Hello Aruinoers,
I set up a canoe this summer to run a pair of electric trolling motors with golf cart batteries.  It has servo steering and battle bot motor drivers controlled by an arduino that takes commands from a wii nunchuck.  Is this the first electric vehicle controlled by an arduino?  If there are others, please post!  I'd love to see them.  I'm pretty sure it's the first boat.

I made a short movie about it posted here on my blog.

thanks for watching,
Tim

LOL, yeah, If it gets dunked, the plan is to shut down and grab the spare nunchuck.  And when that one goes, I grab the old school controllers, paddles!
