SAEX BOT by Bill Robison

This is my first attempt at a robot project. I dissected 
an old R/C dump truck and used the chassis for the base
platform. Also I used the motor that controlled the dump 
truck bed for a wireless camera control. The camera rotates 
360 degrees, but I want to eventually adapt another motor 
to it so I can control the camera UP and DOWN.

I think this project would be ideal for using in areas that 
are inaccessible or difficult to access. Such as checking
under a house or building.

I did have some problems getting the camera mounted to the 
motor. The camera has a threaded tripod adapter on the bottom,
so I found a bolt that screwed into it and put a plastic 
tubular adapter over it and allowed enough room on the other end
to put it over the gear shaft of the motor.

I want to eventually hook up an OOPIC controller I have to 
it. But I am a novice at the OOPIC, too.

If anyone has some tips for me please feel free to contact me:
