    Yay, glad to hear! If you feel like sharing on Thingiverse, I have a feeling some other beginners might like to use an adjusted body STL for their projects.

    [DIY] Spider Robot(Quad Robot, Quadruped)

    I can't speak for the Micro Pro, but I'm using the Arduino Uno to no problems. I think the main thing is making sure that there are enough analog, digital, and power/grounds to plug all the legs and components into the board.

    Hi Mr. M,Actually, I think it's the contrary; you're not feeding enough energy into the DC-DC. The ones that have worked for me are 12V 4A (I think 5A is the highest it can go without frying it, but not entirely sure). Here are some pictures below of two that have worked for me. As always, make sure everything is properly grounded and such before plugging in. If you're trying to find a power supply that is 12V 4A, here is where I found mine. https://www.ebay.com/p/12-volt-4-amp-12v-4a-48w-ac...In addition, I needed to convert the DC plug to power ground in order for it to be plugged into my set up. Here's where I found that: https://www.adafruit.com/product/743Adafruit also has a 12V power supply, but it was more expensive than the one I found on eBay. If you want everything in one ship...

If you want everything in one shipment, then Adafruit's should be fine, but I haven't tested their power supply myself.Hope this helps!

    Hi Mr. MSo the jack+ connected in the breadboard goes into the DC-DC COV Out, and the jack- in the breadboard goes into the DC-DC COV In. There should also be two other cables connected into the other DC-DC COV Out and DC-DC COV In, and that connects directly into the 12V power. I've included some images on my Github media folder (Front_of_DC and Back_of_DC) to provide context. Does that help?
