I've decided to name my bot CD AVENGER. More details will be forthcoming!
I plan on using as much E-Waste as I can for my project. Here are some CD/DVD roms from my work that were dead and reclaimed from the recycle bin.
Weight is always an issue with small robotics. You have limited torque and amperage available to you. As you add more power (batteries) you also add more weight, it's a vicious cycle.
