While the PilotTrak V2 is a huge improvement over the original PilotTrak, it is quite a bit bigger. There’s something about the cuteness of an absolutely tiny tank-like vehicle, and it’s nice to be able to pocket it and go anywhere. Solution? PilotTrak V2 Mini.
This version sacrifices a few features. There’s no secondary idler wheels, and there’s no servo tilt for the camera. The electronics are housed in the space freed up by the removal of the servo. While it’s a difficult build that requires de-pinned or micro receivers, it is not much larger than a standard TinyWhoop.
I’m probably going to add very fast (500rpm @ 3v) motors to make up for the lack of off-road ability.
