I have an Arducopter and an Arduplane and would like to build an Ardurover using an existing APM 2.6.
What is the largest frame for an Ardurover i can buy ?
Does ardurover support 4 wheel drive ?
I want something i can send back very rough ground. Ideally something the size of a go-kart. Has anyone ever done this ?
The ArduRover firmware is not designed to control four, separate, independent motors.
It will control one ESC that is connected to a motor that is driving a 4WD rover chassis.
As Jesse Jay has stated there are 1/5 scale R/C gas and electric chassis.
I have seen 1/4 scale R/C gas dune buggy style chassis.
I'm working on rover based on a 1/5th scale rc car. There are no limits on the size you can build, but doubt you'll find a ready to go system. It's up to you to figure out how to connect steering/throttle/brakes/shifting transmission, etc. My friend ran a full size Jeep last year in the Sparkfun AVC, but it wasn't using any APM software. Go kart? I'd suggest ATV. A kids ATV would be great project I think. I just might have to try that one day... Four wheel drive makes no difference, the software doesn't care.
