    Hi all,

    I'm currently in the process of gathering all the information so I can start on my new project of building my own remote control car. However Im currently stuck on picking out a suitable microcontroller that isn't going to break the bank.

    I need a cheapish chip that will allow me to control a couple motors, as well as being able to handle video as there will be a camera on the remote control car. It'll also be connecting wirelessly back to my controls.

    Can anybody recommend anything?

    Cheers :)

    Thanks for the reply! Hadn't considered the Rasp Pi at all for some reason, but they definitely look like a good piece of hardware.
    I'll be probably designing the pcb for the project myself, so I'm trying to stay away from dev boards. With that in mind, are the Cortex chips available for purchase just on their own?
