DIY motor for drawing robot

Last Wednesday at ModLab I got to see the progress that Doug is making on his motors! These motors are for a drawing robot experiment.

The story is that he’s making some controllers for quad copter motors so he wants to dabble with motors and motor controllers in a less demanding environment for a while.

Then he’ll take what he’s learned and apply it in the helicopter environment.

I think that’s a great methodology. Plus I’m sure he’ll come up with a really cool drawing robot system!

Perhaps I’ll adopt these motors!

Here are some pictures of his DIY arduino, motor controller and motor!
