Meet AXIS
here are some pictures before adding servos.
the chassis is hand cut from some Black PVC with a Stanly blade. i would love to have the tools to do things like this properly. :|

anyway...

you will also notice in the last picture, just above its right front legs i caught a "fly" in the picture. 8)

thanks. its only really a prototype. works well i think.

the set up is:
atom pro28 microcontroller with Lynxmotion botboard and SSC32 servo controller. Ps2 remote, and 12x hs645mg servos for the tar's, femur's and tibia's and hs485hb#s for the coxas.

AXIS has had a Face lift.

Mainly to save some money on getting a new chassis cut and investing in a new board, etc.
I still need to tidy up the wires and make a few tweaks but apart from that, im happy with it. 8)

Any thoughts?
