Next step is connecting the electronics. This is where is starts to get fun.

Iíve also been brushing up on my CAD skills to be able to design stuff to cut.
Looking good Jason...

It's Alive!!

I got everything wired up and ran a few tests. Other than having to reverse a couple of the motors, everything worked well.

Next up is cleaning up the spaghetti wiring and figuring out the proper settings and configuration for the controller.
