    Re: Foam Dart Turret PC Control

    I think I got you. Was hoping I can somehow keep to higher level programming model. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Hexapod broken?

    Kurt, I can do all of the above. But I'm just happy for now that the pod is working :) There're a ton of things to do and the possibilities are endless - so I'll probably just stay put. Thanks again!...

    Re: Hexapod broken?

    Well... it was wiring.

    Went on the servos 1 by 1. The ones with bad wiring seems to have low power. The servos can be pushed to move with power running. The good ones are really firm and require...

    Re: Foam Dart Turret PC Control

    Prefer C# but will do Java, python as a last resort.

    I never communicated directly on serial port yet, but don't think it'll be a problem. What message should I send? Where's the spec for the...

    Thanks Kurt, I'll give it a try - I think your assessment is correct. Some of the cables are a tiny bit short...

    Foam Dart Turret PC Control

    Anyone has some sample how to pull the trigger on the foam dart kit via USB?

    There's plenty of Arbotix demo code to control servos and send packets, but I'm not seeing much on the...

    Strange it started working after I forcefully moved the hind 2 legs because I noticed they were limping, esp the right one.

    Re: Hexapod broken?

    All servos IDed correctly. Passed the wiggle test (hexapod test). Had to remove all servo cables from hub and board 1 by 1, and reseat them, but that was it.

    So I loaded it with the commander...

    Re: Hexapod broken?

    Kurt,

    Thanks for responding. Yes it's the Trossen phantom 3.

    Why would it switch to servo 1 and then back to the correct ID though? Occasionally, after leaving the robot alone for hours...

    Hexapod broken?

    I've got my hexapod running, it's walking, crawling, controlled by the remote.

    Lately however, it'd barely crawl a step and then it stops in its track.

    Running the test program:

    System...

    Re: Mounting a turret on the Quadruped

    That robot looks really good :)

    Yeah I might go with the hexapod. I thought I was gonna save a couple big ones - but better spend a bit more than regret it later I suppose.

    Re: Mounting a turret on the Quadruped

    I am not keen on programming at the arbotix level to be frank.

    I was thinking to plug the thing into an onboard windows tablet via USB secured with Velcro strap. And program at a higher level...

    Mounting 2 Cameras for Stereo Vision

    Hi, I'm new to robotics - but fairly excited to start - just wanna get an idea if I can mount 2 of the MS Cameras on a phantom x turret.

    I am not sure what kind of brackets come with it, or if I...
