May I present you Dude; my Inmoov taking forever to complete.

I'm using a portable JumpStart car power booster (LiPo battery) to power the entire robot. Light weight and surprisingly good so far.

Using 2 Castle BEC-Pro to step down the 12V supply. They are programmable step-down voltage regulator. I programmed one to 7.4V to match the EZB-V4 supply (LiPo 2S) directly driving 7.4V servos (hands, wrist, eyes,). I programmed the other one to 6.0V for the Hitek HS-805BB servos.

Using 2 Logiix Blue Piston speakers for the ears. Got them for free and looks good.

Dude where's my car, lol

Your robots looking good. I'm curious how many amps that car battery you have is .

@Merne
Thanks.
LOL. Also works well with "Hey Dude, go get me a beer !" lol

If I remember correctly, that car booster battery was spec at 200A continuous and 400A peak. This is typical battery spec for RC toys LiPo battery.
I got that one more than 2 years ago to boost the engine in my boat when I forget the lights on for a week or two (Yikes !). I was very surprise the first time I was able to crank that 75HP motor. Since then, I see those booster pretty much everywhere at very reasonable price.

@kazobond We can never have too many inMoovs... Nice work... Very neat wiring but I do see a second ezb4 (or an ssc-32 of sorts) in your inmoov's future... LOL. You run out of digital ports real quick building an inMoov...

@Richard,
Good eye Watson, and it's obvious that you have Inmoov experience. I'm a big fan of your work.
I did anticipate this some time ago, and got myself a second EZB4 with camera on Black Friday.

Is this one of the Blues Brother? I love your pictures.
Seriously, very nice work. The wiring at the back is impressive

@kazobond Sure blame it on your kids...:) Please tell me you're not trying to make a robot girlfriend?:D Besides, inMoov doesn't make a very pretty girl at all...:P

Actually, the kids in question are my older sisters, but don't tell anybody. They had so much fun being silly.
