"archetype" Finally Complete

StorySkip to comments

Well it's never really complete right?

Here's my first (whew!) fully working droid, "Archetype". As you can see its somewhat EZbit "friendly" so room for expansion is possible.

I hope you all like my style...back to the old way of doing things, without 3D printers. Having said that, I have to credit Richard R for the ezbits.

Enjoy, and comments and suggestions are appreciated!

As of right now, I can't use everything at the same time, since it causes the ezb to brown out. I have also done the super cap fix, although it helps, I still only have a 2 amp voltage regulator running everything. That's only temporary of course. Once I get a higher amp battery I'll post some videos.

When I talked to him about a week ago, he told me you were going to help him with it. I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with. If I can help, let me know. Bandwidth is pretty tight right now but I will do what I can.

Guys, I can't thank you enough! Working on the video! I'm just finalizing the drivetrain on this thing, so a few minor changes may occur.

Update:
I found a cost effective laser diode that'll kick @$$.
