Possible Mouse Droid Build?

Postby wegotthetools » Thu May 21, 2015 8:45 pm

Hello, Everyone!
I am interested in possibly staring a mouse droid. Can anyone help me by telling me where I can find a shell and other parts? Thanks!

Cal should be able help you out with those. Someone also offers them on astromech.net I think, but it's nice to get something local :)

Got my shell from Darren on the astromech website. They are the full size ones. Cal has the 3/4 size ones. With Cal's you can get the standard race car chassis with no mods and all the motors, servos, etc at any hobby store (I got mine at Colpar Hobbies). You can buy the IC chips (on the side) in bulk on ebay, but most are coming from China so you have to be patient getting them. Top greeblies are a pita, meaning we can't get them yet (a couple builders in the Mouse droid group on Yahoo are working on it). I've decided not to get top greeblies and will experiment with a solar panel that fits on top instead. MSE's are fairly easy to build and fairly inexpensive (mine was just shy of $500).
