I have continued to work on the robot legs and have them 'static' walking

All the main support parts are made in aluminum 

Still using RoboClaw boards for driving the 10 motors, all motors have encoders

New all joints have angle sensors

I have a IMU on the platform and am using roll and pitch

power is from 3 LION 3.7 volt cells on the top back,  cells are from a hybrid car

I finally listened to Ray and have the weight on the top, inverted pendulum

A raspberry pi is mounted on the electronics panel and I hope to use it to make decisions on what to do.

Currently the Arduino Mega is running everything.  The Pi should enable me to use MRL.

since I machined a lot of alum. parts, I wouldn't expect othe people to make these.

The ABS parts in my eariler legs didn't take the stress

I am collecting data from the IMU, angle senstor, roboclaw boards  example:

Having that mass up there should also give more confidence that it will carry the Inmoov robot on top of the legs.

It's good to see your still working on it :-)

Wahoo, John, nice to see your progressing on the legs!

You may want to join the mrl discord chanel, it would be nice to have you around again.
