    http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store...alizer-WL.aspx

    and once i finish readin up on it i should grasp it enough to use it with no problem

    right now i have it hooked up to a four channel rc reciever and the Sabertooth 2x10 rc motor controller its really simple but it was my first real project ill post pics when i take them but thanks to anyone that can help explain if this would be possible

    Hi Dutch, welcome to the forum!

    What's your question?

    Do you do any programming? You'd need to in order for the Serializer to be too helpful.

    Sounds like the SRV-1 is perfect for you.

    By PC based Rover do you mean a rover run remotely by a PC or a rover that has an on-board PC for it's main processor?

    Each approach is doable but very different in implementation.

    You didn't tell us what motor controller you're using? What motors, anything else. How about a little more info?
