I dont know when my obsession with tanks and tracked vehciles started but I have always wanted to build a tank. Problem is they are very big and heavy so the only real option I have is a scale model, a big scale model. The T1 was my first go at building a tracked robot and it turned out ok, however, it was not a tank as such.
Inbetween other comercial projects I have decided to build a 1/6 scale model of a tank, which will be just for me. It will not be a copy of any existing tank, more a mix inspired by several different models, but the aim is to make it look very futureistic.
To power it I will use a couple of wheelchair motors, which I must admit might be slightly overkill as each is rated at 650w but there is nothing like exessive power. Dimensions, I am thinking around 100cm long by 60cm wide and probably 30cm high, although this will probably change.
Either Cytron or Sabretooth ESC to control the motors, 2x12v 20Ah batteries running 24v. It will be a full metal build so probably massively heavy.
