I've eventually got around in completely rebuilding my Hexapod ( Ziggy ) using the HDD Servos, after I completely disassembling it a couple of yrs ago to use parts on my InMoov.
The new HDD servos has definitely stopped ALL the servo buzzing under load. This Hexapod is made of metal and with 20 Servos and other parts like batteries it make it extremely heavy.
I lost all of my Scripts for this Hexapod on my old laptop, so I have had to start scripting again from scratch. Before I had a number of walking Gait scripts
( Tripod, Wave, and Ripple ), but at the moment I've only completed this Wave gait, which is the simplest of the gaits to do, but its the slowest gait and not very elegant!

Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
Did you create the motion and gait using the Auto Position control?
Very well done! Smooth and quiet
Could you provide a parts lists for the servo horns and arms?
The aluminum servo horns I got from a chinese website and the arms were laser cut by a company here in the UK, this was about 5 or 6 years ago!
Yes, the ultrasonic sensor is wired up and fully functional. I’ve written a few scripts to test it out and it works fine. I will put these into the walking gait scripts, once happy with which type of gait I will use.
I do like the HDD Servos their GREAT, at the moment the servo moving the ultrasonic sensor from side to side, isn’t a HDD as the bracket only takes a small type servo, hence isn’t as smooth as the others! I must look at modifying it to accommodate a HDD servo.
