Small Compact - Quad Robot - 1

so i started getting inspriated by some robots i saw on youtube! shortly after i started makeing my own quadropod

i wanted it to be as small as possible, and i now have a robot as high as a match-box!!

i fixed my code problem!

i'm almost finished right now

enjoy the videos

      ITS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!!^

and ohh..    it's going to need a new name..      (SC-QR-1.8)

please comment and rate!

Awesome very agile! How did you connect the leg joints?

Awesome this little guy. Looks so simple and is doing such nice moves.

can you please post the code!

 Very unique and impressive design. Oh how I miss the machine shop.
looks completely bad ass my next project is going to be a walker, just ordered some micro servos. your leg design has given me a great deal of inspiration. im thinking of making mine out of polymorph and controling it with a RBBB aruino. i want it to look like an insect or crab type thing with an exosecelaton and point bits :P
How are the servos held in? Glue? Could you post any more images of the legs they look great, i was just looking to see how you had mounted them.
glue

Sorry about the weight question. It clearly says 361 grams in the description.

Hope I manage to keep mine as light as yours :)

Great job!!

I'm planning a similar project, also using micro servos (hxt900), and I must say your robot is a great inspiration. One of the best of it's kind I've seen, and I've been spending a lot of hour on the web looking for similar robots. You've managed to make it walk very nicely (smooth and fast) with just 2 servos per leg. Thumbs up!!

If you could post the code I'd very much like to study the walking routines. Though I never touched picaxe I should be able to make something of it...

And another question: How much does it weigh? Just curious as to how much these servos can pull..

I've just received my servo they are very tiny :)

 

This is the first time i use a picaxe 28x1 and i already have a problem!

I try to move to servos and it don't work....

 

Here is my source code

servo 2,75

servopos 2,75

pause 2000

servopos 2,150

pause 2000

servopos 2,225

pause 2000

 

servo 4,75

servopos 4,75

pause 2000

servopos 4,150

pause 2000

servopos 4,225

pause 2000

 

 

If i execute this the first servo move and after that the second servo only goes on the start position and stop....

 

I've tried another code, this one:

servo 4,75

servopos 4,75

pause 2000

servopos 4,150

pause 2000

servopos 4,225

pause 2000

 

servo 2,75

servopos 2,75

pause 2000

servopos 2,150

pause 2000

servopos 2,225

pause 2000

 

In this case both servos are working except that when it switch to servo 4 to servo 2, the servo 4 goes back to 75....

 

I only use one power source, if someone can help me, this thing drive me crazy...

 

Best regards.
