Step 1: Design
The machine uses primarily off the shelf components for the internals. The drive motors are modified 18v dewalt drill motors with matching gearboxes, the weapon motor is an Ampflow A28-150 DC motor, the drive motor controllers are Holmes Hobby BR-XL controllers, the weapon controller is a IFI Victor 885, the radio system is a Spektrum DX6 tx and BR6000 rx, and the batteries are custom A123 packs, all of which are available in the used form or newer form in the case of the radio equipment online.
The top and rear armor is a custom composite layup made of Zylon. It is three layers thick and the layup was done on an open mold made of plywood and car body filler.
The image of the electrical diagram shows a simplified version of how the wiring was done in Moros. As it shows, the drive and weapon are on independent power, this is to avoid serious voltage drop to the receiver and to allow a lower cell count battery to be used on the drive side for reduced weight.
