You’re a diamond mate. The photo and the pdf shine a new light on my thinking and open up some real opportunities to customize the unit.
I had just finished a rough concept for a saddle see sketch below but will hold off until I find out if I can get the cad drawing of the famous purple cover.
I don’t need the usb, aux audio and extra pin gubbins and if Vincross can confirm that It doesn’t need the cameras and distance meter then it may be an opportunity to remove all of that and give me a low center of gravity for the payload. I am attaching a lidar sensor with camera and live feed on the payload which I think can potentially also be used for navigation of the hexapod.
Thanks for the tip about the batteries. I just received hexa a couple of weeks ago and slowly getting familiar with the hardware and software. I really appreciate the work that Vincross have done on this unit and impressed with the entire package although I am a little concerned that the operating duration is very short and nothing like the 40mins (more like 10mins). Was wondering if there are batteries that could last longer in the market ?
I probably need to raise another couple of posts on the forum as I need to see if anyone has had success using analog controller as an accessory to their mobile device when using the hexa app as I need the tactile feel when controlling the hexapod and any suggestions from the forum community on the best way to change the relax settings for the hexapod (currently sits down after approx. 15 seconds. Let me know if you have any experiences with either that you would like to share will be greatly appreciated.
All the best
