    Start of another Timelapse Buggy thingy

    Start of a new timelapse buggy, still waiting for more parts to arrive from the US to complete it.

    Looks fairly light to me. Will it take the weight of a dslr? The photos sort of don't give an impression of size.

    Good idea to quench its thirst, and demonstrate it's size. Looks like it will be steerable, will that be programmable, or remotely controlled.
    cheers marty

    Marty the steering will be controlled onboard by a servo controller, because it will be moving at a snails pace I can reach down and change the steering angle with the onboard servo controller as long as I change it in between shots and keep out of the way of thee camera.

    I'll post some more images as I continue to assemble it.

    When I order more stuff for it the items take 2 weeks to arrive then time to assemble and realise I need more items so more shipping time.
