Say hello to the Swashbot


CrabFu writes in –

Here is a simple 3 legged (4 micro servos) robot, made from spare r/c parts I had laying around. The principle of the movement and control is based on r/c helicopter’s swash plate, using a eccpm helicopter transmitter.

    Thats one sweet bot, wish I had a 4channel TX I would really like to build somethink along the same lines…

    I would add a small micro CCTV cam, the ones that are powered via 9v battery, then it would be great as a spy/search robot due to its small size and movability…

    Charming and a bit unsettling! How long before those AA cells get replaced with a proper boiler?

    It’s not as bad ass as the ‘bots on Dr. Who or Episode III, but I’m game. Actually, I’d like someone to build this for my 8-year-old. Actually, I’d like to build one with D. Kat and a bottle of good wine ;)
