I jump on this site every few days in the course of building the rov (lately a little distracted with other stuff and a little hung up on the electronics but we'll get it). How is it that I have seen no mention of David's kickstarter "Zero to Maker"?!? Check it out, its almost over too, just a couple days left. Very nice project, excited to diversify my maker skills.
Here is a cool interview with David by the guys at inventables.
