Day 1 - July 3, 2017

While we were still waiting for two parts to arrive, we decided to get an early start on the build on July 3rd. We were able to remove the front axle and add the front caster wheels, add one rear wheel. We are working on adding the ESC for the one wheel.



Day 2 - July 7, 2017

Today we added the second rear wheel along with the second motor. We also connected the second battery and connected both motors to a Arduino Nano. After 2.5 hrs work we had to stop because we did not have all the parts to start assembling the PVC pipes. We also got the case for the joystick printed

Day 3 - July 10, 2017

It was a short build today. We just spent time working on making the PVC bracing for the truck.

Day 4 - July 17, 2017

Attaching the Joystick, and painting the PVC pipes ( 2 hrs)
