Hey there guys I got a few questions for payload on anyone who is building or has built a hexapod. I've designed this guy up for my son this week. Its a WIP as I work my way through weight, 3d print wall thickness and infill.
This Hex will have 18 EZ Robot HDD servos. I was looking at 5500 ma lipo batteries and they are about 17 oz in weight. Now add in the printed parts and the weight of all those servos, I think it will come in at about 4 or 5 pound total weight. I know the weight will be distributed over 18 servos when idle and 9 when walking, but curious as to anyones experience with layloads and these type of robots. The character on top will only be a few ounces so he doesn't add too much to the overall weight. But the battery is a killer.
Anyways any input, things to watch out for, would be great.
