Djandco's Wall.e

StorySkip to comments

Hi,
This is my take on the EZ-B Wall.e
While I wait for my kit to arrive I thought I would share some ideas.
The first step was to do the arms, I had some small servos left over from an Arduino project which will do the arms and hopefully the neck too.
So far I have the arm section done, I will post as I go along and I welcome any suggestions.

This method leaves the clutch in place on the arms.
It also gives around 80° of movement in his arms.

Regards

Djandco

Djandco,
I am running two EZ-B's with over 22 servos, 3 H-Bridges , 3 transistor switches, and 4 analog ports and mine run just fine. I don't think your problem is your largeness. When I am having trouble I always check the last thing I did. Maybe something happened during your new battery install.

I used the Large Wall.e 2 example and changed the settings to suit my servo's. Then I saved it under a different name. The thing was running fine then just dropped out. I was trying to get the speech rec to work (with no joy) so I opened the example again and made the changes again and it works fine.
As you say, you look at the last thing you do but in this case it was adjusting the mic settings.

As this is the first one there are bound to be mistakes ;)

But all is working again, (apart from the speech bit!)

I assume with the amount of servo's you are using you are not building a Wall.e then?
Either that or it is going to be one monster of one!
