I have converted to all metal gears on both 1108 and 1111 servos. I did this for resilience rather than performance. I have kept battery voltage to 8.4V and not raised to 11.1V.
I did break a few plastic gears, mainly by long drops, rather than sudden moves or strains.

We are working on a robot controller based on the Bifferboard and the I/O controller will have Robobuilder ports. Since the higher level protocols will be Bioloid Dynamixel based, we intend a proxy to convert between. This may allow you to use some of the open source apps. for bioloid on the Robobuilder.

Let us know if you have any ideas around this.

Alternatively it should not be difficult to adapt something like Pypose to the Robobuilder direct.

Hey l3v3rz I read in another post that you have some code for making RB walk around and avoid obstacles. I was curious where I could find some more info on this? It sounds really interesting and Id love to see it in action.

I have a Lisp version of the maze algorithm - which runs using robobuilderlib.dll. Its pretty basic. Its described here, see "A'mazing" pg 48

Its not continuous walking though, for that you need something more like pepep code (its written in LISP). Have a look in the forums LISP thread for more info on it, here's a video of it in action:

You could even now write in BASIC - have a look here at examples including a basic continuous walk:

I think the next challenge is to create a stearable continuous walk, with autobalance.

cheers
