Im eventualy going to make a robot with no open face platforming, just IC'S and wires. Not atonomus, just a remote control. Forward,reverse,left,right thats it . Pretty straight forward. If you have any sugguestions or comments please post them.

The chipsets used in remote-control toys are available fairly cheap -- one chip on each end, batteries, and a couple transistors if you need to control more current than the chip can handle directly, for 4 on-off channels. Maybe $15 bucks for everything. Downside: Short range (basically, across the room.) I got a pair of these from one of the mail-order electronics supply houses some years ago, but never got around to building the project I wanted them for.

Of course an even cheaper solution may be to find a remote-control toy that does the sorts of things you want and cannibalize it.

Are you planning on building your transmitter and receiver also?
And if so will it be radio freq, sonic, infrared or what are you plans?
