This is my first attemp at any sort of robotic project and it was a real learning experience. Until now, I've never even owned an RC car or anything that used servos. I built R. Giskard from a kit with some modifications (I like the Futaba servos better cuz they are easier to mod). I hope you all get a good chuckle out of my superior wiring job. I'll clean it up as modifications continue. Heck, I'm a programmer and I wanted a mobile platform to play with. :)

It has two servo calibration boards (front and rear) with trimmers under the chassis that allowed me to set the stop value of my choice. This meant I had to mount the battery holders on top of the chassis instead of the bottom. I haven't wired the IRPD unit yet. After that, I'm going to install sonar and a camera (xCam2 Wireless Color).
