Open boxes and letting them air a bit.

Haha, I still don't know what the ez-robot scent is. I keep hearing about it but I've never seen a new box before. Hopefully soon!

Do not forget to align your servos in the Learn section:D

Soon I will have a servo Fine Tune Calibration tutorial as well.

@jdebay... In addition to DJ's suggestion... maybe you could do a video of the whole process from assembly, calibration to connection to help Nomad out?.....

@DJ Sures it smells like new plastic/rubber.
The smell is like the 1st Abs 3d print...

All 12 survos 90 degree done. I didn't have to adjust any them.

@Richard R I am taking lot's of pictures. Still's of six. Video for jd.

Great feedback! Thanks for letting me know

@DJ Sures

I have found it easier to clip the two servos first, then leg, and to the body.

The survos are hard to clip to each other, need to do a lot of wiggling back forth.
So they are connected correctly.

p.s. stop to eat something.

I will be doing that. Will be testing the EZ-B's for connectivity and Sound. Also testing all of the servos, sensors, cameras, batteries and Chargers. I will also be updating all of the laptop/tablets and making sure that everything is working on them correctly. I will be assigning a laptop/table and robot to each team and setting these tablet/laptops up to connect to a specific EZ-B to try to prevent issues. We will later go to Client mode after the students understand what is happening and what their limitations are in AP mode.

Thats 5 EZ-B's and laptop/tablets to get setup by monday along with a very busy schedule over the next 4 days. All good and this will be the fun part of the next 4 days.

I just want to verify there are no issues prior to class on Monday.
#54  
we will be here, if you need us.

teamview works great. j

I've been doing this type of stuff for about 25 years and have 2 ez-b V4's already. Thanks for the offer but I think I will be okay.

@d.cochran That is awesome news! Can't wait to see the videos! :)
