The project is in full swing now. Accelerometers should soon be in the mail. I have decided on a nice little package from Dimension Engineering. The Buffered ±5g accelerometer seems like it will work fine for our needs. It comes in a handy 14-pin DIP form factor... Plug & Play! The ease of through-hole components rather then surface mount makes my heart sing!
I also have a new member to the team, Dalton. He is also completing his final year of school, and is a welcome addition to the team!
We still need to interface the rabbit board with the servos and figure out how to handle the multiple inputs from the RF receiver. The next couple weeks should be devoted to that task.
