it could also be what is going in hong kong!

j
#10  
Yea, that is from the Holiday and my point that I have made in many posts. We are being affected by things outside of anyones control. Blaming EZ robot and DHL was a joke.
#11  
Well, the day was chosen by these people because it is the day chosen to celebrate the beginning of communism in China. They are blocking a major roads in Hong Kong which is probably the roads DHL takes to get these packages to Hong Kong. This has spread to outlying areas around Hong Kong partially because people don't have to work because of the holiday.

It took one day for my last order to get this far. This order has taken 4 days to make it through customs in Hong Kong.

Hopefully they are on a plane but I think they are still in China as I haven't seen Departed Facility in HONG KONG - HONG KONG yet.

All good. It will happen soon, I'm sure.

@d.cochran
@jdebay

The Chinese holiday National Day is 3 days long (started Oct 1) and most Chinese companies shut down. Everything should be back up to full speed by Tuesday:) Some workers take a week off, but DHL is pretty large so we assume they will have enough workers back and get your order moving soon!
#18  
Sounds good. I assumed that is the cause of the delay. Im not worried at all about it but thank you for the information.

dhl flies to Ohio from China, (non-stop).

that is how the last 2 shipments from ez-robot this year came.

Status update for mine...

Worn out from protesting the proposed election process in Hong Kong. Got on a plane bound for US. Sleeping quietly in the cargo hold of a 747.

This should put them to the school on Thursday or Friday. There is a ground breaking for the new elementary school on Thursday and Home Coming on Friday. I dont know if the delivery person will be able to make it to the school door to drop off the package either of those two days, if I need to, I will meet him/her on the street to get these boxes.

I just hope JD doesn't get a big head thinking that all of these people are here for their arrival.

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.
#42  
@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?.....
#43  
@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
#45  
@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.

Great!

check servos...

Happy Building!

And thanks for all your help too.

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! :)
