New robot for Scoperta

I am have decided, the driveable furniture is cool, no doubt. But some people are looking for somthing a little more in hand, and less under butt. 

I will be building two units. Number one is a three wheel golf caddy (ecycle - free) that will be driven from a Helicopter Trainer remote (ecycle - free). Typically these remotes are wired and have no electronics inside. I will be modifying mine to have a Synapse Radio from solarbotics ($35), this will give it a 3km range line of sight. Both the caddy and the remote will be run from an Arduino Uno (30$ on ebay). I will use some 12v 7ah batteries (battery world - 11$ x 2)
