    I don't think "best" and "cheap" go together when you are talking about robots. If you get something cheap, that is pretty much what you are going to have. You are talking a minimum of at least $500.00 for a small humanoid robot that you can expand later with additional brackets and servos.

    Without a doubt the Robonova is the best robot for beginners. It is very versatile and easy to understand and best of all a large support community.

    Re: humanoid beginner

    hy thanks for answers.
    Small humanoid robot that I can expand later with additional brackets and servos could be Robophilo or is a robot that can┤t expand?
    I want one humanoid that don┤t cost much, and i can expand in future.
    Some propose one for a beginner.
    Thanks for propose of robo-nova but is much money for me, is 616.49 EUR.
    Robo-nova could be expand?
    With the money of robo-nova i prefer theKHR-2HV
    Humanoid Robot Kit
    have more experience.http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store...o-KHR-2HV.aspx

    I think in Robophilo becuse cost only 259.58 EUR, but i don┤t have any experience.


    Thanks

    The RoboPhilo uses standard form factor servos, so you can upgrade your servos all you want

    Keep in mind though that it is an entry level humanoid, hence the cost. It's a nice robot and has cool software, but if you're looking for quality, you'll need to spend a bit more.

    Re: humanoid beginner

    I wouldn't say that one humanoid is better than another. They are all have their pros and cons. Honestly, I haven't seen a humanoid that I haven't liked yet.

    The two sites you listed can give you a far better idea on what the pros/cons are with each of the humanoids out. I'd spend some time reviewing all of the info on both those sites

    Hey Raul-

    It comes down to what you want to do with your bot. Philo is a good bot to start with because of the price and the fact that you can expand and easily change servos (SDK is also available for add-ons), you will not be competing with the 2HV, Nova or Bioloid, but you will be learning. If you know this bot thing is something you will be doing for a while, then should narrow down what you want out of your bot i.e. competing 2HV or Nova, flexablity Bioloid.
