He's rollin'!

My Vantec motor controller came today, and tonight I got it temporarily hooked up to my scooter motor foot drives in R2-G4... and he took his first steps across the basement floor!

I am so stoked now.

BTW he's a freakin' tank. I hit the stick on the Futaba radio a little hard the first time and he lurched forward and pushed my 4'x8' plywood work table about a foot.

pics and movies to come soon

Three feet on the ground

Got the center foot mounted and temporarily connected into the frame. Looks pretty good so far. Foot is nowhere near done - still needs details and paint. I'm just happy to see him in 3-leg mode for the first time.
