Comments
Peddler is a small, compact and fast robot. It cost about 250USD to build and took about three mounths to complete. I built it alone without any outside help.

Size:
Lenght 9"
Width 8"
Height 4.5"

Power:
Peddler draws his power from four rechargible alkaline batteris, mounted in parrallel.

Control:
Peddler uses a Futaba Atack two channel AM radio for control. Secondary motor control is atcheved with two Duratrax Hobby speed controllers.

Speed:
Peddler is very fast, I have yet to measure exactly how.

Weapons:
Peddler has a set of (two or four, depending on my mood) spikes that can be fitted thrue the holes in his bumber.

Chassis:
Peddlers chassis is made up of allumium pothole sheet.

Motors:
Peddler uses two custom designed motors\gearboxs with custom mounting holes for its axles.

Wheels:
Peddlers wheels\axles were taken from a toy RC car. I sent a sample axle to the company that was building my custom motors\gearboxs so they could fabricate a perfect fit...works great. The wheels are four inch diamiter, fully pnumatic. One castor wheel is glued to the black eletronics box's bottom for stablization. I will be replacing it with two castors latter on for added stability.

Ground Clearence:
Peddler stands proud about two centimeters of the ground.

Problems encounterd:
Tends to flip to one side, this will be fixed with the addition of a second castor wheel to the back.
Radio has some, not much, RF interference.
Motors overheat and take a few seconds to cool off.
Batteries only last for about 45 minuts of use.
