    Re: Christmas present

    That Zumo is a cute kit... I custom built something similar several years back. It would make a nice little table top rover even if he is not into mini-sumo. That's how I used mine.

    I don't have that problem. The Forest Moon code reads the register.

    There is no doubt that a SES biped could compete. The servos and brackets are not the issue. It's a bit of a shame that Lynxmotion-based bots have not been better represented at MW.

    That's a stretch. The AX-12 is rated for twice the voltage and has almost twice the torque. Not to mention the many programmable features.
