Help with JD,
JD is calibrated, fine tuned, latest EZ Builder, and example.
When he is connected, the int. starts calibrate frame, which looks ok. (all 90 degrees) see pic.
The shoulders servos appear to be correct (pointing up as shown in lesson).
I have read posts offset jd. When I manually lift my jd arms they only rise slightly above chest? (I think this is wrong)
Do I need to offset servos that much when they are straight (as lessons shows) up during calibrate?
When I hit stop (stand) His arms point back? He will walk, but back balanced. See pic.
Checked wiring several times?
Has any one else received a JD recently?
Maybe I am still doing something wrong?

That is what I thought, but I could not understand why thy pointed up during 90 degree set.
I I will remove the shoulder rotation servo arms, set servos to 90, and reconnect so they still point up.
Thank you Rich
Your JDs arms are not fitted correctly.
This is how the arms are shown in the tutorial pages...
In order to calibrate the servos by creating a Fine Tune profile, the servos need to be installed in the shoulders like the picture above.
Do not worry, it's a really easy fix Simply put the JD in calibrate mode and disconnect the arms at the shoulder. Then, slide them back in the correct position. Voila!
I love EZ Robot and all the great community!
My wife will be happy because my little man can stand up, from sitting!
Did I say I love EZ Robot.
Now I have to help my grandson with his claws.
Wait, your grandson has claws? You should see a doctor about that
the walk is awesome
The 5 other grandsons are younger, but they like robotics.
Thanks, I like looking @ all your robots.
