Step 2: Gathering Parts and Tools

I am going to give links for each part used in this project. You can buy everything from there. You can use Bluetooth modules as I did for the first time or you can use directly the long range HC-12 modules. When you buy batteries bevare of fake batteries, buy Samsung, Panasonic or Sony.

Tools:

  1. Soldering Iron
  2. Solder
  3. Glue Gun
  4. Wire Stripper
  5. Wire Cutter
  6. Ultra-Strong Double Sided Tape
  7. Screwdriver
  8. Some Arduino Programming Skills...

Softwares:

  • Arduino IDE Compiler
  • Software Serial Library
  • Adafruit Motor Shield Library (Download from Github)

Parts:

Only for Brainwave User's: I have to notice that I used a ahcked Nacomimi Brainwave Toy, that is made by the same company, but to save time use this headset instead:

  1. NeuroSky Brainwave Headset
  2. HC-05 Bluetooth
  3. Mindwave Library from Github

If your parts arrived let!s get to work!

<p>can i transmit Webcam data over HC 12 ?</p>
I have a problem with this code. The controls work, but after a while the motors keep running without giving a command (they keep running even with the transmitter off) It seems the arduino uno gets stuck in a case. I added three 100nF caps to each motor - without success. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
<p>Great idea. I got excited to use the FPV Wifi camera you link to for another project so went and got a couple off Ebay. Unfortunately what you link to is not a Wifi camera. May have been at one time and is 'advertised' and described by the 'store' as Wifi but they obviously either don't know or don't care what they are selling. Caveat Emptor to anyone else thinking of this.</p>
<p>Yea, I also got that camera and it does not seem to have any wifi. I also can not figure out what the wires are. When I open it up to look the yellow is marked ad positive and red as negative. Nothing is happening when I connect red to 3.3 V and black to ground so I am not sure it is working at all anyway.</p>
<p>I did get that far. You figured out the same polarity I got. If you have the SD card installed and then connect the black wire to the 3.3V it will start recording video for as long as its connected to the 3.3V. If you 'pulse' it by momentarily touching black to 3.3V, it'll take a screen shot and store it as a jpg in a separate folder on the SD card. It also has and records audio with the video. </p>
<p>Dualism is a lie.</p>
Hi I'm having trouble buildibg it. The uno-board (receiver) seems to receive signals from the transmitter (blinking while turning the joystick) but the motors dont run. Is it posdible that this joystick is not compatible?
Plz need help <br>
<p>Hello, yes I am here.</p>
For how many distance the camera work? It is work on wifi? <br>
For how much the camera work? And it work on wifi? I need same wifi source to connect it to my phone?
Can i do it without programing skills? I can just copy the code and past in the prog.app?
Yes you can ☺
Hello i need your help with sonething please can i you with email or any app like facebook ,....? This is my email Roudyhazzouri2001@gmail.com
Thx :)
<p>Hi, AMAZING PROJECT, really loved it, want to try out something similar on my quadruped project,</p><p><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/QUATTRO-the-Arduino-Quadruped-Robot/">https://www.instructables.com/id/QUATTRO-the-Arduin...</a></p><p>but i have used up all my pins for the servos, any suggestions?</p><p>thnx in advance</p>
Bonjour, <br>Bravo pour votre projet. Une question : comment avez vous branch&eacute; la cam ?<br>D'avance merci
<p>hey, thanks for all the links and step by step instructions. my parts are all ordered and are begining to come in the mail. I got the double gear box first..what ratio did you build the double gear boxes? they can be built in 4 configurations...12.7/1 or 38.2/1 or 114.7/1 or 344.2/1. I am happy to play around to see what works, but what did you use??</p>
<p>I found this just now and thought it might help.</p><p>https://www.pololu.com/product/114/specs</p><p>If you look in the different tabs (specs, faqs) there is enough info to know what rpm each ratio will get.</p>
<p>Same here. My gearbox arrived today and I was wondering the same thing. The ratio used in the video looks good to me, so I was wondering which you used.</p>
<p>wow nice</p>
<p>amazing! voted all 3!</p>
good work
<p>very nice!!!!</p>
<p>Magnifique! Excellent Build!</p>
<p>wow. This is very good. </p>
<p>a tank controlled with brain??cant imagine what a full size will look like lol!</p>
<p>Du bist mir wirklich am besten, ich bin sehr stolz auf Dich! Viel Spa&szlig;, Erfolg und Ausdauer! Ich bin immer bei Dir Schatz! :)</p>
<p>Dankesch&ouml;n Kicsipuca! :) </p>
This is the coolest thing I've seen ever
<p>Thank you very much! You can give me a kindly Vote. ;) </p>
<p>would you be willing to sell this to me on ebay?</p>
<p>Sorry :) I can't...</p>
<p>verry nice</p>
Oh this is a verry nice project.I vote for you:))
