Step 2: Equipment and Supplies

I have created a list of equipment and supplies you will need to build you own robot. I have attached an excel file that list all the items and website links for the supplies. The total cost for the basic robot is just a little over a $100, but this does not include shipping. Some things you may want to consider going to a store nearby that sells these products, like the balsa which can normally be found in a hobby store or craft store.

I also added some optional items. I suggest holding off, on getting the battery for they can be a little expensive and the one listed doesn't even come with a charger. I suggest just getting a 5 - 6 volt source and run a wire, because the robot won't be walking very far, very fast. Finally I would suggest getting the accelerometer to help the robot balance itself, but it may be a little hard for someone that doesn't have much experience in programming.
<p>This looks amazing, I'll be building it!</p><p>Thank you! :D</p>
<p>Great Job Guys..! Love it..! ;)</p>

<p>Wow, that is amazing. I'm glad you took it much further than I ever did. Great Job.</p>
can u plz send me the code for moving all legs <br>in .doc file <br>thanks in advance <br>asif_degarian@yahoo.com
<p>were you able to get the code for the legs?</p>
<p>yes i have made that code and we executed in our fyp successfully</p>
<p>can you send me the code for this project?</p><p>thanks</p>
hey <br> <br>why have u designed a wooden quadrupped robot since we are getting robot kits and parts at a very very cheap cost now .pi suggest u to visit the following site <br>http://danuc.com/index.php?main_page=index&amp;cPath=5 <br>http://danuc.com/index.php?main_page=index&amp;cPath=3 <br>http://danuc.com/index.php?main_page=index&amp;cPath=4 <br> <br>please design using these products. I have also developed one and it works perfect.
I don't enough to money to buy the Servo Motor.But I really want to do it.So could you answer me Can I use the Motor Encoder please?
um im doing this as a science project and i want to know if you can tell me a store to buy all of the stuff: home depo walmart ect. <br>thank ypo <br>
There is a Parts and Material page for this tutorial, that contains an excel file that has a website link for each item.
sir, i am trying to build a quad pet with 8 servo using c language but i am finding very hard to implement because i am first time using servo motor and unable to control it so sir can you plz gave me few sample code to control servo motor and rest i can do it my self because my teacher don't know any thing about servo motor programing.
There is an example available in the programming page of this tutorial. It contains code to control the PWM driver, which controls the servo.
also can it be near west covina <br>i cant quite get where to put the wires <br>
that is one of the great idea......i liked it now very soon going to work on it..... <br>
hello I liked this project. I'm starting with the programming of arduiuno and I would like to know how you can add this robot to any sensor or by remote control. thanks
That is awesome! I've been thinking about an inexpensive quadruped robot, but you beat me to it and with some good ideas that can be easily scaled / modified / adapted. I love those legs.
Great first instructable! The videos definitely help, and your photos were sufficient. Flesh out that intro a bit more, and keep developing your photography skills (pun!). Soon you'll be winning contests with the best of 'em.
Thanks for the advice, I'll try to improve this instructable as soon as I can.
here dude see this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmcRGSNJZQQ&amp;feature=g-u-u <br>
Hey It's awesome and I'm surely gonna try this... <br>Can you please let me know how the software works I didn't quite understand that part properly... <br>Please mail it to me.. <br>id- nitin.bhalla93@gmail.com <br>Will await for your reply.
