This is 3DOF 4 legs robot, AKA "quadruped".

Originally I was using Arduino based FLYDUINO 12 servo controller, however it doesn't work as I expect so I am still looking for proper MCU.


bodyTop.stl x 1
bodyBottom x1
bodyLink4 x 1 (bodyLink4_long for taller 9G servo version)
joint x 2 (Left and Right)
legShield x 2 (Left and Right)
ServoX2Frame x 1
4-40 bolts, washers and nuts x 20+ more
Flange Bearing 3x6x3mm x 12(You can get it from ebay and they usually carry x10 per order)

Since all 9G servo may come have different sizes, you might needto do some modification to match servos and parts. In case you need to modify original sketch I have attach them in ZIP.
Please note I have use 3M double side tape on each serovs bottom and caps. the type holds them pretty well so they don't falling apart.

No video avaliable yet before I find the suitable MCU.

UPDATE 2013.Jan 20:
I have add a longer version of link parts in between 2 body plates. I figure some of 9G servos are taller that might cause the friction on servo caps and top body plate.
