The Blue Thunder Project: New concept art!

 This is Blue Thunder. He has nearly every major degree of freedom that a human has, using 28 servos.

That's What I'm Building. I need input on Batteries, that need to run 26 High torque servos and 2 Micro servos, are rechargable, light, and get a runtime of over 10 min.

I also need advice whether I should get a Sieg X2 Mini Mill, and convert it to CNC, or Big Blue Saw the parts I need...

This is what All This Is For

Program objectives coming soon...Sorry for the messy doodle I did in Math Class...

one will have model rocket engines strapped to it. just for fun, i will launch it with an 08m, just to see.

the other 6 will become cheap bases for my xmos robots

You are attaching rocket motors to mr basics and launching them with a picaxe...

1. Do your parents know your intentions?

2. Do your parents know they are wasting their money?

3. Just for fun? Wasting money for fun? If you wanna waste money just burn it or give it to me. Either way.

Self Funded. I too have a job.

THey have heard of Blue Thunder, but not super-basic.

Super Basic is just for fun, and a desperate attempt at the mr basic competition.

Sorry, I misunderstood your post x.x I thought you were propelling all 7 of them with engines! my bad :p

Use LiPo. They are light, have high capacity. Downside(s) they are not cheap and you need special chargers. looks interesting. Good luck!
