More RADbots. I too have a RADbot. Don't know if there's a difference between versions but mine is a 1.0 (had the complete bot so I looked up the version). Seems the same, hi/low gear switch and power switch underneath the back. Looks like we have a sub-group forming. :-)

Kewl! Just snagged one from an ebay auction myself. Interested in seeing your progress.

What are you using for the base on this monster? I just noticed the RAD 2.0 reference! OOPS! Looks good!  Post new pictures as they are available please!

Very neat. Are those the original RAD 2.0 motors, or did you replace them?

The motors and gearing are in great shape so for now I'm keeping them. I have two modified servos that could fit no problem. It also has the built in high and low gear switch which I kinda like. I have an old net book that was collecting dust and am making a use for it, it will be mounted facing backward on the back deck, I have even powered the whole deal with USB power for fun and the base can take the weight well. Working on arms that will mount under the top front deck with a rotating dome on top. The ultrasonic sensor will be mounted on the dome along with a webcam making use of the USB onboard. Waiting on parts as usual.

Do you know what the motor ratings are? How are you powering them?

if i remember rightly you can power six standard hobby servos from one USB port without any trouble (collage final year projrct) so you should be fine with a couple basic arms. the only thing i would worry about is the battery life of the netbook
