hi erco,
Cool project! Funny, while watching your video I suddenly saw it grow, sprout a weed-eater head & gas engine. Sure hate yard work in this heat. Hmm… lounge chair, remote control, Picaxe weed-eater…
Thanks for the inspiration!

I used an interesting workaround on this robot chassis to send IR commands over a simple 433 Mhz radio link. The IRIN decoder in the receiving 20M2's firmware allows SERVOPOS commands to operate servos continuously while awaiting new commands. Details here.

No, but that's an interesting thought. It comes with a PC app to program the messages through a micro USB connection, so there would be some legwork involved to interface a Picaxe.

BTW now you can get them in red, white, blue or green. https://www.ebay.com/itm/153701089837

I figure they might have a USB to serial converter built in that could be bypassed once the communication is sniffed. For $5, I might give it a try this winter.
