Awesome bot! I may build one soon.

Nice simple design, awesome results! I need to build one of these!

Totally borrowing this design for a hexapod of mine!

Keeping it simple (mechanically) and classy (looks great)!

Wow! Another cool 3servo hexapod! The appearance is really nice!

this looks awesome!!!

thanks :) 

Cool little spider. I like that cable tie art. It's not just looking clean but also gives the spider a kind of texture.

Oh yeah, no LMR logo in the video...you may pray that the counsil will not banish you as birdmun mentioned ;-)

yes i think so too, so it doesn´t look like standard cable. I´ve put some filament into it to form the structure of the cable. 

That's a neat hexapod.  I did something similar a while back.  It developed quite a lot from there but then I 'borrowed' the servos from it.  I'll have to pick it up again someday.

On mine, I found the best configuration was for the centre feet to grip and the front and back feet to slide. Give the centre feet a bit more grip and you'll find it moves a lot more quickly.
