Well that isn't very helpful information from Canada Post, is it? Hmm!! Can you send me a message (from the FAQ page) with your shipment tracking number and I'll get hold of Canada Post and see what's up?

That's strange! They are all shipped airmail. Somehow that is a mistake. I hope the entire shipment wasn't surface. Grrrrrrr:(

Maybe there are some issues at customs in Holland? You can use the tracking number again your local mail service. You can even phone your mail service and provide them with that tracking number.

Hello,

Since the IR sensor is discontinued, what would be the best place to add this ping sensor, without making, lets say a wall-e look weird.....


thanks,

Carlos.

I was thinking of adding a ping sensor mounted on a small motor in his belly area. I know it isn't entirely wall-e like, but it will be functional.

Hey Lyron, Canada Post had a huge strike awhile back. It might have delayed your package about a week or so. Either way I hope you have your EZB by now.

Yes! it works, if you have a 3 pin ping))) sensor, you need to make the trigger and response port the same and it will work with 250 delay!
#29  
on the maxsonar you can hook it up as HC-SR04 OR SRF04
USING ECHO AND TRIGGER
ON THE MAXSONAR TRIGGER IS RX PIN
AND ECHO IS THE PW PIN
no conversion is needed like in analog mode,also analog mode jumps aroung alot and not always steady and its great for robot eyes
dual ultrasonic sensors dont fit well in most robotic toys eyes
but a single transmitt and receive ultrasonic sonar can


another thing about using the maxsonar it using very low current ,not like the hc-sr04 or parallax does ,2ma compare to 30-35ma on parallax ping
so battery will last a lot longer
cost it lower too $25 compare to $30
