"Will your robot need a sparring partner?"
 
Certainly! Sounds like great fun!

Very interesting. Will your robot need a sparring partner? I was thinking of building a model of a German "Fennek". It's a low profile recon vehicle with a telescoping sensor mask. I'd like to put my design for a thermal imaging sensor on something.

"Gene, what kind of track design are you using?"
 
Snow blower tracks with my home-made track sprockets.
 
 
The tracks are too short for being rctankcombat legal, but that is not the intention of this project. What I'm trying to do here is make a prototype for a machine with similar capabilities to a soldier on a (REAL)battlefield. The prototype will use a paitball marker on a gyro-stabilized turret. The chassis will have two modes of driving: moving around like a tank - akin to a soldier crawling, and standing up like a segway to bring the marker to eye-level and shoot over obstacles. I've got the segway balancing and moving part working on a little wheeled platform of about three pounds, now I need to implement this control on the actual vehicle. The turret platform swivles above the chassis to stay horizontal and above the chassis in the two different driving modes - prone or standing.

Hmm, looks like something I built. A second generation is in the works :)

Check out the track design - multiple roller chains.
