Hi all definitely a newbie here,
have been trawling thru the forums, looking at everyone's projects..alot of good ones...
here's mine ....sort of has been thrust upon me...My eldest autistic son(10yrs) has had a robosapien V2 since xmas '06, But 6 months ago, he got abit excited & broke it,(he fell on it).Well he broke the robots legs... abit beyond the normal putting back together...so I thought i could go one step further and put tracks and a base similar to Johnny 5 on it instead.
But am little unsure of what to be aware of ...eg using existing connection as inputs into a "motor controller or "micro-controller" , power needed or buy a kit a "make it" work to best i can...Any help or direction would be appreciated heaps , am in "the deep end" here that's for sure...BTW I totally loved the Mod that 4mem8 has made it rocks big time:happy::happy::happy:

I think 4mem8 did exactly what you are planning. Search through his posts and through his gallery and you may find something useful.
