So....I Bit The Bullet And Purchased An Ultimate Wall-E

300.00 shipped....with remote.

ive studied the tear down pics. and i think there are a totla of 8 motors.....

i know if i use the motor controllers from DJ's store they only control 2 motors at a time and take up 5 ports on the ezb....

i think i can only put a max of 2 maybe 3 motor controlers on 1 EZB, right?

that gives me 4 maybe 6 motors....what do you guys think is the best way of avoiding putting 2 ezbs in the ultimate wall-e

Reason i m trying to do this, is because it will be awesome to keep all the originalmovement but to have ultimate control via a xbox 360 controller.

What is the best way to go about this...

one last thing....one of the motors int eh neck is a flat circle motor....a stepper motor? maybe ? not sure....ill post a pic soon....maybe you guys/ 1 gal can confirm is the ezb can power it.

thanks guys and 1 gal

Well, it was advertized as 17" tall. Guess we'll see. Money back for misleading advertizement otherwise.

Like I said, we'll see.

Hope you do get the Ultimate Wall-E and that's a steal of a price if you did! IMHO, a bit pricey for a U-Command Wall-E, but I guess with eBay as it is jacking up the prices it's not as bad as it could have been!;)

Sorry man. That's a u command. Sucks!!!

You know, come to think of it, I think I remember this photo from a previous auction, and it was for a u-command. Well, if it is, and the seller gives me any grief, I'll simply go to PayPal and eBay forum. He has a 100% rating, I'm sure he doesn't want to risk that with a misrepresented sale.

if i buy a robot over $100 i would restore it to add to my super robot collection ,like the heathkit hero jr and hero one paid $480 for one and $560 for the other and just bought another hero jr for $300 for parts to restore my hero jr, whats left over is the shell ,motors and frame so will use EZB for it
but thats only way i would pay and use it for EZB

#23  
Cyberdude, yeah im sure you'll be fine...never had a prob with paypal..and good sellers.
#24  
yeah i never had a problem with sellers and paypal and ebay too
#25  
Well, the box came this morning, and as soon as I saw it, I knew what I had...a "U-command", not an "Ultimate". *eyeroll*

Oh well. I contacted the seller and explained the grossly misrepresented item. I'll let you know how that goes;)
#26  
make shore they pay to ship it back,sometimes they dont.they did it to me on a item and i contacted ebay and they got my shipping back
#27  
Will do. I made it clear that since the misrepresented the sale so badly, that I expected them to eat the shipping. (both directions!)
#28  
Already heard back. Guy didn't know what he was selling, was told by whomever supplied it to him that it was an "Ultimate". Is refunding everything including shipping, both directions.

A bummer, but will wash out in the end.

I agree about the Heathkit Hero.. I am going to gut mine, install the Ez Robot controller and the ez robot arm I think that should really bring it into the "modern world"

@oizee, ebay or Amazon.com may be your friend when searching for the wall-e remote.
