Prepping for ArctiRover(?)

RcArduino has some neat articles about putting together a small robot, and some interesting notes on interfacing RC receivers to Arduino.

RC Arduino Robot

Looks like not to much to put one together.  Maybe I'll give it a try!

Tamiya 70157 Universal Plate Set (2pcs.)
Tamiya 70100 Track and Wheel Set
Tamiya 70168 double gearbox

He's got his own motor controller; here's a ready-built serial model:

Pololu low-voltage dual serial motor controller
Low-Voltage Dual Serial Motor Controller + Tamiya Double Gearbox Combo

This motor is recommended as an upgrade over the stock motor:

Brushed DC Motor: 130-Size, 6V, 11.5kRPM, 800mA Stall
