Hello

The building of a feather is very similar to an ant. So you need all the same bits.

The cheapest motors i have found are the 9.99 drills from argos. Use Ukrobotics.com 's guide on how to modify them

It's a project I'm thinking of undertaking, if only for the hell of it, though I need a bit more knowledge first about the actual circuit. Rhys keeps saying he'll knock up summit to show me, but he never does...lol. If I can get to a stage I'm comfortable I could get it working, I would have a go.
