Stuff to do..
Think I've finally figured out Jaimies Spider Tank walking mechanism, pretty cool. You have to picture the legs with your head tilted sideways at a 45 degree angle, while scratching your head and rubbing your stomach. I wonder if this is how Jaimie figured out the walking mechanism to start with. Think I'd like to build a small model with some hobby plastic bits to verify thoughts. May get a few model airplane hinges to build with, or just make some small hinge joints some way.
Have a model I'd thought to enter to the video contest, but let that pass. Still might be a cute bot if it works, a hoppy kind that could be strange. Made of wood and paper and servos and batteries and an Arduino, plus a little flash.
And bits of mech stuff sitting here, waiting for servos.
And the cool toys waiting at Dagu to buy. I wanna arm and some solar cells and some sensor brackets and .. Too many toys, too little cash/time/???
Outdoor bot rebuild? Before it's even been tried? Well, maybe at least run it some, before redoing it, see what it does. Just think I shoulda went with skid steer instead of differential trike. We'll see.
Til next time, same bot channel.
