R6: My R6 moves
I couldnt resist and had to bolt on the legs and feet, power up the motors and see if all this hard work was worth it. YES, it moves, it is alive. There is a great deal of work still to do but I now feel so good knowing that the drive system will work and that the motors are powerful enough to move what is becoming a very heavy R6.I will have to work out a system to lock the ankle joints as under power they currently pivot. These motors have a great deal of torque and put the ankles under a lot of turning force.
I will try and get the body skins drawn out over then ext few days and do a bit more work on the legs.
