Everybody, Meet "phil":)


Thanks Josh Grin Its mostly standard generic futaba s3003's, 5v 42oz in. The ankle toe up/down servos are supposed to be hi torque, don't know the specs on those. I really need to run external power to the servos with a 6v regulator to get a lil more torque. I need that power to get it to walk right lol


I've almost got the walking thing figured out. This takes lots of balance and strong servos...neither of which I have lol Grin I'm gonna replace all the servos with Hitec HS-430BH Standard Deluxe BB HV servos. 70 oz in, and running straight off the battery, no regulator. That's about a 30% increase in torque Grin


He is walking better than my first humanoid.
I am sure with the new servos and some work you will get him walking all over the place.


Hooray for speech recognition Grin

I set up some simple commands, added two servospeed init scripts(move fast, move slow), then added an auto connect script. So yeah, from power up to shutdown, my mouse is officially just for show lol


Cool work!


Thanks mcsdaverGrin Very small update: if anyone is interested, I posted my current project file on the cloud under Examples.


I love your robot man. Your making great progress. I will watch closely as you work with phil. Maybe ill do a bipedal robot in 2013 but right now im enjoying yours. Keep those posts and videos coming kenny. Its gonna be a long winter. Smile


Hi, let me just say your work is awesome! Now, when operating your Philo on the EZB, does it require a gyro sensor to maintain its stability while standing? I'm creating a humanoid of custom creation, and i just wanted to know. Smile


@RoboticsMaster I am building a humanoid also. I hope to see your build as soon as you start posting pics and videos.


Nope, no gyros, just big feet and lots of fine tuningSmile That works ok on my bot because its not very big. It would be awesome to add a 3axis accelerometer, just need to make sure its analog for fast reaction times. Well, that and I'm out of digital ports lol
