cool! im going to post soon too an astromech droid. Some tips: *connect sensors on the head. *place the Ultrasonic sensor lower than the head, so that it can see low things. *place the legs higher, on the highest end of the nxt, under the head. *maybe you have use this tip, but use one 2x360 wheel (also called castor wheel) on the 3th leg. So it can turn good. Succes with building!


cool


@lama-mantis : Thank you for your tip, I'll do that :)


OOOOOH so the servo motors are vertical to operate the treads right? Dosen't that reverse the controlls?


Looks good for a start, but it definitely could use a lot more work. ;)


@Robogeek : the servo connected to treads directly, And I didn't get the mean with 'Dosen't that reverse the controlls?' :S What did you meaning for?


@mate called 'nxtstep101' :P Thank you mate :) I am going to do a lot of work :)
