    Thanks for sharing your rig :thumbs

    What code are you using to control it, SMC3 or something else?

    How do the wiper motors perform when it is under load?

    hello thanks so much for the question! I don't speak English well but I will answer. the code i use is smc3 and the wiper motors work fine even when they are overloaded i don't see much of a problem other than some heating, only the motor that runs with a lot of difficulties is lost traction but the rest works fine, so i'm thinking in putting heat sinks to sharpen the engine that does a lot of work to maintain the temperature. I'm using the wiper motors because here in Africa everything is expensive I can't afford to buy a robust one

    1. Thanks. For the pedals I'm using sensors, I just don't know how to send you a video showing it.

    I'm impressed. I lived 1 year in cambodia, and the life situation seems to be similar, you are doing a miracle !! how old are you? What are you studying? you have a beautiful future ahead of you!

    Curiosity: how much does a new engine cost in Mozambique?
