The base now has the Sonar Array Module, Motor Controller Module and Motor Driver mounted, as well as a heap of SRF04's!

Middle layer hasn't really changed.
I tried using a 1Gb CompactFlash card as storage but haven't been able to get the motherboard to recognise it. I think the adapter might be faulty.



Top layer has the Power Management Module, Belkin wireless adapter, reset button and the uber-cool missile launch main power switch.
As an added safety feature, lightly tapping the missile cover when open slams it shut cutting all power to the droid.
