Actobotics Runt Rover™ Bogie Project – Part I

BogieFrom: ServoCity

Actobotics Runt Rover™ Bogie

We recently got in two of these great 6WD kits from ServoCity. One of our most active Contributors, Carol Hazlett, has one of the Bogies (among other Runt Rover Kits she will review in later issues) and is working on a unique project with the Bogie as it’s base. I have the other Bogie and have gotten through the kit construction and intend on making my Bogie a fully functional RC robot as well as give the ability to function autonomously.

Project Plan:

Reader Input:

I will do my utmost to make progress on this project by next issue and report on what’s going on with it… the successes and failures. I sometimes learn more from a failure than from a success so let’s see how much of each we find. If something strikes you about this project… please email me at with what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!
