- Chassis / motor / servos (was thinking something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/4WD-Car-Chassis-PWM-Servo-Motor-Control-Built-In-Drive-Arduino-Project-/330658028448?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4cfcc11ba0)- Arduino motor control shield (something like this? http://www.adafruit.com/products/81 - do I even need one of these?)
Note servos draw considerable power, so if you need to drive more than one or two, you'll probably need to power them from a separate supply (i.e. not the +5V pin on your Arduino). Be sure to connect the grounds of the Arduino and external power supply together.
Am I right in my assumption that if I was going to modify an RC car for my purposes, I would probably need a motor control shield?
Wondering why you connected an arduino to an ethernet shield and then plugged it into a wireless router, vs. just using a wifi shield.Was it mostly a cost thing, or are there other advantages the router has?Also wondering if I can use an Arduino servo/motor shield instead of the ssc-32 you're using?
In my readings, I have learned that ESC's are controlled in a similar fashion to the way a Servo is controlled. If this is accurate information, does that mean I could just 'unplug' the wires that connect the ESC with the receiver and connect them with the Arduino?
