Post build a robot with mecanum wheels
How can I build a robot with mecanum wheels? I am wanting to design/build a robot with mecanum wheels. Is it possible to connect the 4 independent motors straight to a rc reciever and program the remote control to drive the servos. Basically i need to know if its possible to build this robot without the use of a microcontroller and other electrical devices. Also, any other input would be greatly appreciated.

No, not really. If you want the robot to be able to rotate while translating, you'll need to do some mixing of the joystick values. You could set up some weird electronics, but it would be much easier to just use a microcontroller.

and also quadrotors. Quadrotors!
