Dagu Hexapod

I have reciently purchased the Dagu Hexapod and Spider controller from Sparkfun. When attaching the cables to/from the servos I have no idea as to which is #1 , #2 etc. I guess there is no front but the order should be important.

The servos should be connected to the pins mentioned in your code. Or, you must note where you plugged things in and change the code to match.

The good news is most programmers will use terms that make sense. The pins might be called, "right_hip" or "L_Knee" etc. The bottom line, is that what is within your code has to match real life.

I have 11 out of 12 servos moving. The 12th has a moving PWM input and does nothing when plugged into one of the working ports. Does anyone have a source for these servos, DG Servo 9g, or compatible?



I ordered 6 HTX900 servos and am taking the dead one to work. We have a lab with lots of big magnifiers
that MIGHT enable my old eyes to see!!! Or one of the lab techs might take pitty and open it for me.
