I'm new to Arduino and growing insane with all projects i want to create but i decided that making my kid a remote controlled "ride along" car is gonna be the first one! ( that i will keep adding fun stuff to ).
Im making this tread because as stated i am a total noob to this and will need help ( for those kind souls who got a few minutes and wisdom to share )
The idea is to use a chassi like this and mod it.
I looked for other threads but couldnt find one detailed enough for a noob to follow but i want to build it with 12v9AH battery to give it a bit more power and give some extra room for mods.
Remote control with phone ( going to plug in wireless xbox controller to phone to get the throttle & stearing axis control
Possibility to expand functions such as lights, radio etc
Being able to control steering ( with axis ) and switch steering off ( so kid can steer )
Being able to control throttle ( with axis ) and also have pedal on floor ( so kid can throttle )
Now do you think its possible for such a noobie to take on this project and can you help me with parts needed ( i can solder etc myself and handle code decently ) ?
Sincerely playful dad with too much time on his hands.
