Step 3: Modify the Arms to Move

So your robot is back from the spa and feeling great. Now is the perfect time to begin operating!

The Omnibot doesn't have motorized arms. That can be fixed with a little dremel action. Follow the pictures to view how the servo was installed. You will need some pretty powerful servos for the arms. Make sure you lubricate the joints with a little grease.

The servos I used for the arms are Eagle high torque servos. They can be a little expensive, but very strong.

Watch the Video #1 to see how the arms were modified and assembled. It was actually quite easy :D
