This is a quick blog to explain some work I’ve done to convert a remote-controlled digger to use a Pi Zero, Dark Water 640, PS3 controller and a few other odds and ends to make a SUPER DIGGER!
My five-year-old son loves to play with construction toys. I’ve purchased several Bruder brand trucks and they are great! I envisioned someday modifying them to be remote-controlled.
I knew I wanted to use the Pi Zero. I played around with some Arduino devices, but I like having the full control a Pi gives. And, the price of the Zero is great! But, I needed a reasonably priced motor controller to handle all six motors on the digger. Fortunately I found the Dark Water company in the U.K.
