Hello all I got my kit the other day and just started to play with it today and yes when it came in i did hook a servo up just to see if it worked then i did nothing with it till today lol Some time before xmas i got a rc snow cat for 70$ with the intent to turn it into a bot I took it apart about a week ago then let it sit there Started with wiring up an H bridge to the EZ-B and kinda mounting it in/on the chassi then powered it up and played with it for abit till i took pics Now i kinda have a working chassi

Well its a ..... start lol:P

Yup:D:D:D Well For the most part it is EZ but i did have some problems could not get the pwm to work it was ither on or off and could not setup the joystick control for my stick the way i want it. Asfar as soldering i have few tools bad eyes no bench no cleaner for my iron and a vary sensative smoke detector lol So i had to solder it up out on the deck in the wind lol so i think i did pritty good lmao

this video is one i found of the same model rc toy i started with i did not get any pics of it before i took it apart
