It is not the real copy and its 'working!
This rover controlled via Bluetooth from remote. You can watch the picture from WiFi camera. It has a gimbal for camera, arm and two headlights. And all six wheels are driven!
Unfortunately, I am not ready yet to upload sources of hardware and software, but you can use my 3D-printed parts.

Hi, the DWG of for the body seem corrupted or invalid... Also, I don't see the part for the top of the head, where it is ?
EDIT: Ok, I managed to load it. It was a newer version than my software. But there is no bottom plate for the body, is it normal ?

looking for the total package of printed parts for the rover listed here. cost info please.

Guys, please, wait for a lettle more time. Soon I'll publish an improved version

So... how the new improved version goes ?

Any updates ? Is the new version ready ?

Any new updates? Pretty much have everything pretty, just a few more pieces to go.

Классная работа! Моё почтение.

Hi, thanks! Where did you find link for this project?
Скажите, пожалуйста, за последний день сильно подскочила посещаемость. Где вы нашли ссылку?

На данный момент на главной странице Thingiverse в поле "Featured Collections" есть коллекция "Red Rovers" пользователя glitchpudding. Зайдя в эту коллекцию можно найти Ваш проект. Проект классный, вызывает интерес. Судя по всему, отсюда и источник трафика) По крайней мере, одна из причин.

Оу! Понял, спасибо)

Wow.. This is the most awesome printable robot I saw in my life ! I'll certainly give it a try...

Hi! Glad that you like it)
Please wait for a little. Soon I'll publish new improved version.

Hi, Are we about to see the new version ?

Sorry for being so long. I am about to publish it. If you want to, I can send all the sources to you. Just mail me at [email protected]

Don't worry, I am not in a hurry :)

You can take your time, I just wanted to know if you still worked on it.

I can't wait to see it !

Hi again.
How long are the aluminium beams? And could you please upload the laser cutting file as a PDF?

Would it be possible to post a list of hardware used? And more pictures showing how it's made. Is the body laser cut? If so could you please post the files, and thickness of used material? Good work!

Thank you. In "Things files" there is file "DetailLaserCutting.dwg". Thickness - 3mm.
You can find more info in my russian website http://www.customelectronics.ru/model-marsohoda-msl-curiosity/. I recommed you to use your own harware and software. My rover based on LinkIt One board and Atmega8.

Какой интересный сайт. Добавил в закладочки ^_^

Спасибо. Как вам мои дилетантские ликбезы о коптерах? Кстати, я буду с этим проектом да GEEK PICNIC в этом году в Питере. На стенде Mediatek.

Ну, про коптеры мне уже не так интересно :) у вас там больше для новичков. Выставка - это здорово, если выберусь, постараюсь вас найти.

Отличная работа :)

Your robot looks great! Lots of nice features; thanks for sharing!

Thank you! Hope that it will be usefull for somebody
