Cant find a tutorial !

Hi everyone,

Recently I came across some very good hexapods designed with 6,8 and even 12 servos.I have a duemilanove and would like to build one.

But unfortunately I have not ventured into this domain and my search for a step by step tutorial on google(on multilegged critters like hexapod) and instructables proved futile.Any Links that can help me get started or rather a complete tutorial link would be awesome.Thanks!

Chopstick Junior is just 4-legged but I wrote quite a detailed how-to-build. http://letsmakerobots.com/node/29708

There are many more just find them and ask the guys who built them.

4 legs= 8 servos, right?

Yes Max, but you also could use a 3 DOF leg with 3 servos each... Chopstick Junior is only 2 DOF.

there are a number of multi servo hexapods on this site. I am sure some of the posts are fairly complete with respect to construction and code.
