    Ahh, I see you have the prop board mounted now and the controls seem to be working well. What is your next step? (sorry. Bad pun, I know)

    haha I liked the pun. Well I'm @home sick so today I want to get him walking (not perfectly), then I'm gonna add a ping sensor on a panning servo and once I have something vaguely smooth and workable, Im gonna start upgrading the servos and creating a Biped Pete.

    ...But then, he begins trying to kick invisible water bottles???



    So I was getting frustated. . in the end I think he decided to call it a night.

    Re: Propeller Biped

    You know I've heard nothing but bad comments about the propeller but seeing this project proves that they know nothing about the propeller and i'll be using this chip too anyrate keep up the good work

    I think the Prop is junk. I somehow doubt you'll use that to "prove [i] know nothing about the propeller" ...

    Re: Propeller Biped

    I'm waiting for the parts to create a Tamiya to Barrel Plug adapter cus I can't power more than a few servos at once off a plastic battery case.

    Personally I'm enjoying the project and learning spin but I'm not the one to say how good the propeller is as I have no point of reference other than the basic stamp.

    Thank you tho Sigma x for your + Rep and kind words.

    No I didn't mean it like that Adrenalynn!
    I just ment that it seems easier to work with

    Re: Propeller Biped




    OK So progress wise, I had to order a few parts and make a tamiya to barrel adapter which worked out OK for my first ever bit of real soldering, but then I dropped my robot! .. from about 1 cm in the air on his left ankle.. and it went limp....

    SO I ordered a new one and waited... then had to move living conditions and work, life etc.. got my new ankle servo and while I was changing it (I didn't unplug the battery pack) smoke started coming from everywhere! (.. well the battery and circuit board).. I'd been leaning on the barrel head that was already quit delicately soldered together and I'm guessing I pushed positive and negatives together or something but the power pack plastic is well melted. I ripped the pack out and I'm sure I saved the PRCB.. Anyway I've ordered another pack and I'm waiting... again..

    What's that saying?.. Less haste more speed



    You can see I've mounted the ping sensor too.. he now resembles that BRAT configuration I first fell in love with.

    And never underestimate the value of heat shrink tubing! I speak from experience.

    Looks great, though!
