    New 3DOF Quad Mech Viki

    Since my mech for last year was a nearly complete failure, I'm starting entirely over. The legs are just bioloid brackets and ax-12s. I made the chassis out of two squares of noryl I got from the machine shop I intern at. This seems to be working well, but I hope to switch to better legs as soon as I can get phantomX legs parts. The turret is using the D-Link camera from last year and a gun donated by Gary (really, thanks ) that was used on Bheka. The hopper was really the main challenge I've had so far as the BBs have a tendency to clog. A servo mounted so as to mix the BBs seems to solve the problem, but the gun is still unreliable since BBs don't seem to fall into the slot quickly enough before it closes. The turret is looking to be a little too big and I'm not sure the ax-12 I am for tilting the turret will hold it. I will have to test that asap.

    It's not pretty, but here are some pictures.

    Yes. I am aware. I keep procrastinating on doing that. Sorry. Hopefully will do today or tomorrow.
