Ordered

I got the parts ordered. Vex is great, but very overpriced, so I didn't get everything. I got Tank treads, compatible motors, and a chassis. I/m going to need a receiver and a breadboard. The base tank will either lead up to a paintball tank, or a rocket platform launching SAMs. Please comment, Paintball, rocket or other?

True, but the costs are significantly higher. The problem is: paintball works on a air system, using either compressed air, Co2, or Nitrogen. If the paintball tank was made, an on board air compressor would be used to fill a PVC reservoir. I don't know where the heck you get a air compressor that small. See video:
