    'J-Dawg One' BRAT-Mech

    Named after our infamous 'intern' Jennero! Muahahahaha (He's gonna kill me)

    This BRAT-Mech was ridiculously easy to build, even with a custom pan/tilt setup on it. Currently tweaking some of the code, but I had it built and walking around in about 4 hours or so. Gonna stick with a 2.4ghz PS2 controller and hope for the best, will be a good test of how well it fares in the Robogames environment (since this is an extra one anyway).

    Firing tests work just fine, wifi camera is a crappy airlink one I had extra, but might as well put it to use. Had it walking around for 10+ minutes using a 6v 2300mAh pack without issue, still a decent charge left in the batteries. Once I finish up the code and finish soldering the gun connections, it's 100% operational.

    Basically, it's a weekend project that gets you a combat-ready mech at a low price, not a bad option at all.

    Shweeet back-up mech! Did you catch the LM thread where I tweaked the BRATMech BBII code to add tilt?

    No, but it sounds like I should check that out, one less thing I need to code :P

    Thanks Manny!

    Sweet Mech Andrew. :-)
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.
