As mentioned in my last post, i wanted to equip my tank with a spinning turret.
I started out by making a top plate on which to mount the turret
The turret itself is a small cardboard box with a stepper motor attached. I used a cheap 5v stepper motor from ebay. The stepper motor control sequence is running on an Attiny 85 microcontroller, which in turn gets direction input from the main microcontroller of the tank (the atmega 168)
I made the “gun” using a pencil and some paper.
