Just starting a thread and will be editing as I get things ready.

Parallax Propeller QSX-24 Controller(My own design)

I have ported over some code to the Propeller platform along with a lot of tweaking and with the help of several objects from the object library.

It's a software package that controls a hexapod. It can technically be modifed to run any X legged robot. Each leg has to have 3DOF.
And any size as long as you change the basic body and leg dimensions.

It's a Inverse Kinematic solution and it computes everything on the run. Currently all the math is done in spin.

I did make a custom board(QSX-24 doc sheet will be posted soon) for this project and I use them in all my robots.

Below are some pics & code. The hexapod was used in the demo video.


**I have a small limited amount of boards left. I can solder some up, so if your interested they are $42.00 shipped.**
