    Hey jwatte,

    No, currently I do not have any FSR installed or have any current sensing resistors on any of the servo lines. I think if the servos were swapped out with something like the Robotis'...

    Re: Mini Custom Octapod Project

    I finally got my port coded and added some conditional flags (ARC32_flag con 1) so I can branch my code, so that the code still can be backwardly compatible with the SSC-32.

    What actuators is this bot using? Is it the -28 series of Robotis actuators? I've been eyeing the -28s, -64, and the 106+(I think I need to take a loan to build a bot out of the 106+ :tongue:).
