Hey guys totally new to arduino but not to RC or 3d printing blah blah
My project is a life size bb8. and although there are a few different ways of driving him out there they are all expensive so i am making my own simpler drive system.
It is in simple terms a 2 wheel drive robot inside a ball (i have stabilizing wheels at the front and back but they are not driven wheels)
Ill list my equipment first.....
RC transmitter FlySky 6x 10 ch
FlySky 10 ch receiver.
L298n motor driver (controlling dual motors)
2 servos for the head movement
I have 2 ways id like to build this picking the easiest way for the final project.
- have basically a radio controlled balance bot inside a ball.
However i cant find any balance bot sketch's that are also Radio Controlled using an rc receiver and the l298n & mpu6050.
I have found alot of rc cars Sketches and i have tried them just to test every thing but i need stabilization.
- I could use the sketch i already have to drive the robot by radio control. the issue is when you stop he wobbles. so this option would be to stabilize just the head of the robot to give the illusion that he is balanced while the ball wobbles.
The head is controlled by 2 servos to go forward and back left and right. basically a 2 servo gimbal attached to the drive inside the ball. I have also found a sketch (not radio controlled) that does this and it works good. so if i could add 2 servo stabilazation to the current sketch which is rc contolled he would look good
So could someone... A. help me build a RC controlled 2 wheel balance bot or b Add basically a 2 servo gimbal inside the ball to balance the head. using two servos and RC control.
I would prefer #2
I hope this was enough info I know how forums work and i tried to be clear PLEASE HELP.
