I reckon that if you are getting the power for the servo from the receiver, then the servo is only running on the regulated +5V from the NanoTwo.

What I believe you should do is connect the servo power leads directly to the battery in parallel with the NanoTwo controller to give it the full LiPo voltage it needs.

Hope that works for you. Fantastic looking machine.

As antroboteer mentions you're missing a ton of power by not having the red wire from the servo directly connected to the LiPo (The black can stay on the nano two, that doesn't matter).

Oh I see, totally forgot that the receiver is only getting 5 volts. Thanks for the help guys.

If possible could someone show me how they approached this with their own bots just I have a rough idea of what it should look like.

I was making this earlier for unrelated reasons, might be helpful to you.

Made new bases for Bunny-Ears and Killer-Wolf and heres Killer-wolf's...

Image

thats not good is it? Guess I got some weight shedding ahead but I'll hold off on that until I've looked at alternative materials.

Might work on making 3D models to test ideas.

Thanks, I used the dimensions you posted on another thread on the forum.

Added more to the concept/ design/ model.

Might have gone overboard with it a little.

That looks very good, and I don't think you can really go over the top at the design stage.
I used to just do the basic parts but now I draw up the assembly including all the printing and non printing parts as groups then just save the printable parts as separate drawings for printing.

Well thats good, I did the design so it could be 3D printed in the future but still possible for it to be used to plan out a slightly basic version.

The CAD's are looking good!

Are you printing via shapeways (Nylon sintering printers) or via a filament printer?

Thanks.

Not sure about the printing side of things yet (if I actually do get them printed) it's a case of which service and their cost. Plus the weight of the printed stuff.
