    Cool...Seams very Hegataka esq. I hope you don't run into similar problems...

    I can't wait to see this thing walking around. Why couldn't you just use the bioloid controller by the way.

    In anycase...cool.

    As long as you keep the payload down, you're ok. Microraptor, and the original Hags all walk.. they just don't have a huge payload.

    Also make sure you have your legs aligned correctly to best distribute your weight. The posture you have in those pictures may look cool, but its unnecessarily stressing your motors. Ideally you want to maintain something similar to this:

    Personally, I'm finding that Issy is overheating servos after about 12-15 minutes -- and he's a quad. The shutoff temp might be a little low, but I really hate to raise it all, i really don't want to burn up $40 servos....

    I never thought I could over weight bioloid servo's THAT easy Fregs what camera did you use and how much did it weigh? Can you also tell me what type batteries you're using I still think I can pull off the weight limit but i'll need expert help.
