Not Much For Sharing But Just To Get Reactions To What I'm Building

If the neighbors don't complain, a good sound system with directional speakers and cool sounds might help with your overall goal.

I certainly was not offended by the AR. I have one and like shooting it.

How about a super loud air horn?

compressed air is good, just expensive to come up with the compressor that can do 4500 PSI.

Honestly, unless you are going to get within 150 feet or so of the animals, I would not use the paintballs. They are not accurate enough. I would think the sound of the robot would scare them more than getting hit with a paintball anyway. Paintballs flatten when they come out of the barrel. They are not like bullets and become really very non-aerodynamic at speeds that would be high enough for anything with pretty good fur to really feel much.

I played with just a shirt on and would get some whelps but it sure didn't slow me down.

rubber ammo would limit you to about 80 feet probably. pepper is still contained within a jel coat so it will have similar limitations to the normal paintballs.

I think at this point what I am going to do is finish cutting steel and get the frame welded. I am guessing from what I saw when I ordered the EZ-B4 that It is back ordered and may be a while to get it.

So, I'll keep waiting and read and research as much as possible here to get a head start on the EZ controller option.

Trying the airhorn, music and lights is cheap an fast to test. I can tell you this, the cows were mystified at first with this thing when it rolled up on them. the next time a few days later one of the calfs was trying to play with it. So I don't think the coyotes are going to be the least bit intimidated with just a rolling base. We'll see

Anyone here have any idea how long it takes to get the v4 now?

About a month. DJ said shipping would be about a month behind for the next 4 months or so.

I ordered three cameras and one EZB(4) controller 6 weeks ago and DHL delivered the package yesterday. The controller was missing but it could of been that the packer didn't know the controller is two parts and just included the power unit. EZ Robot is sending me a replacement next week.

Well worth the wait I think. For now it looks like they are going through a growth cycle. If they keep this up they'll be in the big leagues soon. DJ Sures, no matter how successful EZ-Robot becomes I hope you keep the small company way of doing business.

Hope the company prospers and you are all paid well for the hard work.

Personally i love the AR Smile lol , i have a couple gunner robots. It is a fantastic challenge but honestly it also goes to say there is a huge safety factor. Obviously hes thinking more along the lines of a airsoft or paintball replica but that still has about 80 percent of the same engineering challanges.

Also since the forum rules were created and posted 2 years ago there are no rules agianst robots having lasers, guns , projectiles , darts , bb's , lawn mower blades , saws , water jets , paint ball guns, chainsaws, hammers, flame throwers or time altering devices.

, but please , don't use curse language or ague with others. We gotta keep it clean for all the other mad scientists in here.

WoW Josh! I'm thinking you're setting your self up for some bad JuJu. After seeing this post I thought I might mention my RoBo jeep project. I did see that it's still in the "share" section of the forum. I still have not finished it. I'm down to a steering servo/setup and misc wiring. If anyone is interested I'd be more then happy to share.
