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
Upgrade to ARC Pro

Did you happen to get the iPod/MP3 player holder with yours? I'm looking for the one that comes with the Ultimate Wall-E if you have no use for yours. Let me know!
As for number of motor controllers you can use with the EZ-B, looks like they're already talking about that HERE! So check out that link.
(1) Continuous 360 servo - Left Track Drive
(1) Continuous 360 servo - Right Track Drive
(1) Micro servo - Left Arm (Up/Down)
(1) Micro servo - Right Arm (Up/Down)
(1) Micro servo - Head (Up/Down)
(1) Standard servo - Neck (Left/Right)
To me anything more is a creative bonus.
P.S. I'm not sure of the difference between the Ultimate and Interactive, but
assume they are somewhat similar.
Lumpy - this wall is is like 3 tunes The size. I the wheels are huge and the motors work well. Also, already does a body tilt to.
And yeah 300.00...so I want to jeep the Modding to min.
If I can just " take control of existing motors he would be perfect. Then I would just make the front battery chest plate a small LCD, saw a video on YouTube.
I'm off to do more reaseach. Thanks for the fast replays.
Sorry for typing. On my cell.
If the treads are run off individual motors I'd just add a 2.5A motor controller to take charge of them.
Should still be able to use servos (Standard instead of micro) for arms, head, neck.
You'll just have more room to play with than us with the meager Interactive units. ;-)
Best of luck, post lots of pics!
I know it might seem intimidating at first to modify the chassis with servos, but i suggest it. Adding motor controllers will allow movement, but not specified positions. Servos will give your robot a personality by allowing you to create dance routines and specific positions, etc.
see i didnt know that.....
ok cool ill leave the motors in the wheels but replace everything else....
i think im going to finish up my mini wall e first then build my r2 with body tild and 3rd leg movement...before i "destroy" this awesome robot.
Take a lot of picture so i can look how you do it
Hope to see an other really soon.
Anywho! Been thinking some. I figure 4 servos for each arm. This will give me full control of each hand. Up down. In out. Hand rotation and finger grips, whaaaaaaaaaaaat!
im doing this.
I also have great ideas for r2s body tilt. Projector in dome. Retrqctable 3rd leg. Dope!
I AM SO PSYC'ED !!!!!!!
(I thought about whether or not I should gloat, but I am so damn excited, I couldn't hold it in. I apologize.)
Now if only I could get my replacement ping sensor from EZB, I could start prototyping my plan!!!! Hint Hint
But also for a u-command it's cheap !!
Like I said, we'll see.
lol i think we all want it to be the real ultimate wall-e!!!
but thats only way i would pay and use it for EZB
Any one listen to Kevin and bean on Kroq?
Oh well. I contacted the seller and explained the grossly misrepresented item. I'll let you know how that goes
A bummer, but will wash out in the end.
