Hi Abhi, your original bot was certainly zippy enough. I believe that your original bot was certainly capable of balancing really well. I don't just mean trying to balance..... but actually balancing extremely well. I believe it's just a matter of working on the software (control algorithm), plus PID settings, and making sure the sensors are giving decent/clean readings.Steppers tend to draw a lot of current when the motors aren't turning much, and will likely drain battery quickly. Will still be interesting to see the results from the stepper motors though.
Hi abhi. Your bot is balancing excellently. I knew you'd get there. Congrats in getting it nice and stable. Looks great.
