I would like to know the exact Darwin-op pc board ? and if it's for sale.

I came accros this link

http://www.toradex.com/node/885/Robin/Robin_Modules/Robin-Z530-L-V2.1a

that look the same pc board or a better one ? can someone tell me that this will work for building robot?

I don't own Darwin but I would like to build a robot but at long term, for now I'm have more interest for the inside of the robot.

I would like to program in windows environement instead of linux because I don't know very well linux and I already make a piece of software in c# that I could use with the robot AI part.

I know I could use a simple pc computer but I have the fund for pc board and I could use it for other kind of application.

I know darwin-op software is opensource and I would like to know if there a c# of vb.net version of the code.

I know that I should start simple "beginner" but I don't want to invest in small rotor and small board that have limited option.

My goal is not to build a war bot for combat or competition.... be make a robot that will move like Darwin but could clean the floor with a real small broom. Instead of using Roomba bot that would be cool to see biped cleaning the house.

If I'm going to invest a lot of money in this than it should be useful for me.

thanks. :)

Where I could buy them ? I need the exact thing, because I plan to use their software for experiment.

Edit: I found a link : http://www.fit-pc.com/ there's a newer model Z550 2000Ghz speed is this will fit with the module CM-700?

and for the CM-700 link : http://www.robotshop.com/module-command ... tis-4.html

why darwin-op is so Hi in price, I think all part should't go overs 2000$ USD and they sold it 12000$ USD why this price, for profit?

There is information here about the spec of the fit-PC:
http://robosavvy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7658

The sub controller is the CM730, not the CM700. The CM730 also needs some additional small boards. You should contact Robosavvy or Trossen to get a price for the set.

The MX28 servos used on Darwin are around $200 each, so the 20 servos add up to $4000 already. Then you need to add, Fit-PC, subcontroller, camera, batteries etc. Finally the metalwork and mouldings. So to build your own to the same spec from the published files would probably be around $6K to $7K in parts.

If you just want to experiment with the software, you can do that for a fraction of that cost. Depends on the goal of your experiment and your skills.
