    Hello All,
    I did this build around March and have been using The mower all summer.
    Its built using a mobility chair. The parts acuired from the mobility chair include,
    drive motors/tires
    swivel wheels
    Wire harness
    would have also been batteries if they were still good.

    This is the motor driver i used: https://www.dimensionengineering.com/products/sabertooth2x60
    Then I had to buy 2 new 12v gel batteries
    The main components required for the drive system is,
    1)motors
    2) motor driver
    3) Batteries
    4) radio.
    The sabertooth motor driver has built in servo signal reading capability in order to control the motors properly over a RC radio.

    i'm impressed :)

    only downside i see here is dual system (batteries need charging)

    when's the production run start? :)
