Polycarbonate vs UHMW For Building Robots

Excerpt (Click On Link For Full Article)

Morbo is a biped robot I designed and built to experiment with. It is intended to be a continually developing platform to test various methods of locomotion and processing. Although there are currently several biped kits on the hobby market, I’ve decided to ” roll my own ” so to speak. I love machining and building, and I have a few things I haven’t seen before that I’d like to try.

The above picture shows Morbo in almost the current configuration. Missing in that picture is the wireless link. The current incarnation consists of:

6 Hitec 475HB Servos

PicoPic Serial Servo controller

Sparkfun Electronics Blue SMiRF Bluetooth radio

Custom build aluminum chassis

1500Mah 7.4v LiPo Battery

Medusa Electronics 3.5A BEC
