Mars rover remixed and inspired by bolbots mars rover on Thinigverse. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1583399
The rover uses an Arduino 101 for brains, BLE for communication, and the Blynk app for remote control.
I found gathering all the info needed to dive into RC cars as a hobby kind of confusing. It helps a lot to have a mentor that you can ask questions but that is not always possible.
