looks very interesting your build, how are finding it?


Hi Steve.BigGrin

It has been a VERY difficult build at times...as I have completed one whole arm...just to find that the servo in the elbow joint is not working and I have had to strip down 2 hours work and start again!!Cursing

I had the same problem with one of the legs and the neck servo where Robi tilts his head forward.

Many many hours have gone into this...and I am a very patient person, but the frustration built up at times, but it is surprising how much patience you have when you don't think you have the resolve.LOL LOL LOL

I am nearly on the home straight now...so I feel it has all been worth it!!Love Love Love

Thanks for looking in!!ThumpUp

Good to see this coming along Cool

Be mindful of how the wires are routed as a few builders have found them pulling loose from the end socket as a result of becoming taught during his movemnent cycle.

Hi TomickBigGrin

I have found this out already!LOL LOL LOL

I twisted the head around more than 90 degrees...and forgot if I turned Robi's head left or right...so I twisted 360 degrees.

The result was a non functioning neck servoCursing Cursing

When I took the neck off again..they were all twisted around each other!!

I reset the connectors...and now everything seems fine.

Fingers crossed!!

Thanks for looking in!!ThumpUp

Thanks guys!!ThumpUp ThumpUp

I had a little wobble with the full body test.

Robi's Neck and Hip Servo were not moving...so I checked the back Servo and everything seemed ok,Blink Blink but I reconnected the two servo cables again anyway...and hey presto, everything is now working fine!!

I am not sure what I did...but it was on a wing and a prayerLOL LOL LOL LOL

Everything works great now!!!

Thanks for loooking in guys,very much appreciated!!
