it
up as modifications continue. Heck, I'm a programmer and I 
wanted a mobile platform to play with. :)

It has two servo calibration boards (front and rear) with 
trimmers under the chassis that allowed me to set the stop
value of my choice. This meant I had to mount the battery 
holders on top of the chassis instead of the bottom. I haven't
wired the IRPD unit yet. After that, I'm going to install 
sonar and a camera (xCam2 Wireless Color).
