Lynxmotion CH3-R Hexapod Robot Kit with BotBoarduino includes everything you need to build a robot to control using the upgraded CH3 with HS-645 servos and a BotBoarduino controller. Its round body symmetry makes this a very unique hexapod walker. The three DOF (degree of freedom) leg design provides the flexibility required to walk in any direction! The robot uses 18 HS-475 / HS-485 servos for the legs. The combo kit includes everything you need to make a functional robot except batteries.
The robot is made from ultra-tough laser-cut Lexan structural components, custom injection molded components, and high-quality aluminum Servo Erector Set brackets.
Lynxmotion CH3-R Hexapod Robot Kit with BotBoarduino comes with the SSC-32, Bot Board II, and BASIC Atom Pro 28. By offloading the servo pulse generation and sequence movement timing to the SSC-32 the BASIC Atom has plenty of power to do some really cool things.
PowerPod program allows the robot to walk with variable speed, in any direction (translation), or turn in place (rotation), or any combination of the two. The leg lift and ride height is adjustable as well as the gait walking speed. There are preset walking modes for tall grass, tile floor, low profile and normal operation. You can rotate the body in every axis.
The Lynxmotion SSC-32 Servo Controller board can be easily controlled with the new SSC-32 Servo Sequencer Utility. It is available as a free downloadable utility which makes it easy to experiment with robotics and animatronics. Download link can be found in Documents section.
