New "all in one" 3d printed part for the legs :
New metal parts! This time in stainless steel of 4mm.Hope it doesn't bend like the 5mm aluminium one.Thanks to John steel https://www.john-steel.com for the cutouts !
Given the results of the last test, I am trying to place shocs/vibrations absorber on each leg and on the electronics compartment
Look like 5mm aluminum wasn't enough..I am thinking about using 4mm Inox for the next version !
(Sorry for the vidéo low quality)
I have buy an hoverboard with bigger wheels, i am gonna search for a second one and put 4 of those big wheels on the robot.
All the 4 motor are now wired, i use 10% power for testing. This thing is waaaay too powerful, need to take it outside.
I have burn a motor controller trying using the "en" (enable) pin.Need to find better quality 42v brushless motor controller for the futur.
Thanks to J2S Meca for machining them !https://www.facebook.com/J2SMECA/
I want to use some ethernet connectors/cables for the legs data wire (one eth peer leg).Using an old 4 ports switch board.

Great project! What's next now that you had some successful driving tests?
Are you sure? yes | no
Thank ! The driving tests was a success, but some aluminium part of the frame bend. I am right now fixing this by replacing them by steel parts, and improving some 3d design.Next step is adding some electronics (GPS, imu, camera, sensors, 4g modem) and some software to remote control it like a drone. ^^
man I really like this project I also have two hoverboards laying around and I was thinking of doing something with them and this project really helped me thanks bro I really want more updates keep making them come
Thanks ! I will continue to post project updates. I hope to be able to do the first driving test soon.
Looks very intriguing. Quite different between the first and second version. Please keep the update and pictures coming
Thanks ! Yes I changed my mind for 2 reasons 1) The cost, lot of different metal parts is more expensive to buy than 8x the same parts 2) I was afraid of having a lot of mechanical backlash with all the joints, and not being able to put bearings everywhere.
