Mega Hurtz paintball robot is the remote-controlled, armor-plated tank

A very nice project to learn more for community's Ardurover project.

Ok but noone here will take the responsibility as a developer if an airsoft rambo shot out his friend's eye with an ardurover tank....

Substitute the assault rifle with a fire extinguisher and it will be ok as a robotic fire engine...

yeh sorry but i dont think this will do much for our hobby one bad shot and the good work people do here will be all in vain once the media saw it


but just my opinion

Well it is a good idea for Holywood,robotic demolition shows or some special operations, but definitely not for a hobby...Fire extinguisher is very good idea Varga!

Aside from this, I wonder how long it will run before batteries are finished?

Guys guys guys..
You read about this project and all you understand is that the weapon is dangerous??
Ok..let's talk about it..
Community faced some problems with the ardurover project..this guy here solved a lot of problems..he combined 4x4 all terain vehicle with good speed(a con of crawlers),estamblished a good video and audio connection and a good range..
He also combined sensor (that's what i understood after a fast visit to his site on my mobile)
That's my opinion..i might be wrong..but i think that you must pay a visit to his site..

here you can find the other Projects.

Obviously this is a military based project but ardurover can be based on this vehicles (without weapons of course) just the mechanic part.

well picture of the "romps" is much better. descirbed applications also.

range - 1200ft (365meters). but asking directly the guy will do better job I guess - for battery type, how "oversized" are the tires, what is remote control, etc.

however video in kickstarter seems very military - it is more automatic paintball guns and girls in black with guns(there are certain magazines for such auditory), instead of technical and functional details. some pictures are actually repeating several times. Just remember stupid "terror" videos from Ar.drone. However I start sound like a pratronizing and judging something I never actually touch...

I remember a video of a Trex carrying and firing an automatic pistol.

That was a few years ago.

The difference between toy and weapon is often a case of determined stupidity.
