Planning on checking out flight schools this weekend. I am also looking into PIC vs. Basic Stamps for a robot to enter in DPRG contests.
My current hardware on hand is an old laptop, part of a Battlebot, and a SSC . I was going to use the SSC with Wifi to control the Battlebot but ran into a snag when so much of the development was contingent on Windows. I found some drivers in Mac and Linux but haven't had the time to test them.
I'd really like to develop something like the hovering monkeys .
