Buy an Axon, Axon II, or Axon Mote and build a great robot, while helping to support SoR.

Hi luisonI checked our system, and your Axon gets shipped out Saturday morning. It'll take typically ~3-5 days to reach your country, and from there its up to your local customs/post. Print out your receipt if you need to pick it up from customs, just in case.SoR isn't a major retailer, so I can't afford to ship on a daily basis. Usually I ship only once or twice a week, depending on the orders.Sounds like you'll be doing a few all-nighters!
Oh and btw, your robot looks really cool.If you are pressed for time and don't have working code yet, I recommend using WebbotLib and my Biped Gait Engine to get you started.My ERP code would be a good example for you, although it uses the Blackfin camera instead.I am a bit concerned about the big digital servos you are using and the current they will draw. The original Axon doesn't separate servo power from MCU power, so sudden power drains might cause a reset. Do you know the average and peak current consumption, and what batteries are you using? The Axon II might be better for you as it can keep servo power separate, but I can't ship that out until next Monday/Tuesday and I'm worried about your deadline. Another option is to order both, just in case the Axon isn't up to snuff for your application.Let me know asap!
Well, the reset limitation is that of the battery, actually. But your two lipos in parallel won't be a problem!Out of curiosity, what would you say the average current draw is, per battery, into the Axon power bus?
From each power bus... theoretically 70A at peak. (14 5990 servos)
130A . . . I hate to be around if it was accidentally shorted! QuoteFrom each power bus... theoretically 70A at peak. (14 5990 servos)For frying a power trace, the peak current doesn't really mean much, just the average current.Does your Axon even get warm?
I think no... but you are worrying me If i put the bat. in C6, the current of this power trace will reduce 50%, because, I obtain two power bus... (C6 is on the middle of a power trace). Or that's what i think.
When you finish the bot, post some links here, and I'll get you traffic in return.
