This is my first robotics project.
I am planning on building a four wheeled robot capable of being controlled via a remote control.
I was wondering what the difference is between ESCs and micro-controllers were and how they could work together, if such a thing is possible (I was looking at the Arduino Uno- R3 SMD if that helps).
My current understanding was that ESCs require little effort except to plug them in to the motors and the receiver of my remote control, before programming a switch on said remote to enable moving left and right while the Arduino required coding in the Arduino program in C++, which I am a beginner to.
If you also know any great bang-for-buck ESCs, motors, wheels and remote controls my ears are open, and I have a budget of about $300-350 AUD.
Thanks for your time, and I hope that wasn’t too big of a wall of text.
