    Re: Robert the Robot!

    Ooh! Ooh!
    It's time to unveil Robert 1.2!
    This new version of Robert has a new arm design. It's very simple and good-looking. I think it's much better than the older version. This arm orientation makes the arm longer too.
    Here's a video. Oh, and in the video, at the end, there's a supercharge section. It wasn't really intended but I thought it was cool how a move could make others following it faster. I called it supercharged. Anyway, I figured out that it was caused by an unclosed highspeed seton. Also, the move itself was coincidental too: It was supposed to be a clap.

    Hope you guys like it. I still have that "I build Robots" sticker fro RoboGames on Robert. I don't think i'll come off easily. oh well.

    Re: Robert the Robot!

    yay!
    Robert's getting a new head! His original robonova head was too small for his body so...
    I designed another one in Sketchup. I hope to print it out soon.
    The last picture's with a servo

    The changes to the arms look really good.

    As for the head, how were you planning to cut that one out?

    Re: Robert the Robot!

    So the planned plastic head is put off for a while due to certain reasons...
    Meanwhile, I still wanted a moving head so I made a makeshift head. It's just an upside-down servo (kinda like the khr robots) The face is narrow as a stick but oh well... it still moves.

    Re: Robert the Robot!

    Yes, That gave me an idea!
    Maybe I'll make him a face or just a bigger head to attach to the servo with cardboard or something.
    Thanks Nagmier! hehe

    Re: Robert the Robot!

    Any robonova owners - what screws are the ones used to attach to the horn? (the small ones)
    I can't find the exact title of "PH/T-2 2x4" anywhere. The online shops have too many varieties. Browse: Supercheap Auto Catalogue and Big W Catalogue on Catalogue AU.
    help.. I'm running out of screws and am to the point where I have to take away some from the other servos..

    Those are a 2mm diameter X 4mm long self tapping pan head screw. You should be able to get some at about any decent hobby store. They don't have to be Hitec's, just the right size.

    Try www.microfasteners.com. This is where I get my extra screws.
