Before one of you attacks me and tells me that
BEAM robots are not robots, I believe you.
They are merely timers and stuff like that, but they are a good way to learn electronics
i dont know if anyone here will help me, but i had a problem with a 2 motor walker.
I used the blueprints in the book: "Junkbots, bugbots, and bots on wheels"
When i built it and turned it on, it would turn left and right, but it would slowly "default to one side, like left, right, left, a little more to the right, little to the left, even more to the right, and before long, it did a 360.:confused:
I used solarbotics GM3 motors or something like those
if it didnt do that, it would convulse as as if having a seizure and tear itself to pieces.
dangerous, no?:eek:
if anyone out there knows or does beam, please help me.:o

Check the legs to make sure that they are even. You can probably tweak them to make it run straight.
