This blog tracks and displays my R2-D2 building progress! Made almost entirely of aluminum, the goal is to build an autonomous, PC powered robot that will "act" like the R2-D2 we all know from the movies!

Trying out plastic velcro on the servos
I wanted to give plastic velcro a chance with the servo mounting.
I also wanted to show off a fasntastic tool I bought from the local RC shop for making the perfect 90 degree bend in the linkage rod...
And finally, you can see how the torque, all 48 ounces of it, tugs the servo off the velcro. (Dang!)
Here's a short video summarizing my attempt with plastic velcro.
