Is it only me that thinks the space for building is tight?

by guenzi22

I printed one OTTO V3 with my own printer and ordered one kit from CH...
But at both kits the head part is extremely small for assembling the shield and echo sensor. It doesnt make any sense to scale the parts because then the holes for echo sensor and screwings are not at the right place.
Is there any remake/remix that offers more space for assembling the parts? I mentioned to build some OTTOes with my 12 year old students but in this case it's not possible. They are'nt patient enough for such a tiny assembly.

Kind regards,

Leg servos and fitting

by AlexHolsgrove

I have printed the legs and feet out, but I've had to glue the servo arms to the legs otherwise the leg won't stay attached to the servo. Secondly, the feet seem to wobble as the little nub/post on the leg doesn't hold into the foot - it can just lift out of the groove. Should the foot servo arm also be glued to the foot itself?
