The eBay links did not resolve the question of specific plans but appear to be parts for mowers without any relationship to robotic or remote control mowers.
#3  
The specific plans would have to be created since no-one has actually built and published a remote controlled robotic mower. The only other area that might provide you with some insight may possibly be the modification of a motorized wheelchair.

Unless you buy a commercial model, your basically on your own ... I made my own with a couple of high powered DC gear motors, frame tubing from Lowes, a cutting motor with homemade blade, sabertooth motor controller, Handheld transmitter... Basically made it up as I went... Winged it, if it were... So I don't have any plans... Like Doc said, got my ideas from roaming the internet because there isn't much specifically on the topic...

Modifications of a electric wheelchair is a good idea, thanks.
