Rocker Bogey 6 Wheel Drive Mars Rover

 I had about eight wheels and matching motors around so I decided to make a six wheel drive Arduino controlled rover.  Then I discovered the rocker-bogie design that can handle really fough terrain.  So I 3D printed a design and modified it for a bigger platform for the electronics.

I have not figured out the front suspension yet and I would love to include one of my 3D prited Nerf guns in the design!

I cut a hold to mount a rotating servo in the middel of the platform.  there is not enough room for the arduino, batteries, and motor controller!
