R5-D4's Dome control system 1.1

Ordered my Dome motor the other week.
Along with a BaneBots wheel and the adaptors, required to combine forces.

The motor I ordered from Maplins, the wheel and adaptor I ordered from Technobot
(low stock levels)
Spent a few hours working on how best to fit it.

After following the R2D2 build made by Victor Franco,
I decided that I'd copy this simple straight forward option
of controlling R5's dome (29.09.14)
A fellow UK Builder also has a similar design to control his R2 unit.

Already having some bits, this for me was a cheep alternative to buying the
SyRen 10 speed controller.

I liked the idea of the Perspex panel on the main control board,
so dug out a spare piece and got to work
on machining out a slot for the servo to fit into.

Next was to cut up some smaller 'pads' for the switches to sit on and be bolted too.

More to follow.....


R5-D4 going into storage....Seasons Greetings

Unfortunately myself & R5 won't be able to attend this weekends planned event. So with no further events this year, he'll be getting ready to be stored away till the New Year and be ready for 2015's events.

Got a few things to work on though, dome motorisation, 'Bad Motivator' system, maybe even some sounds?!?!? So a lot of things to keep me busy.

So till then......

Christmas Wishes to you all.
