Added video. I know it's motion stinks.. But it is work in progress, I only made / show you the video because I find it interesting myself to sit and figure stuff out by watching it :)
Well at leat this time I have managed to make something that jumps.. Like crazy :D And that is the problem, it goes nuts!
It's late & dark now, so I cannot get it on video.. outside.. and trust me; one does not want to attempt it inside :)
- The "pins" are fiber glass, very springey, I found out the Polymorph is quite absorbing / dull as spring compared.
- At the tips it has steel reinforcement, as it was getting shorter and shorter legs :)
- The reason for the long stick in front is that I experiment with moving the battery / weight.
- The motor is from an old RC,I have locked the axle, no dif drive.
More to come, and then better images, and video not made with my cell.. I guess :)
I'd REALLY whish I had a high speed camera, that would make analyzing the jumping SO much easier. This is too big and crazy jumping for any strobe-analyzing.
