"archetype" Finally Complete

 
#1

Well it's never really complete right?

Here's my first (whew!) fully working droid, "Archetype". As you can see its somewhat EZbit "friendly" so room for expansion is possible.

I hope you all like my style...back to the old way of doing things, without 3D printers. Having said that, I have to credit Richard R for the ezbits.

Enjoy, and comments and suggestions are appreciated!

As of right now, I can't use everything at the same time, since it causes the ezb to brown out. I have also done the super cap fix, although it helps, I still only have a 2 amp voltage regulator running everything. That's only temporary of course. Once I get a higher amp battery I'll post some videos.

@doom, man... you did it again - i really dig that guy. Like the pic of him looking down.

Those elbow servos - if you cut slits in the back of the white L bracket, it will vent heat when it's lifting heavier weight to last longer. We find that a custom build with those servos, jeremie cuts slits in with a dremel so they don't get as hot when holding heavy stuff.

Thanks man! I gotta say these servos are so awesome, and I've tried SO many of them.

I'll try your suggestion-but yes I just don't have enough amps on my voltage regulator.
