Today it stopped raining enough I was able to get the RC car outdoor to run. I was able to clock the car at 18 MPH. Fast enough to win at last year’s AVC, but not likely for 2012 and most certainly not for 2013. I will have to upgrade the car from NiCad batteries to something with more power. I may also need to upgrade the stop Traxxis motor.
But for now, the car goes plenty fast for collecting data and trying out various navigation concepts.
