OddBot, Claudia, DAGU... they just rock...

Jeez, i ordered from DAGU 20 mini servos one week ago... and i already received them! That's even faster than most of the sellers in my own country!

So thanks to them, and thanks to OddBot who took the time to think about my special needs and perfectly fulfilled them, saving me a lot of time (and money!)


Here on LMR we are really lucky to have them all... :D

Parts List (Oddbot or Claudia, Help please)

8 Mr. Basics

14 Micro servos

1 set of sensor mounts

1 Magnifier thingy

what would be the total price, with shipping, for all this. what is the benefit of the new Mr. Basic Board?

A word to anyone in the XMOS or Mr. Basic Challenges:

Fear me!

mr Dozer

im redoing brainy basic into a much better robot.
ive looked and learnt with robotics this summer, ditching the picaxe which i didnt get on with for the arduino.
basically he will be a bulldozer but with attitude.

Basic progress

Here are a map of parts in the Mr. Basic kit

Mr.Basic manual page 3
So far I've dicharded:
The wheels (13&14)
The bumper (17)
The battery holder (18)
The front axle shift metal fixer (20)

and I've mutilated/hacksawed/drilled:
an Axis joint device (5)
both Front axles(7)
The Chasis (11)
one Decelerated pinion chassis (12)

And I know some of the copper tubes (22&23&24) have a dark future ahead dating my trusted hacksaw.

I decided to build a pan/tilt mount using the DAGU parts I recently received. I did have a little trouble, but overall I'm pleased with the result.  You may notice … Read more

Mounting brackets for SRF05 (Open letter to Jack / DAGU)

SRF05 is still IMHO the best low-cost distance sensor.

And there is still no good / smart / fancy / easy / pro / cheap way to mount the darn thing on a turning neck / servo / front..

We now have a good contact to DAGU from China who makes cheap and cool robot-stuff.

So.. I thought.. Why don't we make some suggestions to how we would like such a mounting thing(ey) shaped and made? And then ask Jack from DAGU if he could start producing it?

This was my idea.. and now I need your help and ideas towards the design :)
