    Making some progress

    Head is coming along. There is a HS-645mg for pan in there and is the main attachment point to the legs. Trendnet cam is in there and wired up, as well an SSC-32/BB2 in the rear section. Still need a gun hopper for the Defender. Finally, camo paintjob for the whole shebang. Haven't worked out any gaits yet, just the high kick for proof of concept. Have to remount and align the servos to neutral and should have some video of movement tomorrow, hopefully. That cockpit window is just a cardstock form I made. It will be replaced by a vacuum-formed .020" clear PETG. Does anybody know of a service that will do one piece orders? Worst comes to worst, I'll make a vacuum-former myself.

    Jeeeze that thing is beautiful! I love your attention to detail with the canopy. How well is it walking now?

    edit: Are you using 645's for all servos?

    645's in the ankle and hip joint. 5990's in the knee and thigh.

    Re: Meet CLYDE

    Made up the camera window tonight. Glued and zip-tied everything possible. I covered the bottom of the Trendnet power PCB with GB Liquid Electrical tape. Great stuff, and it dries fast too!



    And isn't that cute? Yes, I was forced to work in the kids' bathroom, lol!

    Yup, sure is. I used a 9" cake pan and hand held heat gun to form my canopy window for the Trendnet camera to see through.
