Anything happening here?
But this is where you'll need someone else to help with advice.
I only know the basic theory of this sort of setup.
When it comes to the electronic side of things I have no idea...
Make it RC.
It'll be worth it in the end.
The looks you'll get, walking next to or behind it, as it cruises along by itself haha.
Same principle as these mowers, where you control (steer) the rear (drive)wheels individually with the levers and the front wheels just follow.
Yep, basically the back wheels, the big ones, drive AND steer.
They steer the cart by having individual motors.
When both motors turn at the same speed in the same direction it goes forward....
Some light reading which might be of interest.

Not too bad....
long time no see.
Did you end up selling that Tone monster servo in the end..?
Funny, yet somewhat irrelevant.
What was RC like in the 60s?
was there the huge selectin of different cars, planes, boats etc that there is today?
Replacement parts, aftermarket parts,...
Very very very nice and tidy builds!
Two thumbs up from me!
It is what it is.
Last post on the first page is from August last year.
Just proves my point (and the OP's)
I said everything I had to say in the first post of that thread.
This forum fizzled out a long time ago.

There's a few threads on the...
