Robot tank :P

Hey every body, just \making use of these new Forums :D

I got a U.S. M4T1A3 1/16 scale RC tank for my birthday a few months ago.

what i plan to do with it is to replace the mother board inside of it with my own. add a laser sight to the turret along with a cell phone camera.
Add some sensors to the front and back to detect walls/moving objects and have it communicating with my pc via wireless transceivers AKA nRF24l01

this is my second project using micro controllers and want to make this as cool as possible.

i will get pics soon if u guys want and will update according to what i've done.

so far I've fitted the laser sight to the turret and did a simple mod to the BB shooter to auto load once fired.
the mother board has been replace with a solderless breadboard and a few H-Bridge circuits under it.

next im going to interface my nRF24l01s and make the tank controlled by my pc.

P.S. if this goes well. i'll make it controlled by my psp :P

That's a pretty sweet project, smartie! What micro are you using to control it?
