Attaching Servos to the Body

A project log for Pony Bot

A robo-pet

So while I'm waiting for the PCB, I mock-assembled the remaining legs and started to do mockups with two-sided tape...

I'm still trying to find a good way of attaching those servos to the body of the pony. Two-sided tape is obviously not the answer. Gluing them there is sub-optimal, as I might need to replace them. I don't have screws long enough to catch the servo ears and reach the body.

My current thinking is gluing some additional ears to the servos, near the bottom, and then attaching those to the body with screws.

Didn't get it to move yet, but a very similar #Katka goes at about 25mm/s. Double that while trotting. I hope to get a similar speed with this one.
