A major part of the pre-wiring is done. In simple terms the wires in the red electrical tape are power in from the batteries and the green wrapped wires is RC controlled power to the drive motor.
The black box on the right is the RC signal receiver for the remote control.
The digital readout on the left shows volts in as well as adjustable volts coming out the other end. It will be set to 4.5v for the receiver on the right. It will also show battery life so I know when to stop running and go charge back up.
Next part to wire up is the fuse box when it comes next week.
Here is a brand new for 2020 workshop and projects tour of our...

A few months before I started getting sick in 2009, my wife and I had the chance to meet George Lucas with Patches. The first robot I ever made. George liked the personality of my droid and it even accidentally blinded him with his holo projector light because the bucket of bolts was so excited to meet his maker.
This also marks the last time we ever left Nebraska even 10 year later.
