That's a wicked platform. are the tracks driven by servos?

The 2 servos that came in the kit. Butted together just made it on width . Started off as a toy from Walmart for $19.98 .

Hmm. I think Box Bot may get an upgrade this weekend. I like the idea of treads, particularly on a little bot ehere the wheeld have trouble on carpet.

Tracks are always cool, and these are pretty cheap as a set.

It was the bucket for the backhoe. I split it in half then cutout the side and used that piece to reinforce the other side

I've already changed the claw. I'm not using those aluminum brackets I made. I went to 3 small gear ssalvaged from the toys gearbox.I want to cram 2 small servos between the claws to keep it short. Once I get that done the rest if the arm should go right together.:) J.W.

great job,nice work on the claw
using a different claw for my design.but using the same setup as yours,it little like the robotic claw they sell by robodyssey

then latter 3 more boards

The drive servos are the ones that come with the EZ-B kit. The claw and arm servos Are those small 9g ones from Hobby King:) JW

Thanks DJ It's just made from left overs from the backhoe and some cheap servos I already had from my RC Crashplanes !:)
