Let's Make Robots!

I need old Antennas, or something used for drum sticks, for a drumming robot :).

Ill send PayPal money, what I do have is two GM2 224:1 Offset Shaft motors that I can trade, what I need is two rods for the front two GM10's and one for the bass drum. Any reccommendations would be lovely. I would rather it be hollow and bendable. If youve seen Fritsl's YDM, then you would know what I am talking about!

How big is the difference between the GM2, 3, 8 and 9s?

I know the higher gear ratio the faster, but what is the difference between the fours, and is it that large?

 

The solarbiotics if that makes a difference

Oh and never mind the offset ones, the difference is obvious there.

header pins question

Does picaxe 28x1 microcontroller board use 0.60 - 1.0mm header pins (round or square).

How to connect the SRF05 to Arduino Decimialia?

How do I do this? Ive seen things for the PING but not the SRF05

Question concerning Wheels

Are these geared motors holes

http://www.hobbyengineering.com/H1415.html

the same size as these

http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=423

 

it may seem like an odd question, but I bought two of those right shaft geared motors and I have yet to find an axel that fits inside of it (no i didnt buy the wheels that came with it)

 

In other words would those sparkfun wheels be able to mount on the hobby engineering motors(same size?)

Picaxe Microcontroller

I want an Arduino Decimilia

Difficulty connecting Srf05 to Picaxe28x1

OK, at first I tried using the PCB connector thing (white, thick, multiple wire wires) and it got annoying because I wasnt certain which clip would be for which wire, and now I am facing even more diffilcuties. I took apart a computer recently to find spare parts, and I found a couple 4 pin female ports, I conected a couple wires to it, and isolated the one at the end, a yellow one. Now, I dont know If I did it right, but I attempted to solder the one wire to the actual board, was I supposed to?

Source Code Request: Picaxe 28x1 Making the SRF05 follow movement/objects?

I would like to see if my sonar SRF05 actually works, so using the "default" setup from the "Start Here" robot, can anyone post a code that makes the Sonar, attatched to the Servo follow movement, say a hand or something?

OK, I got my Picaxe to work, now the servo wont? :D

My computer recognizes it and everythings gogo, but i sent the servo 0, 150 to mypicaxe correctly, and it gives it a slight yank, but randomly and very tiny yank, i think a wire in it might be faulty cause if i move the wires it would randomly yank. Whenever i press F5 as well, it does the yank, help please?

Picaxe not recognized by my computer?

I ran the driver on the CD, I didnt check the website though, is there a new driver on it? If so could someone link to it, and how do I know if the picaxe controller works if I dont plug it into my computer?
