Help With Wowwee Roboquad

Hi, I just got the RoboQuad from ebay and I started to follow the video on connecting the EZ-B to it, but when I opened the head it looks different then the video. The board says G7303-3A. Can someone help in wiring it up?

I admit I was quite frustrated at first but that quickly passed as I popped the EZ brain on a Boe bot frame I had. Provided lots of fun for me and my 8 yr old. Then we pulled out the hot glue and put together a 4 axis robot arm in just a few hours and thanks to the frames sequencing it was easy peasy. I came to the conclusion that building a 18 servo Hexapod was the best use for this controller. It could easily control the roboquad with IR LED if or when someone deciphers the output of the remote. So far so fun I will add another board before long to teach some aspects of micro controllers in my kiddos class.

Hello, I emailed EZ-Robot to find out the status of D.J. and my RoboQuad and the remote leversofpower sent him. I am happy to see he is fine, this is what I got back.
"DJ is doing more than OK. We are working on some new really exciting technologies. One of them the features he's working on requires a lot of testing using your RoboQuad. If it's alright DJ would love it if he could hold onto it for another month or two."
So maybe soon all of the people following the thread might have an answer as to how to connect their EZ-B to their RoboQuad.

if some one could catch the ir transmissions and post them we might be able to come up with something using the "sendserial" command. but first we need to know how to wire up.

I know them. A friend got them for me. I will see if I can find them.

RoboQuad Header is $6. It uses a 12 bit 1200 baud protocal with no stop bits. It wants about 500 ms before retransmission

Hi DJ,
I am just checking to see if you have any update on connecting EZ-robot to my RoboQuad, I think there are several people who are interested in the outcome. I am looking foward to getting it back and playing around with it.
Again thanks,

Yea. I would love to know how too...

Hello DJ, Have you forgotten about my Roboquad of mine that you have? It's been about a year since I sent it to you.
I understand you are very busy with the new launch of the Revolution, but I would like my RoboQuad back if you don't have the time to make a video on how to connect it to the EZ controller.
Thanks,
Steve Tripoli

The last email I received was from Jason Zeiler on Aug 20th, he wanted to keep it for a couple of more months to work on getting the EZ-be connected to it. I hope he is having success.

So I thought I'd buy a really nice roboquad for my son to connect it to the ez-b. Now accidentelly I stumble across this thread. Just now I opened up my sons roboquad and guess what ? *mad*
Boy, what a bummer.

DJ, isn't this something my fellow-country man Niek could solve ? Great story about him and the change to learn at ez-robot btw.

My son (8) has autism and is currently in a programm to help develop famous robot NAO to work with autistic children. He'd love to have his roboquad do things NAO can and I believe ez-b is the next thing for him to experience and get more exited about robots.

Please show us how to make this roboquad work.

Thanks,
Leonard

I also purchased a RoboQuad like that. I had planned to install an EZB3.
Right now it is not my 1st priority.

Any word on any progress? Anyone?

Support for Wowwee robots has been deprecated. And alternative is to get a Six Hexapod, which is a much more versatile and real robot to learn with, including vision recognition camera, mobile device support and thousands of other features.

For the next few days during Cyber Week, the Elastic Turret Hexapod is a real good deal. It includes additional servos for shooting elastic bands and is priced much less than Six Hexapod and includes more servo-motor parts.

So uh, did Steve ever get his robot back?

Oh man, that was a long time ago, I believe we sent it back to him. I'm not sure if he's still around to verify.
