Hello everyone, long time member/fan of the EZ-Robot, just been admiring in the shadow. During the thanksgiving break had a few hours downtime so finally decided to complete ( will never be complete) my long time project of converting an R/C truck to an EZ-robot truck. Now that the IoTiny have been release to the general public, figure it will be a great platform for it. I am using a regular EZ-B v4/1 for now until the loTiny are back in stock.

I Removed and replaced the rear motor with a bigger motor /tire combo, kept original steering wheel motor ( not a servo).

Android app currently using an Asus Zenphone 2 which have a 5.5" screen real estate. The movements button are all scripted to tailor the the custom R/C steering platform.

script for steering control is nothing fancy ex:
[#ForwardRight
# Enter the ON/OFF for the second HBridge to move
# the direction for this script.


PWM(d0, 35)
PWM(d1, 100)
Set(d2, off)
Set(d3, on)
Set(d4, off)
Set(d5, on)
Sleep( 1500)
Release (d5)

Cool to see it finally finished! I have the same battery, but have noticed a poor life on it. Have you seen similar?

#3

Terrible performance, usually last about 6 minutes.

#4

That's pretty cool !

#5

Good to know! I guess I wont be buying from there anymore! I think its the charger that comes with it that screws the battery up.

Looks great! And good to see you back on the forum!
