dsc03423I went ahead and changed the neck mount platform, upper frame and added the AR7000 receiver (I had plenty hanging around) to handle the head and neck servos for the pan and tilt action. I also modified Dans’ power board to output 3.3v so it will power my C-3PO’s eyes. At the build off I will learn how to program the Roboduino board to automate the head and hand movements movements when I am not manually controlling him…

I decided to change my frame to aluminum. It seems to suit my needs better for the positioning of the legs and the electronics I wanted to install. A simple ladder system is what I decided to use. I then had a shelf welded for the neck mechanism. As mentioned earlier I had sent my parts off to Coat of Chrome to get gold plated. They came back today. They look spectacular.dsc01925
