How can I build a RC car from scratch?
Parts to connect motor to wheels
External communication (e.g. bluetooth, wi-fi)
Material to build the chassis
I have a Computer Science degree and I work with embedded systems, so my major problems here are:
How to choose the correct motor for the job (type of motor, torque, consumption, velocity that I can expect, etc)
The best way to control the chosen motor
How to connect the motor to the wheels ( I want to make a car with gears, but for the first project it will be fine if it's just a DC motor connected to some wheel, without any axle)
I don't expect you to give me these explanations but only pointing me to some good information source (books, websites, other instructables). The idea with this project it's to make a small RC car controlled by bluetooth/wi-fi with some sensors and using the PCB as part of the chassis.
