You found a free shipping auction  
"PC programmable computer controlled 6 channel RC Model excavator " I am now using the 18M2 for the computer controller, One of the new features of the M2 series is it can run up to 4 program tasks at once.
This is a PC programmable RC excavator.   It has 6 built-in operating modes that are easy to change, just hold down one of the remote buttons as you turn on the excavator.  It will wave its arm indicating that it ready for remote commands.  Not only can you operate the CAT using the long range (1500 feet line of sight) remote, but you can activate different sequences and timed movements.   You can even program it to record movements and at loss of signal over so much time it will reverse its movements to go back to last known radio signal.   It will operate like a Mars Rover with built-in fail-safes.   Different modes changes the remote button mapping and how long each command moves a motor. 
 There is even a Demo mode where the excavator does a preprogrammed dance.  
 The cab can be manually rotated and locked into that position. A tow hook is attached to the rear of the excavator.

I am including a serial cable and a CD with the software to reprogram the excavator.  To program the excavator you must use a Windows XP or older computer with a native serial port.   USB to serial port convertors will not work for programming a Picaxe.  There is also a backup copy of the default program on the excavator with 6 modes of operation so you always get the excavator back to how you got it.  Included on the CD is dozens of PICAXE programming manuals to teach you the basics of PICAXE microcomputer programming.  I also include a cheat sheet with the programming commands for each motor in the excavator.   Lastly I include my project booklet with construction photos, service hints and wiring diagrams.  

Listing includes:  RC excavator, RC hand-held controller, battery and charger, Picaxe serial cable and a CD with the software and programming manuals.    A printed manual with construction photos, quick start guide and operational modes chart are included.
