First test of the new version of the ball balancing robot

In the new version of the ball balancing robot, we use Arduino MEGA 2560 as the controller and also change the sensor to MPU6050. This is the first test of the new one. More test video will be updated soon. Next, we will change the encoder motor to stepper motor. Maybe it will be more stable.

Here is the testing video, more videos will be updated soon.

    3 things
    1) is there anyway to reduce/ get rid of the sound and what part causes the sound
    2) can u come out with an in depth tutorial for making this robot
    3) what is the total cost

      1)There are no great way to solve this problem.
      2)Yes, we will do it if we have time.
      3)About $300
