Hi askjerry,I've included a new step to this instructable for the FPV cam. Hope this helps you. If you have any further questions, let me know
Hi John,the two motors run at the same speed and steering happens by the rear wheel.I don't know if it is possible to run the motors on different speed with this transmitter.For my FPV Rover (https://www.instructables.com/id/FPV-Rover-V20/) I use "differential thrust". But for this I use the Taranis as transmitter with a lot more functions.
With the right transmitter, this shouldn't be a problem. But then you have to dismount the servo for steering, so that the rear wheel is "loose". But with this it would be hard driving backwards.
Thanks a lot. The GoPro is used only for recording. For FPV I use just the little AIO camera.If you want to use the GoPro as FPV cam, you need an additional FPV transmitter.
There is no section yet, as I did it two days before my holidays :-DAs I have the trike with me, I'll try to do this in the next days. The AIO camera needs 3.7v. So you would need a step-down converter from the 12v.As I had some spare parts from my tiny-whoop clone (batteries) I use these to power the cam. So you don't have to solder a step-down to the battery and you don't have to unplug the camera, if you take the top down.
Hi Antonio,sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately I know nothing about arduinos. Sorry
Legit point. I have that in my FPV-Rover (https://www.instructables.com/id/FPV-Rover-V20/)Maybe I'll find a way to include a servo for this somewhere
Well, I wouldn't call it advantage, but the steering is "aggressive" with a rear steering wheel. It's like driving backwards with your car and steering.
Thanks a lot. Hope to see a build from you here and on thingiverse

Hi,on step 10 you can see it on the first image. I soldered two XT60 connectors together to be able to attach both batteries. From the it goes directly do the esc and from there to the motors.
The case does not affect the voltage, but the motors :-DThe motors from V2 can only handle 2S. And even with just 2S the rover is crazy fast. The motors from V1 can handle 3S.
The main difference is voltage. 2S has 7.2v and 3S 11.1v.You can use 3x18650 batteries in series, so that you have 11.1v.
Hi Alexey,if you want to use those motors, than only V1 will work. V2 is a complete new design (although it looks identically) and those motors will not work. In Step 3 you can see how the new motors in this version will be mounted.

To view the FPV signal you need either a fpv-goggle (like this https://goo.gl/7gyVkt or this what I use https://goo.gl/7gyVkt) or a fpv-monitor like this https://goo.gl/7gyVkt
How to Make Remote Controlled Car
Hi, to control this I use a regular remote control (in my case the Taranis X9Dplus https://goo.gl/npDwJa).The FPV parts can be found on the BOM (camera, transmitter...)Depending on the things you want to use, you can add different components to the rover. For the first rover I built a rubber gun that can be used for V2.0 as well (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1269962), that needs two additional channels. My transmitter has 8 channels. You need 2 for driving and one for the tilt-mechanism. that would mean, that you could add 5 more things.In one of the last images you can see the space between the batteries. You can use that for additional electronics
Both depends on where you drive. With my previous Rover I had a Futaba remote control and the range wasn't that good. something about 60m-80m.With this V2.0 I use a Taranis. As this just finished this week, I couldn't test the range so far. Video should be a little bit more, if you don't have any obstacles between you and the rover.
Es ist keine spezielle Steuerung drinnen. Es ist nur ein Empfänger, in meinem Fall der V8FR II (https://goo.gl/JZphr9), drinnen. Gesteuert wird der Rover mit dem rechten Joystick und mit links kann ich die Camera steuern.
The printed parts should be about 15-20 Euros. Depending on your filament supplier. I pay 18€ for a 800g spool.Electronics depends on what you have and if you want to drive with FPV. If you already have a remote control and don't want to use FPV, the parts should be about 60€.
I use a taranis x9d plus. this is my remote control for almost everything
You're right. I just added the video to the top section :-D
Thank you. Took a while until it was ready. I had to redesign it from scratch due to migration to 540 motors
At the moment I run them with 2S and that is really powerful. I tried it once with 3S for short time and that is crazy. The ESC should handle that, the motors maybe not for long time
