    Re: how to start out?

    OK...so as a complete noob you have some choices to make. How involved do you want to get? Are you a tinkerer or just someone who wants a cool bit of gear?

    In reality, I would suggest either the robobuilder or bioloid kits. The software is pretty intuitive with both, and the kits are versatile enough that you will be able to choose a different route down the line if you choose.

    Before you run off though...what is it that attracts you to a humanoid? Why not start out with something more basic like a wheeled robot?

    well the reason why humanoids is well is guess they are awesome basically and my interests lay in that field of robotics, and for the first questions i would like to make something that i can tinker around with and i want to get involved so deep that i could actualy build a fully functional AT01 or a hexapod

    I suggest bioloid due to its flexibility. You could start off with a bioloid biped, turn it into a quad, and play with gaits before you ever even look at a hex.

    Nope! These aren't PWM servos - they're serial.

    There's just no way one would get a biped walking by trying to control its servos with a twelve channel R/C control, unless said person grew at least an extra five sets of hands and those twelve channels were each on separate sticks.
