    Very cool.

    ^_^
    The ticks/ wraps wasn’t planed and was caused by that all the servos is moving at the same speed and the legs do not start to lift from the ground before the coxa reach its end position. I have now added that the speed is calculated dependent on distance it have moved and the time it have on it to move to its goal position and as you can see in the video below resulting in much smoother motion when waking.

    The hexapod can now turn around its own y axis or circulate a point. A big thanks Zenta and his Phoenix Excel Program that I have used to check my calculations and done reverse engineering on. I have some minor problem when chancing direction and need to come up with a strategy for that but fist I am going to implement to read sensor data from the AX-S1.

    evilMacina: Very cool, Love the motions,Tempted to build one, but have to many projects at present.
    People yearn after this robotic dream, but you can't strip your life of all meaning, emotion and feeling and expect to function.

    I have released the code for my hexapod under the MIT License and it can be downloaded from gitHub http://github.com/evilmachina/theMachine/tree/master
