M5 Stuart Tank R/C Conversion

A Savage///Circuits Project

Category: Projects
Created: Monday, 20 November 2006

Back in January of 2006 when the stores were clearing Christmas items, Ken Gracey of Parallax Inc picked up this tank for a mere $25.00 on clearance. Knowing that I was looking for a platform larger than a BoE-Bot to experiment on with some GPS and servo turret controls he dropped this beast on my desk.

The battery in mine was a standard 12V @ 7Ah SLA battery. $10.00 at most places.
